Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Hardwood khartals – pair

These Percussion Plus Honestly Made Kharkals are made from solid sheesham wood for an impressively rich and full sound when clapped together. The khartal is an ancient instrument from India traditionally used in devotional and folk songs.

Sold as a pair, they consist of one ‘male’ block and a ‘female’ block, with different grips to allow fast and complicated clapping patterns. The blocks also feature tambourine style bells that jingle when shaken, adding to the khartals’ percussive soundscape.

These hardwood khartals are sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments, not toys, and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

How to play

The blocks are shaped slightly differently so that they can be used in one hand with the ‘male’ block held with the thumb whilst the ‘female’ block is mainly balanced on the ring finger. This allows you to clap them together to form fast and complex rhythms, shake like a tambourine, or combine the two!
