Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Norway Maple is excellent for music. Rattling them protects the environment!

These are no ordinary maple Klakkers.

The wood is Norway Maple (acer platanoides). "Norway maple is a common tree throughout much of Europe, including (not surprisingly) Norway," reports the Thompson School of Applied Science at The University of New Hampshire. The school also says "the density of the wood makes it an excellent material for musical instrument soundboards. In fact, the fiddlebacks of the famous and unrivaled Stradivarius violins built by Antonio Stradivarius (1644-1737) are rumored to be made of Norway Maple."

This tree might be common in Europe, but here in the States it is considered an invasive species. So the more bones you buy, then the fewer Norway Maple trees will be left to invade our fair slopes.

Like many bone players, Adam's favorite wood is maple. He prefers this wood because "maple is best for anything," he declares. The wood is "very hard, medium weight, and offers a low risk for splitting," he explains. And Adam is especially fond of those "cool curly sheens."

What are Klakkers?

Klakkers are just like other Adam Klein bones except they are straight, not curved. They resemble the shape of a bell clapper. Adam says the design was "Inspired by [Rhythm Bones Society member] Parker Waite's aluminum bones which surprised me with their good sound despite not being curved."

Designed for Kids

These bones are specially designed for children (or folks with very small hands). Adam has taught hundreds of people how to play the bones and he particularly enjoys teaching school kids. "Bones are an excellent inroad into the world of musical performance," says Adam, "and a good way to get kids to learn about rhythm because they are so cool." Kid-size bones are extremely rare. And now you can get kid-size bones that meet the same demanding quality standards as Adam's full-size bones - at just a smaller scale!
