Samples of grenadine claves. Claves (meaning "keys" in Spanish, as in, musical/code/meaning keys, not lock keys) are, basically, wooden sticks beaten together to produce a tone. Similar to woodblocks, but the claves are not hollow.

Four velocity zones, 1 is lowest, 4 is highest. Each sample has been equalised to compensate for microphone response and normalised.

    Note: the typical claves sound is more of a resonant click. This is a much quieter, woody sound, but you can get the resonant click by applying enough reverb. The reason for this is that the woody/resonant character can be balanced with reverb/EQ, easily, unlike the common "resonant spark" sound.
