Practising zils can be hard work!
As a beginner you will have to practice many hours and the sound of metal zil may end up being unbearable for you, your relatives, you neighbours or even your pets!
For those reasons you may lose heart and stop practicing… but as we dancers all know, a good zil and rhythm practice leads to good dance quality!
Magus Obeiro has designed specially for you the « Happy Zils », the perfect alternative for a quiet and relaxing practice!
Our zils are all custom made for each order which gives you a large variety of choice in wood type, size, options etc.. Though, if you wish to custom them at home, we recommend you order the « untreated option ».
The main difference between pine and oak wood is the weight, pine wood is slightly lighter than oak wood. Regarding the sound it is ruffly the same for pine and oak wood but it varies according to the size you choose. Listen to the zils’ sound
