SPOON

It seems that there is nothing that word to do in a music dictionary. However, he came down the law. This Russian folk musical instrument, similar in essence to castanets. It consists of two plain wooden spoons. They hit one of the other convex sides, and the result is a clear, ringing sound. Earlier to the handles of the spoons tied small bells.
