From Whacky Music

Boomwhackers® are tuned percussion tubes made from lightweight plastic that are played by striking your leg, hand, a table, the floor, just about anything! The neat thing is that whatever surface you use will produce the same musical pitch, though depending on the surface you strike them on, the tone and volume will vary. Boomwhackers® come in five different combinations. The Pentatonic set includes six pitches: C', D', E', G', A', C". The Diatonic set includes eight pitches: C', D', E', F', G', A', B', C". The Bass Diatonic set includes seven pitches: C to B. You can also order Chromatics and Bass Chromatics tubes to enhance and fill out the repertoire of your Boomwhackers®. The regular octave ranges in length from about 12" to 24". The bass octave continues to a little over 48". Each tube is labeled by note. All sets come with instructions and a reusable mesh tote bag.

Handy Octavator™ Tube Caps: When placed on the end of any of your Boomwhackers®, these nifty little caps will lower the tone by one octave! You can play the tubes as usual or hold them vertically and tap on the floor as a "stamping" tube. Octavator™ Tube Caps can be purchased in packs of eight.

All Boomwhackers® are proudly made in the U.S.A.

We've included some sample Boomwhacker® songs below so you can hear these fun instruments in action.
