These colorful percussion tubes range in length from 30 cm to 61 cm (12" to 24") and provide a full octave (that's eight) of consecutive notes. You can compose a simple tune by yourself, play together with your family, or drum with an entire class of kids! Experiment with the science of sound! Recommended for children ages 4 and up.
- 8 Colorful music tubes
How Does It Work?
Simply tap a tube on just about anything (tables, chairs, the floor or even another tube) and you're making music! The BoomWhackers have a "sweet spot" for the best tone, usually a few inches from the end of the tube. You can even lower the tone by blocking the end of a tube.
What Does It Teach?
BoomWhackers provide a simple way to introduce kids to the science behind sound. Learn about the musical scale and how the tone of many musical instruments is controlled by their size. Discover the joy of making chords and melodies with your friends!
- Great tool for teaching about sound. Review by Debbie
I used the boomwhackers in a physics class for 3rd and 4th graders. We were studying sound. It was a good way to demonstrate how the length of the tubes or sound waves effected the sound each tube made. The students made up various rhythms and songs. Fun day. (Posted on 5/5/15)
