Packing Up For Summer? Don't Forget to Protect Your Instruments!

As the year winds down and summer heats up, are you packing up your instruments for summer storage? Perhaps the floors in your classroom are being redone or construction projects will be taking place. You’ve invested a great deal in your classroom instruments; here’s a few ways to keep them in tip top shape so they enjoy summer vacation as much as you will!

Basic Beat Orff Dust CoversOur Basic Beat Orff Dust Covers fit right over the top of your Orff Xylophones and Metallophones. The three sizes are color coded for ease of use, and will protect your Soprano, Alto/Tenor, and Bass instruments. No need to take off bars; just cover them up and they will be well-protected from dirt and dust.

Need to take the bars off for summer storage? Check out our Basic Beat Bar Bags. Each pair holds all of the bars of a single instrument. Simply slide the bars into the pockets, roll up the bag, and tie it shut. Your bars will be safe and protected and can easily be stored together in a tote or box.

Need some drum storage as well? Basic Beat Tube Drum bags come in 3 sizes and perfectly fit 10”, 12”, and 14” Tubanos or other tube-shaped drums. The lightly padded ends of the bags will protect your drum heads, and the off-set handles will make carrying the drums easier as you move them to a safe place for the summer.

We’ve all learned to stock up on Sunscreen to protect ourselves from the summer elements; this year be sure your instruments are protected from their summer elements as well!
