Description

Set of 7 bass diatonic Boomwhackers. This set of Boomwhackers extends your range - middle C comes with the regular diatonic set (item 200346, available separately), and this set continues down 7 more notes to C below middle C. These plastic percussion tubes are played by (gently!) striking almost anything - a table, a chair, the floor, your thigh or hand, the side of your shoe... whatever! Different surfaces can produce different sounds, but always the same musical pitch. Includes 7 pitches, starting at C below middle C; a different color is used for each pitch:  

low C (red)
D (orange)
E (yellow)
F (light green)
G (aqua)
A (violet)
B (fuchsia)  

Tubes range in length from 24" - 48".

  • Age: 3 years and older

These ended up being way too large to carry around to my groups - they are as tall as some of my clients!

I already know this tubes, and I use them in a theater play, but I lost some of them. I need to replace them.

I have very few orff instruments and so I use these to supplement those parts so my kids do not have to wait in line as long.

boomwhackers are the best tool for general music at the middle school level hands down.

I have never bought boom wackers. I want to use them for a class of 20 students to have them make music. What should I buy? sally

BEST ANSWER: It really depends on if you want all of the students to be playing boomwhackers at the same time or if you plan to integrate them with other instruments. If you want all of the students to be playing at once - and you have 20 students - I would suggest you purchase at least 2 of the 8 piece C to C set and one of the Bass Diatonic set. If you can afford 3 of the 8 piece set that will give you more flexibility. I used my boomwhackers in an outdoor concert we did at my school last spring. Each of the small groups had to create a piece specific for the environment they chose to work in - for example I had one group that chose to create and perform a piece for the play structure, another group chose to work with the recycling center dumpsters and another chose to take the boomwhackers onto our nature trail to create a boomwhacker piece using the trees and ground to play against. Our audience members where given a map of where all the pieces were located on campus and enjoyed moving from one piece to another. Peggy Benkeser from Cliff Valley School in Atlanta
