Basic Beat BBS12 12" Combination Rhythm Sticks

Basic Beat

Item No. 201357
Alt. Part # BBS12
UPC Code 881970004010

As an early childhood teacher, the 8 inch rhythm sticks are perfect for my students little hands.  As an education consultant, I recommend the 12 inch as a better fit for elementary aged students.  Either size is the perfect tool for practicing many different rhythmic activities.  I also love that there is one ridged and one smooth stick per set making them easy for my young students to identify; we can also explore the different sounds that are made by the various textures.  -Jenny

  • General
    Actually, I don´t know how and when to use it. I bought it because is cheap and curious.
  • It's perfect
    This is perfect for my older elementary students. They are developing better team building as we work on dynamics, coordination, and different rhythms.
  • Super!
    Between two teaching positions, I have access to 55 pairs of these sticks. Only one has chipped, and it's just a small piece that's fallen off. My only complaint would be that the black "Basic Beat" logo is getting smeary after the sticks have been used quite a bit. That said, it's purely a cosmetic issue.
