Percussion Packs – We get asked A LOT – what’s the difference? which would you recommend? what’s more value for money? what’s your most popular pack? So we thought it might just be necassary to write this blog, answering all the questions we’ve received so far.

A-Star Percussion is a market leading percussion brand and the manufacturer of numerous percussion packs great for all occasions whether that be at home, in school or part of your own sensory group/young child music group. It’s bright colours, variety and affordability make this brand so appealing. We must note, A-Star Percussion is recommended for ages 3+.

First up is the smaller percussion packs, we’d recommend these for at home use, within small music groups or sensory classes. They give a wide variety of sounds all stored neatly away in a bag rather than a large plastic box. These individual bags are perfect for children discovering music and new sounds. Below you’ll see the AP0011, AP0012, AP0016 and AP0017 percussion packs.

Larger Percussion Packs

These packs are great for schools, music hubs, library music sessions and so many occasions! They all come with a plastic tub to keep all the instruments safely and neatly stored. Below is the AP0013, AP0014 and AP0015 pack. Most notably, the AP0014 is our best selling pack, and with the variety on offer – it’s easy to see why! Once again, maintaining the bright colours and quality – A-Star is a brand I would truly recommend.
