Delightful, wouldn't you say?
A Woodblock might just be perfect for the tiny person in your life. Children are always looking for something to hit, beat or tap… they love the sounds around them. So, rather than sacrifice your pans, table tops - or whatever else they can get their hands on. Woodblocks are also perfect for any percussionist looking to increase their tonal range - why not invest in a Woodblock? The Wikipedia definition is as follows: “The woodblock is a small slit drum made from a single piece of wood and used as a percussion instrument <...> The orchestral woodblock instrument of the West is generally made from teak or another hardwood. The dimensions of this instrument vary, although it is either a rectangular or cylindrical block of wood with one or sometimes two longitudinal cavities. It is played by striking it with a stick, which produces a sharp crack. Alternatively, a rounder mallet, soft or hard, may be used, which produces a deeper-pitched and fuller 'knocking' sound.”If you are struggling to decide which starter percussion instrument you want to purchase, don't worry!
