Wak-a-Tubes are brightly coloured percussion instruments made from different lengths of plastic tubing. They’re fun and easy for musicians of all ages to play, a simple and inexpensive introduction to music making. They can be played in a wide variety of ways to create a range of different pitched sounds.
This 30 player classpack includes 27 tubes, a lollipop drum with beater and two jingle sticks (styles may vary). A handy carry bag is also included for easy transport between events and provides simple storage.
Playing Wak-a-Tubes in a group is a great way to learn about teamwork and ensemble musicianship while having lots of fun. Unsurprisingly, this has made them very popular with schools.
As a general rule, the bigger the tube, the lower its pitch. It can be fun to experiment with dynamics and timbre by varying the material the tubes are hit against and the velocity with which they are struck. And don’t worry – they’re virtually indestructible!
Produced in the Percussion Plus workshops in Leicestershire, Wak-a-Tubes are also supplied in multi-use packaging made of 100% recyclable materials, so you know that you’re doing your bit for the planet by buying UK made.
