Your ticket to non-stop fun! Whack just about anything and - BOOM! - you're making music! The C Major Bass Diatonic Set consists of 7 tuned tubes: Bass C, D, E, F, G, A and B. These bass tubes add a whole new dimension to the sound and musical possibilities. Combine with the standard Diatonic Set to form two full diatonic octaves. Basic instructions included. For ages 3 to 103.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
" My 7-year-old daughter has autism. Two things about her: (1) she's very musical, (2) she has little interest in playing with other people. The boomwhackers are a fun, goofy way for her to make music, and they encourage music-based social play in a unique way, since two people can play the same instrument together without being right in each other's space; social play can start as simply as one person whacking a beat with one tube and another joining the beat with a harmonizing tube, then both parties improvising with a second tube in their other hand. The results are addictively interesting, like a drum circle. You can play actual melodies with the boomwhackers, and sometimes we do (and this REQUIRES a high level of cooperation and attending to cues, while giving great rewards for success). But the beauty of these is that you don't HAVE to play a real song to have a blast. One person, two people, or seven people together can have a great time with these, cooperating just a little OR working together with total discipline and precision.
Another advantage: they're great for extra-bouncy high-energy kids who wouldn't sit still to play a xylophone/keyboard/etc. Music can be a standing-up whole-body experience with these. Terrific at a backyard party (we've played many a -happy birthday to you- with our set)."
I'm returning them (too big)
Posted 9/13/2011 by Amy Stankus
I should have checked the measurements before I ordered. These are too long for my child (or me) to really play. They also don't sound as bassy as I was hoping. I am going to return them and instead get the Octavator Caps that lower the pitch of REGULAR boomwhackers - of which we now have two sets, which we play with a lot.
