“Easy to set up and even easier to play these percussion tubes let everyone instantly be part of the music.”
Crazy, colorful, and practical, Boomwhackers are tuned percussion tubes that are the ideal option when time and/or budget are of concern. These instruments, although simple at first glance, are made from special grade plastic for acoustic properties and cut to specific lengths so that each produces a precise musical note when hit.

Drums In Paradise Boomwhacker Sessions make the perfect companion for short and cost effective teambuilding programs, or can be combined with other entertainment to create a high-energy interactive party show.
