Diatonic Wak a Tubes Set of 8


In stock


The most popular instrument in our Colour and Play range is our diatonic Wak! a Tubes. These brightly coloured, versatile hollow tubes can be played with a beater, struck against a hard surface or tapped against each other to create different sounds and a simple harmony. The tubes are ideal for playing individually or together in groups and are a simple and inexpensive way to introduce children to music with them being able to create tunes in minutes. Tubes encourage team building, group participation, improved eye contact and co-ordination. They are lightweight so easily transportable and when played, the tubes are relatively quiet so ideal for playing in places which need minimal noise disruption. All in all they are simple and inexpensive way to create music as well as being enormous fun and always prove a best seller!

The colours of these Wak! a Tubes match with the other products in our Colour & Play range, including the Chime Bar set PP935 and Combi Bells PP275, which all follow ChromaPlay, a colour method in which colour coded notes correspond to specific notes of the music. This method allows players who cannot read music to play along without difficulty and for the instruments in this range to be played together with ease. The Wak! a Tune book PP799 provides colour coded sheet music that can be played with this entire range.

The PP790 can be accompanied by the PP791, set of 5 chromatic notes, to make a fully chromatic set. A Wak! a Rap PP797 and Wak! a Tube stand PP798-1 is also available for storage and carrying and Wak! a Caps PP792 can be attached to the tube to change the pitch of the note down an octave.
