Hit-drums

Black plastic tubes that can be bolted to Oak rails. Another heavy-duty design, and another bass part to a Musical Play area, best played with hard beaters. The tubes are 100mm in diameter, and are brightened up with highlights of paint and colour.

Slit-tubes

75mm diameter aluminium tubes, with slits at each end. The length of these slits defines each note. The slit-tubes come in sets of 5 or 7 (with either 10 notes or 14 notes, in total). This is a very unusual instrument, supplied in an Oak Frame, with the vibration of each tube carrying right through the instrument, creating a ‘wall of sound’ – rather like an orchestral gong. Also a part of the 6-sided Musical Pergola.
