The sound quality is important, and no detail is too small. For the left mallet, we designed the rubber that would optimize the note tones along the left side. Then we did the same for the right mallet. Both mallets slip easily into handy holders so they don’t have to touch the ground or dangle from the instrument. Flat bars make up the 15 major notes on this instrument, but the sound of each still resounds. Play a favorite tune or put your musical creativity together with a buddy’s and start creating your own opus.

Outdoor Musical Instruments Made to Lastmallets

The mallets are a critical part of these melodic instruments, so we manufactured them to stay in place. Attached to the instrument by coated steel cable, the mallets cannot be pulled out or cut off ensuring they are there anytime aspiring musicians want to play.

drumsThree Ways to Drum

Nobody can resist a good drum, let alone three. Our high-quality drum skins are made from polycarbonate, sanded on the underside for a professional finish. They’ve been tested to stand up to the rigors of play and temperature extremes, yet still deliver solid tones for years into the future. While they’re intended to be played with hands, we know children…sticks are fine, too. All three are fully accessible and inclusive, welcoming the whole community to join in on the drum jam.
