Wak-a-Tubes are brightly coloured percussion instruments made from different lengths of plastic tubing.
They’re fun and easy for musicians of all ages to play, a simple and inexpensive introduction to music making.
They can be played in a wide variety of ways to create a range of different pitched sounds.
Wak-a-Tubes are also supplied in multi-use packaging made of 100% recyclable materials, so you know that you’re doing your bit for the planet by buying UK made.
Who Waks? Playing Wak-a-Tubes in a group is a great way to learn about teamwork and ensemble musicianship while having lots of fun.
Unsurprisingly, this has made them very popular with schools.
They are also widely used in corporate team building exercises and events due to the universal appeal of bright colours and noise! The simple playing technique breaks down any barriers to creativity and levels the playing field, allowing the least and most musically inclined to come together and have a wak.
How do you Wak? Simply whack them against a hard surface, hit them against each other, or lay them out on a flat surface and strike them with beaters.
For the best tone, strike the playing surface a few inches from the end of the tube.
Why not try grabbing a couple of tubes and waking them together to produce chords? As a rule, the bigger the tube, the lower its pitch.
It can be fun to experiment with dynamics and timbre by varying the material the tubes are hit against, and the velocity with which they are struck.
And don’t worry – they’re virtually indestructible!
