Whack-a Boom!!™ Boomwhackers® Card Games
Play 20+ games from the double-deck combinations of color and rhythm cards! Add a boom to recreational and educational music-making. Perfect for families, classrooms, and large or small groups. The color cards use the Chroma-Notes colors that match our popular C Major Diatonic Scale Set of Boomwhackers.

Package contains 100 cards and instruction booklet.



Octavator ™ Tube Caps
Put one of these caps on the end of a Boomwhackers Tube and presto- boomo!, you’ve lowered the tone by an octave!  (That’s 8 notes if you’re counting.)

Play the tubes as usual or hold them vertically and tap on the floor, etc., as a "stamping" tube.

Placing Tube Caps on the higher octave tubes, creates the same tones as the bass octave tubes; Placing them on the bass octave tubes, takes it down another octave, making a 3-octave range possible.

  Xylotote™ Tube Holder
A whole new way to play your Boomwhackers Tuned Percussion Tubes - like a xylophone!
Used as a carrier; it holds 8 Boomwhackers Musical Tubes, a pair of Boomwhacker Whacker™ Mallets, and a Whack-a-Doodle-Doo! Songbook.  Two or more can be combined end to end for a wider range of play.
  Made of cotton, elastic, and hook-and-loop fasteners. *Tubes, mallets and songbook sold separately.

  Boomwhacker Whacker Mallets
Use with the Tube Holder or to make it easier to play the shorter Tubes of the Treble Extension Set.  Includes one pair of 11-inch wooden mallets with one-inch black rubber heads.

Whack-A-Doodle-Doo! Songbook
Our Whack-a-Doodle-Doo! Songbook contains children's songs which have the musical notes color-coded to match the Boomwhackers Tubes.
