Thumpers Musically Tuned Tubes

2 total reviews

Kids will love making music with this set of Thumpers™ Percussion Tubes! Thumpers are musically tuned tubes that resonate musical notes when "thumped" against just about anything...a table, your leg, your other hand. The cool, colorful tubes each create a different note on the music scale, allowing a wide variety of sounds to be played. Simply "thump" the soft tubes against any surface to start making music; the tubes can even be combined to create chords! This 8-note set features notes in the popular C Major Diatonic Scale Set (meaning no sharps or flats), with each tube being clearly marked for which note it produces. Set also includes six well-known 'play by color' songs to get anyone started on the road to music.


  • Contains 8 tubes that each make the sound of one note on the C Major diatonic scale: Middle C, D, E, F, G, A, B and Treble C.
  • Comes with 6 color-coded songs to get started making music right away.
  • Up to 8 people can make music together in a fun group setting.
  • Tubes can be thumped against almost anything to get the tone.
  • Colorful and fun way to engage anyone in making music.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Tubes measure from 12 to 24 inches long.

    Unexpectedly fun

    Great way to visualize the difference in notes. I have been using these to teach the concept of sound as a wave and having students be able to “thump” the tubes and feel the vibrations has been very useful. The tones are audible, but gentle enough that the occasional sour note with a group of kids won’t kill you 😂. Do not require a hard surface- I use cushions with aurally sensitive/ neurodivergent students to eliminate secondary noise when striking. Easy to clean/ sanitize. Note that these are larger than they look- little hands can hold one at a time.
