Decisions, Decisions--Which tubes??
From my friends at Whacky Music, prior to their selling out to Rhythm Band, I received the following information:
"The Pentatonic set is used primarily for rhythmic activities and games as all of the notes, played in any combination, sound good together...ergo, instant music. The Diatonic set is typically used for melodic activities (songs)....Of our 22 publications, the 3-volume Tube Time series was written for the Pentatonic set and is intended for use with younger kids. The 3-volume Totally Tubular series contains some activities which utilize the Pentatonic set, but was actually written for the Diatonic set.
When facilitating a Boomwhacker activity with a large group of people (who may or may not be musically inclined) and with limited time, the pentatonic scale/set is often preferred because music can be created instantly using rhythm."
For group activities, see the tab at the top right side of this page which will link to a guide on group use of Boomwhackers®.
NOTE THAT THE "ULTIMATE PACK" AND THE "ALMOST ULTIMATE PACK" CAN NOT BE DELIVERED TO A PO BOX DUE TO THE SIZE AND COST OF SHIPPING. IF YOU CAN PROVIDE A BUSINESS DELIVERY ADDRESS THAT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AS IT REDUCES MY COSTS. Even using UPS it generally runs between $30 and $50 to send these packages. The PO would be over $75 in most instances--they really don't like large packages!!
