Introducing the NEW Percussion Plus Slap Percussion - pack of 10 drums

The new Slap Drumming range from Percussion Plus is the perfect way to introduce rhythm and time into your music classes and sessions. Whether it's for a large primary school class, sessions at a local music centre or music therapy for any age, the Slap Drumming range gives you the tools you need for smooth running lessons at any ability level.

Every drum from Percussion Plus produces a big, booming sound and is lots of fun for anyone aged 5+. All materials and hardware have been produced to the highest standard - designed to withstand the trials of regular classroom use, whilst still producing a warm and powerful sound.

Let's play together

With each drum in the pack, you get a great looking high-quality instrument with an innovative 'how to play' guide printed on the drum skin. There are many different techniques used to produce tones on the instruments and any of these can be used on our drums. The printed graphic on the head of the drum offers suggested hand positions for the three main tones: slap, tone, and bass.

With this easy method, teaching and learning is simple and allows you to tailor your class to include visual as well as instructive and aural learners, providing an inclusive way into music making for all levels and abilities.

Fun look, vibrant sound

The colourful pattern wrapped around every drum gives a fun and exciting look, inviting young classes to learn and play. Each has a lightweight body so is easily stored and transported and is supplied with two soft beaters if required.

Although they are lightweight, the build quality is reassuringly sturdy and the sound is just as vibrant and powerful as the colourful patterned exterior!

How to play

The design on each drum head shows examples of hand positions that can be employed to obtain a fabulous variety of tones from the drum, from punchy bass to cracking highs. When you hit the skin, let your hand bounce back allowing the sound to ring.

The Bass

This area in the centre of the drum produces a warm and full tone. Use the beaters or your hands to strike the centre of the drum for a solid rhythmic backing, allowing accents to be created using the tone and slap positions.

The Tone

Straighten all your fingers at the same time. There are numerous hand positions that can be used to create the tone. Think of your hand as a straight extension of your arm, and you should get a solid ‘thud’ sound.

The Slap

This stroke can be played in the same position as the tone, the difference is that one relaxes the hand and arm to hit the drum with a slap-like motion. Spreading your fingers out slightly when they strike the hand drum helps create a crisp clear sound.
