Everyone loves big drums and there are some big ones in here! They can be stacked on top of each other and so take up less space than you’d expect. Suitable for anyone, and great for playing outdoors and up to 15 children can explore on their own as lots of beaters, beautiful egg shakers and a full set of 30 Music Cards. (Basket not included). For 3 years and over.
N.B. For Early Years settings please note:
A. Our products are musical instruments, not toys, and should always be used under the supervision of responsible educationalists and carers and not left with children under 3 years of age to play with by themselves.
B. Please follow the simple “Good Practice” guidelines set out in the “Traditionally” section below.
For SEN settings: please put a note with your order to indicate that it’s needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.
Please note that for reasons of stock availability we may need to make the occasional substitution of the more minor pack components. If so, we’ll always ensure suitability/equivalence and we’ll always clear any significant changes with you in advance.
We’ve discovered that these large drums together with the 6 egg shakers are the most robust of all our instruments. The drums are almost indestructible – they can take children sitting on them, rolling on them, dropping them, hitting then with wooden spoons (the spoons tend to break!) and even standing on them (though we’d discourage this!). The eggs are also surprisingly robust and can withstand gentle-ish rolling on the ground and hard shaking (but not throwing). These two instruments go together remarkably well and are a great contrast with each other – the low sound of these large furry double-ended drums with the high persistent sound of the small shaker,s which are all the same size. They also help to encourage extremes of characters to get involved with one another and with the instruments – extrovert, loud children choosing the drums and introvert, shy children choosing the shakers – but not always, so allow them to choose and you might be surprised who chooses what! There are 9 beaters with this kit which will enable up to 15 children to play together but it’s ideal for a smaller group. You will also often find that one child in particular will like to arrange the drums around herself and play all of them with two beaters. The 9 beaters will also end up getting sorted and arranged, role-played and use-changed! This kit is particularly good for outdoor music-making – just leave the kit there for children to find and explore for themselves.
We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:
Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.
Orders over 5kg – Courier, next working day delivery. Most orders are sent this way.
Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.
- Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
- Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
- For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.
Orders weighing less than 1kg and not too bulky – Post Office Airmail. This would include books and smaller percussion instruments.
Orders weighing more than about 1kg and large orders – international courier or pallet service. We’ll obtain competitive quotes and agree these with you in advance.
Please note that it’s fine to go ahead and place your international order prior to confirming shipping costs, and that there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you. Payment for international orders, including shipping costs, is required before dispatch of the goods.
Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.
In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.
Similarly, if an instrument develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.
But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to: Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL
We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.
