Improved version of the classic south american instrument. Easy to play, easy on the eye, easy on the ear and affordable too. Made from a length of bamboo, pierced through with an evenly spaced spiral of bamboo pegs, to make the enclosed pices of stone fall slowly when the rainstick is turned upside down. The longer the rainstick, the longer the “rain” shower that results. This one is the shortest at just 20cm (8 inches) long and works well as a shaker too.

N.B. 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.

Product Information

What's included

To play as a shaker hold in one or both hands and rock back and forth. To play as a rainstick hold in both hands and slowly tip the rainstick upside down. The slower you do the tipping, the longer the “rain” will last. Try rotating the rainstick as you tip it as this can help to dislodge extra bits of “rain”.

Delivery

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:

UK Locations

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.

Please note:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

International Locations

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.

Returns

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.

Everything was delivered fine and extremely quickly. The early years children love the instruments, we have our own Forest School band and they work nicely with our forest xylophone and other homemade wooden instruments we have hanging in our trees.
Thank you very much, fantastic products at great prices.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for your very speedy delivery and excellent instruments. I am so pleased with them and look forward to seeing the children use them at the workshop on Sunday.

My order arrived promptly & safely.
I’m delighted with the instruments & the children enjoy exploring making music with them.

Nirosha Dawsey

Very pleased with your instruments and the speed of delivery. They’ve proved popular with my learning disabled groups, particularly the Shaman Drum and the Gamelans. Will definitely order more when funds permit.

Jean Honour

We love the dream drum! (amazing how this instrument can silence a class of 30 noisy kids in a heart beat!)
