Play & Park Structures Music Makers introduce whimsical instruments with playful and surprisingly authentic sounds to the outdoor play environment. Each instrument is designed to generate a unique sound and inspire children to create their very own compositions on the playground.

Deep Kettle Drum
The Deep Kettle Drum produces two deep, resonating sounds. A deep bass sound can be achieved by striking the drum in the middle and an open sound is achieved by striking the drum closer to the edge.
Drums are percussion instruments that can be tapped with fingers, or struck with an open hand. Children can create a steady beat by tapping Drum Line with their hands, drumming with their fingertips, or banging with cupped hands.
The Tuba Talk creates a loud powerful sound on the playground. Children can talk, sing or hum into the smaller opening and listen to their voice as it is amplified to make music.
The clear, rich sound of a whistle echoes across the playground. A short push & pull creates a quick sharp sound, while a full extension of the plunger creates a sound that is deeper and richer in tone and resonates longer.
The Rain Wheel can be either turned or shaken, creating a sound that imitates rain. Children can also tap the wheel to make a more controlled sound or create percussive rhythms.
Rattle & Ring
This unique combination of bells and scraper creates the perfect variety of sounds. Each bell has its own distinct pitch and the scraper creates a raspy tone when the raised grooves are scraped.
Music Makers Clusters
Music Makers Clusters are also available as a freestanding addition to your playground. Take a look at the options shown or let one of our expert designers create a custom design just for you. The Music Makers Quartet, Marching Band, and Orchestra are great musical additions to your playground that accommodate multiple children, are ADA accessible, and do not require impact attenuating surfacing.
