The Boomophone™ XTS Whack Pack combines the popular 8-note C Major
Diatonic Scale Boomwhackers set with the new XyloTote™ Tube Holder
and Boomwhacker Whacker™ Mallets, the color-coded Whack-a-Doodle-Doo!
Children’s Songbook and an Octavator™ Tube Cap. Its suggested retail
is $49.98. The XyloTote Tube Holder is the key new piece. Designed
primarily for the 8-note diatonic set, the holder enables the tubes
to be mounted side-by-side so that they can be played like a xylophone
with the included mallets. It rolls up for storage or transport.
It features a strap-like handle, loops to hold the mallets and a
pouch for the songbook. Two or more can be combined end to end for
a wider range of play. The holder and mallets are also available
as separate items for those who already have Boomwhackers Tubes
or want to add to the playable range.
