Percussion Play is a family-run UK business who design and manufacture engaging outdoor musical instruments for all ages and abilities to explore - bringing the joy of playing percussion to the great outdoors.
From giant floor pianos to rainbow xylophones, from tough urban-style drums to gentle, melodic chimes, all our instruments are specifically designed to withstand challenging outdoor environments. We have supplied outdoor musical instruments to projects in school playgrounds, parks, activity trails, family attractions, museums, hospitals, elder centres, seaside piers and even a cruise ship. All our instruments are fully inclusive, accessible and easy to play. No musical knowledge or skill is required in order to create beautiful sounds and all our instruments are orchestrated to be pleasing to the ear for the players and those listening nearby.
Combining sculpture with music makes our instruments ideal for landscape architects, local authorities, playground and garden designers looking for dynamic, interactive playful items which add energy and soul to outdoor spaces. Integrated with local architecture or landscaping they cross the boundaries of usual play equipment and allow music making possible for any member of the public to enjoy.
Constructed of durable, easily cared-for materials to avoid the worst effects of the elements, all instruments are designed to avoid costly or long-term maintenance. Where possible we've designed the instruments to be played simply by using your hands. Where beaters are required, we've engineered them as one complete piece, so the ends do not become separated and they're attached using coated stainless-steel cables. Most of the instruments themselves are made from stainless steel or aluminium with high corrosion resistance, making them outdoor musical instruments which stand out in terms of durability and performance. Instruments are available in a variety of fixings from in-ground to surface or wall, all certificated to EN1176 and come with easy to follow installation instructions, plan and 3D drawings.
With representatives in over 60 countries, Percussion Play is the world’s leading outdoor instrument manufacturer who has built their reputation on the excellence of their service and quality of their musical instruments.
