Suzuki’s music pads challenge the imagination of the young and the young at heart. One octave of tuned C-C, coloured music pads encourages experimentation and delights players. You can stand on them, sit on them, use your hands, elbows or knees. They may be used as an easy introduction to music, for play or even as an exercise tool.
The sound is made by pushing the middle of the music pad with the hands or feet (avoid striking with any object which could cause damage). The instrument makes the sound when air is pushed through the reeds causing them to vibrate. No batteries or power required. The sound varies with the amount of pressure being applied to the music pad. 40kg (88lbs) maximum weight for standing on them. One foot, hands and elbows can be used by anyone.
Use on a dry, flat surface and keep the music pads dry. Please use soft-soled shoes or no shoes when using the music pads. Do not throw them around, use sharp objects on them or put foreign objects or liquids inside the music pads as this will damage the reeds inside.
Clean the pads with a slightly damp soft cloth. Avoid using alcohol thinner or any petro-chemical solution. Store in a climate controlled area away from any direct heat source.
Each pad is 11.81” (30cm) in diameter and 1.65” (4.2cm) thick. The 2 C notes (low and high) are red, D is yellow, E is green, F is
orange, G is blue, A is purple and B is white.
