Escape the Sales and Join the #OptOutside Movement This Black Friday

Our love of the great outdoors is something that has driven us for over 12 years. It’s why we do what we do: design outdoor musical instruments that enable more of you to enjoy music-making outside in the fresh air and elements.

Many families spend the day after Thanksgiving starting their holiday shopping, waking up at the crack of dawn to nab deals, and standing in long lines. While there's nothing wrong with that, we think you might enjoy doing something a bit more creative and memorable this year. And in these days of screens and computer games, the chance to spend quality time together often isn’t even on the menu for many busy families. But kids, adults, people, don’t want or need more stuff, more presents, more screens, and screen-time, they want more joy, more connection, more family time, time with friends, time outdoors. Time.

We value the great outdoors and all the positive physical and mental wellbeing it provides. If the past 18 months has taught us anything, it’s that being outside in nature has never been more important. More of us than ever before value the freedom and fresh air that being outside brings.

Are you looking for ways to support the #OptOutside movement with us? Why not get outside and enjoy a walk with your family and friends and make a little music together in your local music park. The positive effects of bonding through playing music together, listening to each other, having fun, being outdoors, and being creative - cannot be underestimated. It is so important that we spend time with the people we love - and what better way to do so than by being outdoors, breathing in the fresh air, and making beautiful sounds together in an open, familiar, and non-judgemental space. It allows us to feel and express love, joy, and connection with those around us; to feel that we are a part of something bigger than just ourselves: a part of a family ensemble!

Opt Outside this Black Friday.
