Valerie Bassett - Bassett Associates Landscape Architecture Inc. Calgary, Canada

We used Percussion Play Instruments in a very special musical garden we were designing in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Robin was outstanding to deal with along with the rest of the team at Percussion Play. From early design to installation the customer service was spot on. In fact we needed a piece to be shipped during installation. It was ordered on Friday and we had it on site Tuesday, even over a holiday weekend and across the pond! We are thrilled with the quality of the instruments. We had professional musicians play them at the opening and the sound and quality was amazing!! No matter who’s playing the instruments they sound wonderful and draw people into the park both young and old. They are just fun! We live in a winter city and these instruments give opportunity to bring life to the park year-round. We are thrilled we chose Percussion Play instruments for our park and user love them.

Lupin Keir Isle of Bute, Scotland

Choosing the instruments for Calum's Cabin has undoubtedly been the best thing about the last few months. The musical instruments from Percussion Play - bought with the money which so many people generously donated in Donald's memory - are beautiful. The inscription on the drum is perfect. Caroline tells me that when families arrive the first thing they do is run outside to play with them. Donald would have loved that.

Paul Trapido of Paul Trapido Interpretive Design Wilmington, Delaware, USA

To help revitalize a park in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, the Rotary Club of Wilmington asked me to create a group of outdoor education al play stations for children. Given the 24/7 unattended urban location, durability had to be a prime consideration, but cost and aesthetics were also important. Finding suitable musical instruments for this tough environment was a real challenge—until I discovered Percussion Play. Their sophisticated design, high quality of materials, and wide range of instrument choices far exceeded anything else I had found; the cost, including shipping from overseas, was very competitive; and communicating with Percussion Play’s very cooperative staff was a pleasure. The installation is a big hit with the park’s nearby schoolchildren and their teachers, local office workers, neighborhood residents, and the Rotary Club members who sponsored the project. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Percussion Play’s instruments again.
