Tuning = C Major Pentatonic (C4 D E G A C5)
Our Forget-Me-Not Petal Drum with vivid-blue aluminum petals with central yellow babel drum will add an appeal to any outdoor area from parks and playgrounds to sensory or healing gardens.
The Forget-Me-Not is linked to memory and remembrance and is the recognized emblem for dementia-friendly environments, communities, and hospitals.
Each ‘Petal Drum’ contains a small (10”/250mm) Babel Drum encased within specific shaped aluminum ‘petals’. The flower heads are securely mounted to a stainless-steel frame or ready to be wall-mounted and come supplied with soft, flexible mallets specifically designed to produce delightfully soft soothing tones.
Adding a hint of happiness to any space, Petal Drums look and sound gorgeous on their own or with any combination of our instruments. A smart choice to quickly and simply add another dynamic to your outdoor space or playground.
- C Major Pentatonic is a very distinct, pleasant-sounding scale that, despite ancient origins, is as fresh and useful in improvisation today as it has ever been
- Unlike the real thing, our Forget-Me-Not Drum will bloom all year
- Soft mallets provided to produce gentle, ethereal sounds
- Forget-Me-Nots are a symbol of faithfulness, true love, and remembrance
Why not create your own Petal Drum arrangement by adding a Sunflower, Poppy, or Daisy, each with its own character and tuning.

We have Soprano Quartet instruments at 5 of our 9 library branches and are hoping to add them to all of our branches. We were looking for something to pull people out onto our outdoor patios in our new buildings, and these have been perfect. The company is great to work with and their products are exceptionally high quality.
Principal Carmen Montero Graf, Ed.D. East Garner Elementary School, Garner, North Carolina
“Our new Music Teacher at East Garner Elementary School will be taking lots of lessons in the playground using the new instruments this year. I’m excited to see if we have any budding musicians and how we can help nurture their talent.”
Meet the Percussion Play App
Music for the Great Outdoors.
Download our App and play our outdoor Akadinda with just your device and fingertips!
The App also includes a comprehensive resource for landscape architects, playground designers, senior living managers, school or nursery leaders, music therapists, or park and recreation professionals. Information contained on the App includes; installation instructions, videos, dimension and plan drawings, product certificates, and lots and lots of images.
Why would you need the App? The app is “native” to the device on which it’s designed to run so it loads and operates faster than a responsive website on the same device. Additionally, once downloaded, the app doesn’t need an Internet connection to work, which means it can always be opened and used. This is handy when you're not connected and want a critical piece of information whilst in the field.
About Percussion Play
Outdoor Musical Instruments should, of course, be heard and an important factor in choosing the right instrument is the sound it makes. By selecting an instrument, you will be able to listen to a sound recording or watch a short video of the instrument being played.
There is no greater joy than finding the right instrument and we hope this makes it easier for you to select the right outdoor musical instrument for you, your school, or your outdoor environment or play area.
Percussion instruments are the oldest type of musical instrument with many different musical personalities. As our Company name implies, all our instruments are true percussion instruments, designed explicitly for permanent outdoor installation.
Constraints of volume and space disappear outdoors and players can experiment and explore the sounds of these large-scale percussion instruments freely.
The term percussion means ‘struck’ and strictly speaking percussion instruments are those that will produce a sound when they are struck with a beater, mallet, or hand. New instruments are always being invented and added to the percussionist’s repertoire – likewise, Percussion Play is always developing and expanding its range of outdoor musical instruments.
For example the recent launch of Inspired By Nature, a collection of nature-themed botanical outdoor musical instruments beginning with musical flowers. So be sure to check back regularly to see what’s new in the world of outdoor percussion!
