Posted:We had one when I was a kid... its just like a flimsy hollow tube that whistles when you spin it.. sounds kind of eerie, but we never did anything besides spin them around and hit each other with it, so I wouldn't know how to actually *use* them

Posted:hello...*

I've played with them lots in the past... we used to perform with Sarah Hopkins, (the musician who produces them...) When we were performing with her, we would cheat a bit and cover the ends of the ones that were actually being twirled and a couple of other performers would play the music with them using simpler patterns so they could completely control the pitch...

They are definitely heaps of fun for something different & kids do *love* them - we always take a bag of them out for festival workshops... and you can get some yummy kind of strobing illusion under certain types of lighting... and it's delicious twirling in the middle of a kind of musical vortex .:*:. ...you can use them heaps like poi, some moves are a bit different and others impossible but you can work around that for the fun of having the sound...
