Time to make some percussion instruments.

You and your BOOM boxes.

Extra points if they actually make tiny drum noises when struck with tiny mallets.

According to my percussionist friends, anything is a percussion instrument. So I guess, anything makes a drum noise.

For my part, I am looking for a micro playback/recorder that I can put under a base that will play some short music when you pick up and move a musician figure. Not there yet.

A tiny music player is a brilliant idea!

Search Etsy, and at the end of the year, look for Xmas cards that play "little drummer boy" when you open them.

I saved the tiny musicmaker from a greeting card showing soldiers for many years because it played a little martial marching tune when activated, it was tiny, and it had a very light swinging arm to activate it. I meant to put it into a container holding Napoleonics or AWI figures, but I discarded it before I ever did that. Your idea is better. grin

I haven't found one in a card that is small enough to fit under a 25mm base … yet. Either the armature or a photocel activator would work. I probably need to look for espionage type tech.

My first pick would be my Gnome Wars Austrian bugler converted into a tuba player. Hall of the Mountain King (tuba solo), here we come! Or maybe the Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga.

Talk about unanticipated use cases…. heh.

Hall of the Mountain King (tuba solo)
That would be awesome.

The tune Stewie played would also work. Even just the "falling down" flourish at the end would be fun.
