Calypso Steel drum – $89.90 Diatonically tuned, this steel drum is a good intro to steel drum music. Smaller than a traditional “steel pan” drum, it can be played by young kids as well.

Congas – $599 If you’re looking for a fun gift for a percussionist, but can’t have a full set of drums in the living room, these congas are a fun instrument for young and old. They can even be played in an apartment if you use a Tala Wand (a type of birch or bamboo drum stick) without losing your lease.

A couple of pair of bongos – $25.99 If dad loves music and likes to party, buy 2-3 pairs of bongos and break them out when guests come over. You don’t have to be an expert to play the bongos and it’s easy for a party to get swinging when several people are playing at once.

QwikTime Metronome – $16.95 If the musical dad on your list does not have a metronome, we’ve found a perfect one that is inexpensive, easy-to-use, portable, and has a pleasant woodblock sound.  The price at $14.95 can’t be beat.

Klutz book – $0.01 How to Play the Harmonica – Anyone can play the harmonica, which is a fun instrument for accompanying little ones while they sing. Like everything worth doing, it just takes practice. The klutz book takes the mystery out of it and includes a good intro-quality instrument.
