FAQ

Q: How loud are your rainsticks?


A: The amaranth and poppy seed-filled rainsticks are quiet and calm. Glass beads rainsticks are loud and can be used in performance as they cut through other sounds. Exact dB levels for the rainsticks are noted in their detailed descriptions.

Q: How long does it take to build 1 rainstick?


A: We’re always striving for efficiency without sacrificing artistry, so the making process is still a work in progress. 4-5 hours per rainstick is a reasonable approximation.

Q: Can they really stand up on their own? Do they fall over?


A: Yes, they are made to stand up on their own on a smooth level surface. On carpet and less hard surfaces, they should lean against something sturdy. They are top-heavy once flipped and gradually get a lower center of gravity as it rains. In order to prevent an accidental fall, ensure the rainstick is well-balanced at all times.

Q: Can I eat the amaranth/poppy seeds contained in the rainstick? You say they’re organic.


A: Do not eat any of the contents of the rainsticks. While the food product was produced organically, the rainstick building process has rendered them not food safe.
