  • air horns, composed of a pressurized air source coupled to a horn, designed to create an extremely loud noise
  • fireworks, such as firecrackers, bottle rockets, bang snaps and others
  • party horns, paper tubes often flattened and rolled into a coil, which unrolls when blown into, producing a horn-like noise
  • ratchets, orchestral musical instruments played by percussionists. See also derkach and rapach.
  • sirens
  • vuvuzelas, plastic horns that produce a loud monotone note
  • the head joint of recorders
  • couesnophones
  • Groan Tubes
  • moo boxes
  • Pop Toobs
  • whirly tubes
  • firecrackers

Noisemakers are popular with children as toy musical instruments. They can be perfectly included in loud rhythm bands and in the music education for young children.
