More stupid instruments

Pretty poor picture
The thing on top is a trombone made out of ABS plumbimg pipe and an oil funnel. It sounde awful.


The thing on the right is an er-hu made out of a Mortons salt box and a length of 1/2" doweling.

The thing next to it is a similar stringed instrument, made out of a piece of drainpipe and coffee creamer lid.

The black thing in the middle is a one string viola, or cello or something, made out of PVC with a Tasters Choice coffee jar lid as a sound board.

The other one is a bassoon made out of ABS with a soda straw reed. Amazingly enough, it does not sound entirely hideous.

It's not always a good idea to go to McClendons hardware store when you are hungry.

My apologies to those who want to take music seriously.

The bassoon made from ABS and stuff, when you demonstrated to me sounded pretty grand. I christened it "The Flatuola", because it sounds like a 300 lb. obese senior trying to get rid of the pain in his colon. I think it would make a great gag gift, and personally can not see why it should not be mass produced and sold at LOVERS, formally LOVER'S PACKAGE.
