Phil Dadson / Bart Hopkin - Slap Tubes and other Plosive Aerophones
They can be simple to make, yet they are fully musical and they sound great. This is the category of musical instruments known as plosive aerophones. The category includes the end-struck tubes sometimes called slap tubes, as well as many other instrument types. They’re good for kids, requiring only modest tools and skills and having real educational value. For others, young or old, they provide one of the most rewarding instrument-making projects you’re likely to find.
