Of course, we’ve all played some bass impromptu on an elongated rubber band before, haven’t we? [Nicolas bras] found that the ultimate music rubber band is bungee jumping rope, and used seven of them to make a bass zither that can be plucked or struck with a drumstick. Be sure to view it in the build / demo video after the break.
You can call it a hardware store hacker. So far, this is not his first instrumental competitive performance; In fact, for the past 15 years, he has been making instruments from PVC and other common items.
In this version, one less common thing is the big speaker [Nicolas], which is used to bind bungee jumping ropes. He also made custom bridges for bungee jumping, with triangular wood at the top, making them look like rows of small houses.
To actually play the song, [Nicolas] arranged the townhouse in a 2-point bridge system, using two note strings, which sounds good between bridge and bungee hook, but not between bridge. Generally speaking, no matter how he plays, the zither has a beautiful and mellow sound. We may need to string one of them ourselves.
Not alone? Then you may be satisfied with Nicolas’s PVC pipe, which can play “popcorn” perfectly.
