"Tom-Tom" by Katie "



My instrument is a tom-tom. My dad helped me. I decorated it, held the pots together, and put the string through. My dad put the material on it, and helped string it. We worked on it for 3 days.

To produce sound I tap it. The dynamics change when I tap harder or softer. The timbre of my instrument sounds like the sound you hear when you knock on a hollow door.
