The name of my instrument is PbandJ. PbandJ stands for pluck, bow, and jam. It also spells band in the middle of the P and J. My instrument belongs to the strings family because it has strings. The materials I used were wood, guitar strings, pegs, and fasteners to act as fine tuners. I had a lot of help from my family. They were my partners.

How do I play it you ask? I can pluck it, or I can bow it, or I can strike it. By pulling on the pegs you can change the pitch. It may sound a little out of tune but I think it sounds pretty cool.
