String Thing by Briadi

My instrument is called Briadi's String Thing. I got my idea from the website that Mrs. M gave us. My instrument is in the string family. Something interesting about this instrument is when you pluck the string it makes a little sound but it hits the ice cream bucket and makes a big noise.

I used these materials to make my instrument: strings, ice cream bucket, a tube and spray paint. I used materials from home and school.

I made my instrument by making a hole in the bottom of the ice cream bucket then I put the tube in the hole and then I cut slots in the top and bottom of the tube and then I put the strings in their slots and spray painted the bucket and used tape. Mrs. M helped me with my instrument the whole way. She helped me by giving me ideas about how to put the strings in and lots more. My biggest problem was how to put the string in the bottom.
