TAMBURO MUTO, thought up by Gabriele Malfer

Description:

Percussion instrument, membranofono, with a drumhead of cardboard and paper

Tools:

pencil

scissors

a hot-glue gun

Materials:

2 pieces of bamboo cane

gauze

string

glue stick

hot-glue

vinavil glue (a brand name)

Procedure:

I made a cylinder out of cardboard and closed one end with a circle made of cardboard that the teacher attached with hot-glue. Then I covered it with blue tissue paper. I decorated it with a bit of crepe paper cut out in a diamond shape that I attached with vinavil glue. I made four cords by twisting the string and used them to decorate it. I added a piece of string to hold the drum. With adhesive ribbon I embellished the drum head. At home with my father I made two beaters using bamboo cane and I covered both ends with gauze using scotch tape.
