Hubcap-Popcan Drum

by Deonta S.

My instrument is called the "Hubcap-Popcan Drum". I got the idea for making my instrument by looking around for things that make noise. My instrument belongs to the percussion family. One interesting thing about it is that I found my hubcap in the street.

To make my instrument I used the following materials: a hub cap, four pop cans, and water. I put the hub cap on the table and four pop cans around it. I filled the pop can up with different amounts of water. The I hit it with two wooden sticks.

I did the instrument by myself. The biggest problem was getting the hub cap out of the street.
