How my instrument was made: First I made the stand, then I got pipes. After that I cut them, drilled them, and tied them on.

How my instrument makes sound: The volume changes if you hit it harder. Pitch changes because the pipes are different sizes.

How my instrument was made: I had a shoe box and put rocks in it. Then I covered it with duct tape.

How my instrument makes sound: The harder you shake it, the louder the volume is. The softer you shake it, the softer the volume is.
