Indian Drum

by Alex B.

I made my instrument by getting a 3 gallon ice cream tub. I put a piece of felt on the top of the drum (on the side that was open). I taped the felt on. I taped it again to give the drum a solid covering. I painted it all black. On Monday, Mrs. Rexford told us that a resonator was a hollow object that amplified a sound. The resonator is the 3 gallon tub. The tone quality is a deep "Boom". The pitch is low on the drum. The volume can be both loud and soft. It depends on how hard you hit it.
