The Mean Green Blowing Machine

by Austin R.



My uncle got me a piece of PVC pipe and fittings that I needed to make my instrument. My Dad helped me put the fittings on the piece of PVC pipe. I put some tape over the ends of the pipe then my Dad and I sprayed the pipe green. After the paint was dry my Dad helped me cut some pieces of paper to make the stripes. Then I taped the paper on the pipe and we sprayed the stripes. It took us about two hours to make the instrument.


The sound is produced by blowing into the end of the pipe.


The DYNAMICS is changed by blowing hard or soft. The PITCH of the instrument is high or low depending on how hard or soft you blow. The TIMBRE of the instrument is smooth tones.
