Buckeye Banjo

by Joseph V.

How I made it:

I broke off the top of a cigar box and cut a piece off of it. I cut grooves out of it and glued it to my Banjo. Then I cut some wood to put on to it. I painted the cigar box red and the wood gray. Then I screwed them together. Then I took three of my brother's rubber ands to put in the grooves.

How sound is produced:

If you pluck the rubber bands they produce sound. The rubber bands vibrate. The bands make a low pitch sound.
