The Soccer Ball Drum

The project I made is the Prayer Drum. My Dad helped me by drilling and sawing. I used a Folgers container. My Dad sawed it about half way, and drilled 2 holes on both sides. I twisted a handle on the bottom. Two strings came from the holes. I tied 2 mini soccer balls to the string. I decorated it with construction paper. It took about and hour.

Sound is produced by twisting the handle and the balls hit the drum. I you want it to be loud you twist harder, if soft twist lightly. There can't be pitch because you can't get a drum to go high and low. It sounds like hitting a piece of plastic.
