Make Your Own Wacky Instruments

This is a book of illustrated instructions for making musical instruments for schools, parades and just for fun. About 50 instruments are described in detail, ranging from the very popular 'rubber glove bassoons' and easily constructed 'parade J-pipes' to the more technical 'bass multiboing' and 'dingbox'.

J pipes make great parade instruments.
