Step 1: Materials
- Beach sand (if you don´t live close to a beach, this can be a good excuse for a excursion)
- Streching nylon or any elastic (mine was bought in Cambridge, UK and is from www.pepperell.com)
Only one scissor will be enough to make all this.
Step 2: Make Holes
Take taker not to make a big hole, it just have to be enough to pass the wire or string.
Step 3: Put De String
Pass both ends and tye a knot that will be inside the egg (thus hidden forever)
Step 4: Fill With Sand
The quantity and grain size must be chosen by trail and error, looking for what suits your style and that can be controllable. The main problem is to make it controllable since too much sand can cause a short sound, and too little can make it sound too late.
Practice with the instrument and play with the quantity of sand.
