Well, now you can live your dream with your very own Seuss-a-phone.
My apologies to the estate of the late Theodore Geisel. But since I am not making any money on this, and maybe this Instructable will sell a few of his books, I hope you will forgive me for using the name...
Step 1: Gather your materials
1. One trumpet mouthpiece. I selected the Belmonte 7c $19.99, as it is the most inexpensive around. If you want to add some color, Kelly Mouthpieces makes Lexan transparent mouthpieces in many colors and they are less than $20 on-line.
Also available on eBay and at garage sales.
2. 10' of copper coolant tubing 1/2 inch OD (outside diameter) $19.99. This will fit the trumpet mouthpiece perfectly. Available at any hardware store.
3. One Plews LubriMatic Utility Funnel $4.95. A galvanized metal funnel for oil and hydraulic fluid. The metal carries the harmonic resonance better than polypropylene, has a gooseneck for visual effect, and, coincidentally, fits over the copper tubing perfectly. I bought this at Home Depot in the hardware department.
Step 2: Mouthpiece
Step 3: The Bell
Add a bell by sticking the Plews LubriMatic Utility Funnel on the opposite end of the tubing as the mouthpiece.
