I happend to need a Harmon Mute for band class one day but instead of buying a $40 mute I desided to make my own out of your basic houshold materials.

Step 1: Materials

For this project you need.....

- A big beer can ( I used a Fosters beer can)
- A smaller aluminum can (pepsi can)
- Some electical tape
- a tin snips
- A tape measure
- A pice of pipe around 1/2 inch diameter
- A ping pong ball
- Some duct tape (silver recomended)
- A drill with bit  the same size as your pipe
- Some time
hahaha brilliant!!!!!!!!!!
What size can would I need for a Trombone mute?
