Introduction: Using Old Drum Cymbals to Play Music From the Rain
I found a set of cymbals at the thrift store for $10. Hmmm... Let's see... we could attach them to a doorbell hammer... That would be fun the first two or three times someone rang the bell. I decided to let the rain dripping off my roof to play a tune on them.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- A few cymbals
- Threaded rod
- Nuts and washers
- Bolt cutters
Step 2: Put It Together
This isn't rocket science. It isn't even model rocket science. Just put a nut on the threaded rod, a washer, the cymbal, another washer and the final nut. I'm embarrassed that you even made me type that all out. Sheesh.
Step 3: Stick It in the Ground
Now jab the threaded rod into the earth where thick drops of rain are likely to drop. If you don't have roof gutters this works great.
