Step 1: Parts Layout
some pennies (50 - 500 depending on can size)
screwdrivers or other improvised drum sticks
Step 2: Put the Snare in Your Snare Drum
Add the roll of pennies to the top of the tin can
Step 3: Play Drum
yup, it's that easy. Add/subtract pennies to find your sound. Pennies will bounce (that's how the sound is made!) and occasionally fall out. So, everytime you play you might lose a few cents. This might be a good bargaining point when trying to get a paying gig around town.
