The Steel Pipe Chimes
 
The name of our instrument is the “Steel Pipe Chimes.”

The materials we used are wood, paper, steel, string, a Sharpie and glue.

Our instrument is in the percussion family.

The way our instrument produces sound is when we hit a plastic-handled screwdriver against the steel pipes. When this strikes the steel pipes, the sound produced depends on the length of the pipe. The shorter the pipe the higher the pitch. The longer the pipe the lower the pitch.

A few songs we could play are “Hole in the Wall”, “Jingle Bells”, and “ Deck the Halls”.
