I made my instrument with copper pipes, wood, a lampshade, wire, and beads.  I made it by cutting pipes and then drilling holes in them then hanging the pipes by the lampshade. 

Then I took a bigger pipe in the middle to hold up the lampshade.  Then I put the wood at the bottom to hold it up straight.  After that I put the beaded necklace around the big pipe.  Then I took a nail and put some duct tape on it.

To play my instrument you take the nail and bang all the pipes.  Also if you take the nail and rub it up against the beads it makes a sound.  After that you bang the lampshade as a drum.  Also you can bang the middle pipe.
