Bucket Boom Boom

by Austin, 8th grade.
 
The sound is produced by the string vibrating and the bucket magnifies the sound for resonance. Pluck the string and change the pitch by moving the stick back and forth. Stretching the string makes the pitch go higher.
 
I took a bucket and drilled a hole in the center of the bottom. Then I put a string and put it through the hole. Tie a knot big enough on the inside of the bucket so the string doesn’t come out. I found a stick and drilled a hole at the top so I could put the other end of the string through it. Then tie another knot so the string doesn’t come out of the stick. Change the pitch by moving the stick back and forth stretching the string.
