It is played with cut out flip flops which are used as mallets that play at the base of the pipes.
I made the instrument from 1 1/2 “ PVC pipe. I cut the pipe into 8 pieces. The bottom pipes were cut into 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” pieces. I cut the pipe with a hand saw. The upper pipes were cut in 6”, 12”, 18, and 24” lengths. They were connected by elbows and PVC cement. I used eight elbows to connect the lower and upper pipes. I used a wood base that I drilled holes into and strapped the pipes down with metal straps.
I decorated the pipes by spraying them blue and then dotting them with chrome spray paint.
