Apparently this guy put a guitar pickup and string inside a foam block and used it to trigger a snare drum patch.

That was cool. Its fun to think how many instruments could be made in an afternoon from your local Lowes(hardware warehouse store).

I made a Native American Flute from PVC pipe and it works great and is waterproof. Bamboo is actually cheaper, easier to work with, and tastes better [:)]

With modern electronics, it would seem easy to make a stand up bass guitar with standard stuff stocked at Lowes. A drum kit (and chimes of various kinds) would be easy. A "cigar box" kind of guitar could be done but would be harder. With modern pick ups and a computer, volume and projection are less of a concern.

A modern day "junk band" would be cool [8D]
