Picture of DIY Trumpet

Weekend. My kid is coming to my office-lab (that's what I called my half office, half laboratory.) When he comes, he always want something new. "Let's make something LOUD," he said. Well, thinking for a moment, I remembered the old days when I was in high school. We used to make trumpets for the basketball games. Well, it is loud enough, and will be much louder when there are dozens.

Ah.. seems like I make a new abbreviation for "Materials and Tools" hehe..

We used to make it from a film canisters, but seems like this kind of canisters are rare these days. But don't you worry because I have found the replacement for that film canister.

Materials :

  • A balloon.
  • A 1/2" pvc pipe.
  • A supplement canister.

Tools :

  • Glue gun.
  • Drill.
  • Cutter.
  • Files (optional).

Never heard of kazoo before, but after googling I hear a nice trumpet sound with less power (hum). Yes we use the balloon as a membrane to produce the sound. Try it and see how loud you can go ;)
