Monster Tubulum

This is a tubulum, or a PVC pipe instrument. Inspired by the Blue Man Group, @thejerrymobile (shown playing the instrument) built a “monster”-sized one with a maze-like structure — 82 45° elbows, 35 90° elbows and 8-10 lengths of PVC — and “foam/duct tape sandwich” drum skins to cover the ends of the pipes. The length of each pipe determines the drum notes.
