This instrument is built from around 50 PVC sewer pipes fixed on a wooden frame. Its story is very simple.
We had a lot of pipes left after the bathroom remodelling. At some point we’ve realized that when we hit the longer ones we get low sounds, and when we hit the short ones, we get high sounds. We were struck by the idea: "what if we tuned some of those pipes?"

A few days later, we got together and set to work. Initially, we focused on building a frame, which was supposed to put the pipes in order and also prevent the whole construction from falling apart while continuous hitting. To build it we have used wooden planks and some wooden waste we had at our disposal – elements of some old furniture, cabinets, beds, etc….
