Non-traditional Instruments

A buddy of mine from high school built his own instrument. Local news heard about it and brought him on. Pretty cool. It doesn't have a name yet but is basically just a bunch of PVC pipes.



I thought this could be a fun thread about people making music with non-traditional instruments.

fascinating.
My first job as a carpenter's apprentice I worked with an ol' timer that played the hand saw.
He said it had to be a Disston brand.

@panzade,
Awesome. The only people I've seen make a saw sing were old white guys with beards in Branson, not an emo Asian. They all seem to wear plaid pants though...

@roger,
I think it's nontraditional Roger, as is the washboard.
