This is an idea and instruction book for making a variety of simple musical instruments and sound-making devices. With few exceptions, the instruments described are not incredibly loud, enabling more people to be involved without overpowering the listener. The low volume also allows for the instruments to be played with singing and chanting.

You can make most of these instruments with hand tools - saws, hammers, chisels, hand drill, screwdriver, file, sandpaper, tape measure, etc. Access to a vice and strong workbench is recommended. If unusual tools or processes are required (e.g., tools for glass cutting), they are mentioned in the text.
