For my monthly home work this time we were asked to create a new musical instrument. The teacher said we should be able to change the pitch and volume of the sound. So after some research I came up with this design. Let me introduce you to THE STRINGO! The best homemade musical instrument designed and build by The Martin 😊

 I used a shoe box (cut our a hole in the centre), two wooden sticks and several rubber strings.Plus sticky paper to decorate the box.

To change the pitch you have to move the wooden sticks outwards or inwards, and to change the volume you simply have to hit the strings hard. Simple! And sounds like real music!
