Palm Pipes

Palm Pipes!

To make these, use 1/2” cold water pvc pipes. One 10 ft. pipe should be enough for an entire 2-octave set. Be sure to “measure twice, cut once!” The slightest variations in length will alter the pitch. You can label each one with a color or marker and then coat with either clear nail polish or spray paint to make more permanent.
