Cymbals for a home-made band or to keep time with the
music on the radio can be made from kitchen sauce pot covers
or from the tops of coffee or other tins.
Pot covers are already made as cymbals. They don't have
to have anything done to them. Just get two medium-sized
covers, hold them by the handles, and bang them together.
That's all there is to that.
The other kind of cymbals are made from two covers or tops
of coffee cans. Cut two wooden handles from an old broom or
from 1-inch wooden dowel. Then punch a small nail-hole in the
exact center of each cover. Drive nails through the holes into
the handles and the cymbals are all set and ready to go.
An important point is not to nail the covers tight up against
the handles. Leave a small space between, and you will get a
better and louder noise.
