TIN CAN TOM-TOMS
Tom-toms of different sizes and tones are easily made by
stretching inner tube drumheads over the open ends of tin
cans. Use small vegetable cans and the larger ones in which
fruits, fruit juices and jams are put up.
Remove the ends with one of the twisting kind of can open-
ers. They turn down the sharp edge and make a smooth rim
that will not cut your fingers or the rubber. The drumheads
are held in place with pieces of string wound around the can
as shown in the drawing. The tom-toms can be played either
with drumsticks or your fingers.
