More about the Thunder drum - painted - 20cm

Hold the instrument with the spring dangling down and shake it from side to side very fast by turning your wrist quickly from side to side. You can stop the sound just by gently holding the spring. Try talking, singing or shouting down into the drum while shaking it - this will produce an echoey voice. 

Put the instrument to your ear and listen - again, you will get an echoey sound. Even better - put one over each ear and just walk slowly around letting the springs slightly jiggle.

If you happen to have something like a trumpet, try putting it over the end of the trumpet and playing into the thunder drum.

Maybe you can tell us some more ways you've used this amazing instrument...?
