The bells are made from 16 oz propane tanks with 3/8 bolts welded into the adapters. The free end of the bolt mounts them on 1 x 1/4 flatstock. The tanks were cut above the seam and sixteen chromatic tones from A to C were obtained. They are played with short lengths of 3/16 rod covered at one end by plastic tubing.
