Whether it's musical or not may be a matter of opinion... It makes a not unpleasant sorta clunking sound. The tubes are made of Super Sculpey which I rolled out and wrapped around a dowel and stamped with metal stamps, then put in the oven, then forgot about them while I watched a movie, so instead of baking at 275 degrees for 10 minutes they baked for about two hours, BUT they came out fine, in fact they turned a wonderful dark brown, which I painted over with acrylics (Titanium white and gold) just enough to enhance the stamp design. They are tied to a deer rib, also painted, with sewing thread. This was a trip to photograph! Talk about a moving target.
