Here is a site that tells you how to make them. Warning, the PVC pipe is very dangerous to your lungs. Make sure you use protective equipment when cutting the pipe!
Today's video is of Blue Man Group playing pipes. The pipes used in the video are the same kind of PVC pipe you will make your Boom Pipes from, but they are played differently by Blue Man Group. A couple things are worth noting in the video.
- These pipes can stand up to abuse!
- They can be tuned pretty well, notice how the band is in tune with the pipes. Precision is not as necessary with the longer length tube.
