The Blue Man Group may have put PVC pipe instruments on the map, but a growing number of creative individuals with musically inclined minds are proving that you don’t have to go Blue just to rock out on these unorthodox devices.
Young musicians like Kent Jenkins demonstrate that it’s not only possible to build your own homemade PVC pipe instruments, but that it’s also possible (with the right combination of carefully placed pipes) to play a wide variety of popular songs on them.
With that kind of versatility, it’s not hard to imagine that professionally manufactured versions of these awesome devices could find their way to major instrument retailers in the near future.
