I agree with the other 5 star reviewers.

I just love pretty much everything Bart Hopkin does, his books and music. He is a very interesting chappie.

................

[this part of the "review" I'm just copying+pasting from my other reviews on Bart Hopkin books, since I think I have pretty much the same sentiment for all of his books]

This book is great, and opens up a lot of possibilities for new sounds. It is very imaginative!
All books by Bart Hopkin that I own are excellent. They are all 5 star books for me. They all open up beautiful and strange new possibilities for sounds.
The ones I own are
- Musical Instrument design
- Experimental Musical Instruments back issues on CD
- Funny Noises for the Connoisseur
- Plosives and Aerophones
- Getting a bigger sound
- Nice Noise [written with another author, Yuri Landman]
- I own a few of Bart's albums

I think the only book I don't own is the "Wind Chimes" one, since I'm not really a "wind chime" kind of guy, but I'm beginning to wonder if maybe I should just grab it anyway, in case it is even a fraction as interesting as the other books. I don't know, though.... wind chimes..... I might give it a go.....

Thanks for putting this stuff together!

What Bart Hopkin doesn't know about making instruments from junk/recycled/inexpensive materials isn't worth knowing. Fantastic book, full of designs for wonderful and easy-to-build musical instruments, that are inexpensive and enormous fun to play (no need for expensive tools - you've probably got everything you need already in your garage or shed).

And it's not just designs, either: it gives you all the information you need to know for you to make your own original instruments of this type. If you've seen the instruments played by The Blue Man Group and Snubby-J and similar musicians, that's what this book is all about.

Terrible title, though, Bart! Seriously, if I was trying to write a title that would baffle most people and put them off buying the book I would have difficulty coming up with a worse one than "Slap Tubes and other Plosive Aerophones". OK, yes the instruments in this book are technically plosive aerophones, but who apart from a few esoteric instrument buffs knows that? You can't even tell from the title that this book is about making musical instruments.

Buy it anyway! The title sucks, but the book is brilliant.

This book is a fabulous resource for anyone wanting to build their own slap tubes but doesn't have the natural ear, technical expertise, or math skills to figure out exactly how on their own. Inside the book you will find a pretty full and concise history of the instrument, explanations of different types of slap tubes and how they work, and then awesome and specific plans on how to make a handful of really cool simple instruments. Once you've got that down, you can use the tables included to build bigger or more elaborate contraptions. How there aren't more books like this one, I couldn't tell you. But either way this is an unbelievable resource!

"Slap Tubes and Other Plosive Aerophones" is a slim volume, but full of excellent, practical information. By the author of "Musical Instrument Design", Bart Hopkin, this book expands on a topic made popular by Blue Man Group and others.

"Slap Tubes" tells you how to approximate the tube lengths, how to tune, and how to mount the tubes to make a very useable instrument. The materials used to make the tubes (generally plain old PVC pipe) are inexpensive enough to encourage experimentation, and the book gives you the information to experiment with.

If you enjoy playing with percussion and would like to make an instrument to play by itself or in an ensemble, give this book a try!

There is more related information in Hopkin's "Musical Instrument Design." I was expecting more advanced information, rather than a specialized volume with a few mentions of the Blue Man Group. I've had the "Musical Instrument Design" book for at least 15 years
