OKay, now I’m going to show you one that’s
made out of bamboo. Look at this thing. This has a really nice sound too. This one is made
by drying out the bamboo and poking holes through all the dividing sections that normally
would close that up in there. Poking holes through all those, putting the beans in, and
then the beans go from one section to the next, draping down and making a beautiful
sound as it goes. Listen. Pretty nice, huh? Go the other way. See, you can keep it going
indefinitely if you use the turning motion that I explained earlier and levering back
and forth. Watch. (Audio demo) We can go on for days like that. But you don’t have to
worry; you won’t drive your neighbors crazy with this instrument.

    Funny to me how intently he stares at it while turning it, as if intense concentration pays a part in this.

    That rainmaker is technically a crotal bell. See Fadul's Encyclopedia of Bells.
