A Trumpet Made Of Bullets And The Kids Who Inspired It Take Hope Around The Country

posted in: Music News | 0

The Instrument of Hope is lacquered in black except for the shiny brass parts, which are clear lacquered. They include the lead pipe, which is made from bullets set end to end and drilled out so that air can flow through to make it a playable instrument. The tops of the three buttons are made of the sawn-off casing end caps or rims.

The Instrument of Hope, a trumpet made partly of bullets and inspired by the survivors of the 2018 Parkland, Fla., mass shooting, is touring the country to promote healing.
