Noise making device: drum with spring

To obtain incredible noises from this device, simply hold the outside of the cylinder with the spring at the bottom. When you shake the cylinder from side to side, this makes the spring vibrate, the noise from which is amplified by the membrane on one end of the cylinder. This creates noises that rival the sound of loud thunder.
