Musical instruments are all around us as witnessed in this week's clip wherein The Junkman uses a set of plastic shipping blocks to create beautiful sounds. (And yes, Mrs Junkman knows better than to throw anything in the recycling bin before letting her husband listen to it first!)
Have some jar lids or bottle tops handy? Join The Junkman as he shows you how to play those tops like castanets. It's so easy, you may even have time to learn the flamenco. Olé!
After a brief break wherein he completed some new and exciting projects (Which we hope to share at a later date), The Junkman is back for another round of Salvage Super Sounds! This time he demonstrates how a truck tail light acts as a drum. Stay safe, friends!

In this short and sweet video for Salvage Super Sounds Week Nine, The Junkman plays a shaker/drum made from a chocolate box and rice. Where did The Junkman find this chocolate box? Again, just one of the many sacrifices he's willing to make for his craft. Enjoy and stay safe, everyone. [...]
We like cold beverages. We like cold beverages. . . and the containers that hold them. In Salvage Super Sounds Week 8, The Junkman plays a nifty glass Spanish liqueur bottle and a plastic pitcher, both quite empty, of course. Ah, the sacrifices an artist must make for their craft.
The Junkman goes metal this week on Salvage Super Sounds! We're not talking heavy metal, hair metal, speed metal, or death metal so do NOT, by any means, get your iron Maiden tshirt out of storage (Spoiler: Your spouse/SO has probably gotten rid of it anyway) This is all about metal curtain rods, discs, hoops, [...]
