Salvage Super Sounds Week 10 highlights an instrument called 'Marching Men,' a small instrument that delivers a big sound in stark contrast to our quiet city streets. If you're at home right now, look around you to see what instruments you can make from regular household items. Can you make a pots, pans, and mixing [...]
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, [...]
After a week of rain from Storm Dennis, we're itching for spring. Or, as Sean Connery would call it, 'shpring.' So, today we're focusing on windchimes.

The Junkman plays a refrigerator shelf and a table leg, proving that musical instruments are all around us so long as we use some ingenuity. Have you found any household items that make an interesting sound?
In The Junkman's second episode of Salvage Super Sounds, he introduces us to a mark tree which, in typical Junk Music style, is fashioned from scraps of plumbing pipe. What do you have lying around the house that could be used to create a mark tree?
Introducing a new Junk Music feature: Salvage Super Sounds! Each week, The Junkman will demonstrate an item from his vast collection of reused/repurposed musical instruments. This week's item is a pair of artillery shells from the Croatian War of Independence.
