Percussive oddity.

This strange apparatus appeared on a telephone pole at NE MLK & Hancock:

It has a metal can, a tightly coiled metal spring leading from the can to its backboard, a string with large bells on it, and a wooden stick at the end of the spring.

Hitting the can with the stick didn’t produce much sound, but yanking on the coiled spring and letting its reverberation ring through the can made a pretty amazing sound. Check it out for yourself!
