Carrot clarinet | Linsey Pollak | TEDxSydney

I think this is remarkable. Using a carrot, drill bit and guide to mark the finger holes Linsey Pollak creates, in front of the audience and in a few minutes, a clarinet ‘body’ to which he adds a saxophone mouthpiece and what looks like a plastic kitchen funnel – and then plays it! What really surprised me was that it’s in tune (I suppose the finger hole guide helps here) and that it sounded pleasant.
