I am coming at you from the Crossing church in Las Vegas to show you a few homemade percussion instruments I built and currently use when I play on the worship team. They are listed below:

Pipe Shaker: I got a PVC trap pipe and attached two egg shakers on either end. Then I filled up the inside of the pipe with rice and beans. This has a soft sound and good for quiet moments or for shaking in small bible study environments.

Foot powered floor tambourine: I built this so I could play a tamborine on the main beats while playing other instruments with my hands. I took a piece of plywood and bolted in a stake bracket from Home Depot. The bracket holds a drumstick embedded into a PVC cross joint. The drumstick pivots and hits the tambourine when my foot presses down on the other side. I coated the whole plywood piece with black silicone to blend in with the stage and provide a non slip surface since I stand on this to keep it from sliding across the floor.

ABS Rainstick: Started with a 3 foot long piece of ABS black pipe (3 inch diameter) and some white endcaps. Then I bought about 120 two inch long pan head sheet metal screws. I drilled them into the pipe about one inch apart in a helical pattern. Then I filled it with black beans and some white rice. The ABS plastic provides a louder sound, so this is good to have on stage in a large room. A larger diameter pipe will provide a louder sound. This rainstick has a nice bright sound.
