Musical stock grid in Mitchell, outback Queensland

Last year, a musical stock grid and booming drum were built on the banks of the Maranoa River, below the swimming pool. This is a fun instrument designed for use by both adults and children.

When newly installed, the range of notes and variety of tunes able to be played, using two mallets, was considerable, and the tone was pleasing.

Unfortunately, the notes and tone have recently been spoiled by sand within the metal tubing, therefore, the instrument badly needs an overhaul.

It is, however, a lovely idea to have a musical instrument out of doors and available for everyone to play.
