- Length of each tube determines tube’s resonance pitch. The longer the tube the lower the pitch. Tone produced by whacking a tube reveals its note of resonance. Resonance pitch can be changed by attaching the plastic end-cap.

Copper pipes chime when hit (hang by loop and tap with hard object). Pipes are identical in size and composition, and are therefore identical in pitch.
To see how temperature affects pitch, dip one pipe in liquid nitrogen and cool for 1 minute. Tap both pipes to hear differences in pitch. Caution: DO NOT TOUCH COLD PIPE WITH BARE HANDS. USE CRYO GLOVES.
