The sound is created by the vibration of the molecules inside the actual pipes, which is what the xylophones are made out of.  The pitch changes when you hit different keys because each key is a different size and thus creates a different sound.  The instument is played by being hit with a mallet.  i plan to create the xylophone out of either PBC piping or metal pipes.  The  have them laying on a wood structure that makes them easy to play.
