Dear Alan, Your Foster's Lagerphone looks so ethnic and traditional. I, an ignorant American who has never been to Oz (but wants to go someday) made mine out of a broomstick. To give it more ring, I attached a cross-bar onto which I could nail even more beer bottle caps, making it look sortof like a beer crucifix. I have a rubber chair leg cap on the bottom to give it bounce, and use a bar-stool rung as a beater. I like the back-beat effect I can get by striking and bouncing in counterpoint. I cheated, though; I collected all the beer bottle caps from our Flamingo Party one year and used them; having a fairly low alcohol tolerance myself, it would have taken me forever on my three-beer-a-night limit...Ours is a North American microbrew lagerphone; no Budweiser allowed! My one big number is to play along with my husband's cowboy band when they do "Lazy Harry's" (alright, so they let a few sheep-boy songs sneak into their repertoire); lagerphones being extremely rare in our part of the world, I believe I am probably the best female virtuoso lagerphonist on the East Coast!
