      Disambiguation: An organ-like instrument powered by propane gas to produce specific notes
      **

      How It Works: It is powered by propane gas. This gas is then given to the large glass tubes and combusts inside with the help of a flame generator.  This process produces a hydrogen flame that can be used to create specific notes by the tubes. The notes produces vary depending on the sizing of the resonant chamber (diameter and height). The remaining gases exit through the top of the tubes.
