Sound It Out, an organization which "brings together professional musicians to work alongside local participants of different ages, experience and ability," has asked celebrities to tamper with tambourines to create "tamperines" for their charity. A few Harry Potter actors have created tamperines: Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), and Emma Thompson (Professor Trewlawney). Stephen Fry, who read the Harry Potter audiobooks in the UK, has also participated.

The tamperines will be auctioned on eBay May 16th through May 27th and they will be exhibited in Birmingham. For more information follow the Sound It Out tamperine Twitter account here.

It’s a nice idea, but I thought the tambourines were supposed to have been ‘tampered with’! These have just been nicely signed and decorated. I was picturing strange noise-making additions….

I think I like Robbie’s best although I do like Emma Thompson’s piglet, it’s rather sweet.

I don’t really get what they mean by ‘tamper’…
