Pipes were made of hollow stems in different sizes and strapped together to make an instrument called the Pan Pipes. The pipe organ was invented when someone decided to play a set of pan pipes with a keyboard instead of blowing into each pipe. The pipes were placed into holes on a box called a wind chest.
