In this article, we investigate the sound produced by a hex nut when it is rolled into a balloon. We analyse both the frequency components of the sound as well as the amplitude components and theoretically explain these sounds. We also investigate different rubber balloons as well as different experimental setups, studying which one helps to describe the different observed phenomenon the best.
