    The conga drum is derived from African drums made of hollowed out logs. This is one of my favorite drums!!!!! It sounds like a deep ”bong…” but with a slight ”tada…” to it. thanks for reading!!! Queenbee

    I think that a really cool instrument that isn’t usually in a American concerts is a harpsicord. It is a cross between a piano and a harp. It is really cool.

    I saw that in Japan people don’t use instruments. They used ipads insted. They had screens look like the instrument that they were playing and the strikes strums or pushes buttions to make music. Example of a fake singer too Hastumi Miku.

    I think that the most interesting instrument is the violin… I know that it isn’t unique but it is amazing how people have to turn the bow to different angles to have the sound come out the right way… haveing the sound strong

    The Musical Saw has to be one of the most interesting, rare instruments! The player draws a a bow across the back edge of the saw to create a howeling sound :)

    The musical instrument I found that you don’t normally see in America is the Bagpipes. They originates from Scottland (go figure!) and I think they have a lot of ”quirkyness” to them, they are very unique.

    I used to play the violin and it was a little fun but I liked how it came from Europe!

    The instrument I have taken a liking too is one that looks amazingly similar to the flute. Its a woodwind instrument and it was a custom of the Modern Egyptians , it’s called the Arghul. :)

    I found that the ANcient Egyptians had things called Sistrums that are similar to maracas in that when you shake them there are there little symbols that hit together and make noise (look for the pic below) very cool!

    I found a 12-neck guitar. It’s a fully working stratocaster by Japanese artist Yoshihiko Satoh. This is interesting because I’m learning how to play guitar.

    The Glass Armonica! Benjamin Franklin created this after seeing someone play music on some wine glasses. He finished his new invention in 1762 (the glass armonica). It is played by touching the edge of the glass, while its spinning, with damp fingers. I really want to play one now… here’s a link to someone playing it.

    I just looked up the kithara (also cithara). It’s an ancient Greek instrument, part of the lyre family, and is made up of strings connected to a sound box. The kithara is played with a pick in the right hand, while the left hand dampens the strings that aren’t a part of that note.

    I studied the piano. I love the piano and think it’s one of the most beautiful sounding instruments. :)

    • The challenge was to find one you might not find in a typical American orchestra or band. If you want to use the piano for the challenge, tell us why you think it’s extra special – why do you think it’s one of the most beautiful sounding instruments?
