You are an odd fellow, but I must say... you throw a swell shindig.
The world is full of musical instruments. This thread is about some of them.

What's your favorite hilarious musical instrument? I'm pretty sure mine is the cuica, AKA "overstimulated monkey noise" in samba tunes. Check out these bosses fist their monkey boxes like champs:

Of course, the slide whistle is a perennial favorite:

But now let's hear from the deadliest whistle of all: the HUMAN whistle:

i actually made an effortpost about the glass armonica not too long ago. it went nowhere because no one owns one and no one listens to classical music anymore, but i don't care because i think it's a cool instrument with a cool story.

This is so drat cool, I remember taking a slightly younger friend of mine many years ago to their first real metal concert and we went to see Children of Bodom who I had seen a couple of times before because they were really good back then.

One of the opening bands was Eluveitie and at one point they had like a dozen people on stage and one was playing a hurdy gurdy (among other times in the set) and my friend was asking me "what the hell is she playing?"

Me being a musician and my friend not, and not even having a full understanding of exactly how it works myself, I tried explaining "well so you turn this crank, that moves this wheel that a bunch of strings are hooked up to, then you press some keys, and all that poo poo is strapped on to some wood, and, look man it's loving cool but the best I can do is give you guitar or bass lessons if you want" lol.

Any instrument that drones is amazing and brings a tear of joy to my eye
This includes the much maligned bagpipes (every variety! Irish! Slavic! Whatever!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVz1sjr1N6c

Hurdy Gurdy is atmospheric as heck, nothing funny about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmKgLeQZTuA

Didgeridoo, haunting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9g592I-p-dc

The sitar is almost too much beauty for me to handle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTPxqUtlLdo

Name me a single drone instrument that isn't amazing.

Instruments that drone annoy the BAJEEPERS out of me. But to each his own, I guess.

Not necessarily a funny instrument, but a funny name: Sackbutt.

It has both sack and butt right there in the name!

Ruth Wellcome is my very favorite zitherist, and I'll fight you if you disagree! (In the nicest possible way, of course.)
