This is the best and most relaxing instrument in the world!

This should be higher than, let's say, the viola.

Makes the prettiest sound in the world. I have never played it but I have heard it. It's an instrument from South America and used in the soundtrack of the video game "The Last Of Us"


Armenian wind instrument that has a beautiful ancient desert quality about it.

Delightful like a ukulele but also has a substantial amount of volume produced by its ten strings. This South American string instrument allows for accompaniment and virtuosity.

Pretty much like a trumpet...but better.


Why are four versions of the guitar in the top 25 and the theremin is 83?!

Come on. What's cooler than a theramin?!
The theramin is really obscure and sounds like an alien spaceship!
Played with two antennas, one for pitch and one for volume, by raising your hands up and down the stems.
Look one up on YouTube, it's really entertaining to watch/listen to! :D
