81 Mellophone

Pretty much like a trumpet...but better.

How is the mellophone bellow the nose whistle


82 Theremin

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

"I'm picking up good vibrations"

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

83 Erhu

I play Erhu and violin, why this far down I don't know. Erhu is hands down the best instrument, however not many people play it.

Damn this is far down the list. I was beginning to think I was going to have to add it myself.

Great instrument. Soft and mournful tone, beautiful.

Upvote... the most beautiful of all.. not popular known in the western world

They are exactly like bongo drums, except they have stands.

Glockenspiels are fun and easy to play, I started out on one before playing the piano.

96 Guiro
97 Charango

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.
