91 Keytar

This is basically a guitar and a keyboard combined. How is this not higher? - Rorywilbren

92 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.

93 Maraca V 2 Comments
94 Hand Drums

Love hand drums

95 Soprano Melodica

Melodicas in general are awesome, I mean, Damon Albarn plays one.

99 Theremin

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
