It is so beautiful and relaxing!
Reminds me of a beautiful Chinese bird singing

I am not sure if snare could be counted as an instrument. But now its like strings of a guitar. - zxm

I play it in band it's awesome to keep beats

84 Dhol

A punjabi classical instrument

85 Guzheng

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

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

90 Keytar

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

91 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.

Try marching the cymbals! It's so much fun!

BASH BASH That's all I hear from them

98 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

99 Berimbau

How on earth is this is at the bottom this should be number ONE

100 Nose Whistle

The best instrument in the world.
