12 Weird Musical Instruments (Part 2 of 4)

#4: Contrabass Serpent

One of the rarest instruments in the world, the serpent is an early relative of the tuba, yet its major difference is that it usually made out of wood.


#5: Hurdy-Gurdy

This instrument is similar to a fiddle, but rather than using a bow, the strings are placed on a wheel and hand-cranked, giving it a sandy Middle-eastern vibe.


#6: Jal Tarang

Originating in India, this instrument is so easy to make you could do it at home. It’s made of porcelain bowls filled with water, and played with bamboo sticks.


Part 3 coming tomorrow!
