What do you have....
I own a music store that's been around for over 30 years, so it wouldn't be a fair contest. We've collected quite a few of the odd and unique over the years, including things like the aforementioned paperclip (contrabass), f trumpet, peck horns, etc. I'll see if I can get some pics up.
I have a bodran. The neighbors love me.
An Irishman walks into a pub with a package under his arm.
The bartender asks, 'What's that?"
"It's 5 lbs. of C4", replies the Irishman.
"Thank God! For a moment there I thought it was a bodran", says the bartender.
here is a few of them
Not pictured: German made fiddle from Mittenwald; T. K. O'Brien dulcimer; Cuenca Spanish made classical guitar; probably some other things I can't think of now.
No, I meant your avatar.
I have worked at a 65 yr old music store for 20 years. It may be more fair than you think.
Here is another.
Eb cornet, John Stratton, 1865, NY.
Played a few of these before(university), just not enough money to own one.
1906 Buescher coronet.
'92 Gibson Les Paul Standard
it's a contrabassoon, not a contrabass.
I have played it with the Portland Symphony a few times.
I see a few Keilworth's a year. Nice horn.
My kid wants a Zakk Wyld Epiphone bad
Ahh. Didn't look too carefully and in the pic it sort of looks like it's all shiny metal. I just sold a Bb Leblanc contrabass clarinet, aka "paperclip" that was in really good shape. Oddly enough, our local high school (300 kids total enrollment) had two of them that hadn't seen use in decades. They traded them in to purchase items more useful to them.
Known as the Toilet tuba for the position in which it's played. Made in Philadelphia in 1876 to commemorate the nations Centennial. They made a set of horns in various sizes. They are extremely rare.
This is the 'baritone' version.
I'll have to get pics of my drum kit up later...
How about an F trumpet?
Or a "peck" horn?
Old piccolo with real ivory headstock.
That's just a few of the oldies and oddities in a little display case. More in the storeroom.
And then there are the stringed things like oud's, tater-bug mandolins, bajo-quinto's, and classics.
