So, does anybody know any very odd instruments that have been featured in any kind of recording/live performance/etc.
This also includes instruments that are quite odd for a certain genre/artist/band

Mine would be the Whamola, although hearing a Hurdy Gurdy in Keep The Car Running is quite funny to see (but that's Arcade Fire for ya )


I'm not sure how many times this thread has been done before but I'd like to see if there are any artists that employ odd/eclectic line-ups for their music.

EDIT: Could you post any song/artist names whom use these instruments?

Probably a tromboon - a cross between a trombone and a bassoon, designed to give all the disadvantages of both.

Jackyl used a chainsaw as an instrument on the song The Lumberjack.

The entire Spider line sounds like a trashcan getting humped by a fire truck while it's in the garbage disposal unit.

Hurdy Gurdy


OT: That strohviolin sounds cool. It's like a steampunk guitar and amp

Also, theremin. I know it's pretty well-known but wow.

The stroh violin is quite weird sounding. The saw aswell

These are all in Tom Waits songs, i think there's one where he played the 'dumpsteritar' which is a dumpster he put piano strings on.



Came in here to say this, I saw A Hawk & A Hacksaw a few weeks ago and they used a Stroh violin on stage. Definitely added an interesting sound.
