If you count semitones, probably the trombone, slide guitar, or something similar, since there's technically an infinite amount of notes one could hit.

programmable pianos.

every instrument can be played at any speed. the limiting factor is the person playing them. A 'perfect' player could get to any speed on any instrument.

you have a point, so in that case also all the bow instruments(violins, cello's, viola's etc..) are like that too

Yeah but the slide is an incredible buden and makes it really hard to play notes clean with any kind of speed.

Which is why it isn't used in Bebop. Cuz Bebop is incredibly high speed tempo wise.

semitones are only one fret though, so anyone can play them. anything smaller than a semitone is flat/sharp, and therefore (in my view) shouldn't count.

and a grand piano would be among the fastest, when dropped from a high building.

There are microtonal scales you know? notes between the 'usual' ones. They're no less notes than the accepted western 12 repeating semitones.

my bad then! i know that ragas often have different actual note values, but figured we were looking at the standard western chromatic scale...
