does anyone know for sure what the absolute lowest and highest ranged instruments are? i'm just curious

I just saw a subcontrabass recorder, contrabass flute, contrabass sax, and contra sarrusophone, all very very badass instruments. i was just wondering what the lowest might be

and as for highest, do pinch harmonics on a guitar count?
stuff:
guitar.
amp.
acoustic.

A keyboard can be made to do any pitch, given an appropriate speaker.

I know that's a shitty response, my apologies. :P

There's some huge African instrument that is like 1m long. Maybe that.

I would imagine that a theremin (sp?) might jump into the higher audible ranges.

+1

But, IMO, while electronic insturments are AMAZING, and key to my dream, ideal sound, but I think this is more based around acoustic instruments.


Too bad I know nothing of "uncommon" really high/low instruments.

I prefer those sweet awesome pinch-harmonics that make lower sounds than your guitar can make normally.

An...octocontrabass pinch-harmonic.

Dog whistle? It emits a pitch higher than humans can hear.


Yeah, but it isn't an instrument.

Wrong. If you can make music with it, it's an instrument.

Then also the triangle, and drums aren't instruments.

And all the poser metal kids will claim they can "hear" the dog whistle solo and that it's awesome.
