This is amazing!

It's interesting to see, which instruments "stick"... there are so many cool, interesting, fun sounding, exquisite musical instruments, and new ones invented all the time. How does an instrument persist? Why did this not get built? - I think some may have to do with culture? - In percussion, all sorts of unusual instruments are used by musicians, because making cool sounds is what it's about. Any "classical" music is about, let's call it, preservation? - I can think of many other ingredients into making an instrument stick. Modern example of an instrument that stuck is of course the electric guitar and its variations.

HEAVENLY! My favorite post yet, Jena! I am a big harpsichord lover and this IS EVEN MORE Seraphonic! (My word for a"angelic.")
