I actually just bought a Moroccan Oud off Craigslist after a buddy of mine from Egypt offered to teach me how to play

I made myself a canjo. Dont know if they are rare but no I know has one. Its a fun little instrument to play. Very simple and easy. But its great because I built it start to finish. Makes it that much cooler.

makes me think of a cross between rabab (because of the 1 string), dulcimer (because of the frets), and cigar-box guitar (because of the can)

i can play the autoharp (aka chromaharp) but i'm not sure how "rare" it is, i also have a "pitched" vacuum tube i created for musical effects (if you send me a pm i'll tell you how to do this properly), i play the vibraslap they're not very rare but hard to find in real life, agogo bell.

i'm thinking about making some harps but i'd need to buy some tuning heads, some wood, and a finish plus i need to decide what kind of strings i'd want for it how many etc... truthfully when you think about designing a custom harp is actually quite easy unlike a guitar or other instrument.

i'm really wanting an Erhu (whiny chinese fiddle), Suling (easy to play indonesian flute 14"), an accordion with keys not buttons, a portable organ (say one cheap on ebay but i lost the auction)., and hundreds of other instruments.

one of my frens had one of these (veena/venu - something like a sitar but it's a Carnatic, not a Hindustani classical instrument) - I used to play it a lot but wasn't very good at it - i did a pretty good version of The Smiths' Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now on it in a school concert when I was 15, but only one or two in the audience was actually mesmerised by my playing and singing
