Found this in an antique store the other day for around 600 USD. The guy in the store had no idea what it was since he consigned it on that shelf, but I think it's some kind of kora or ngoni from Africa. The thing that makes this one really unique for me is that there's a skin pulled over the gourd body similarly to a banjo (which I've never seen on a harplike instrument such as this) and that there's some amazing carving on the neck especially. I did play it a little bit, but I can't say much because about half of the strings weren't strung in a playable way and I wasn't brave enough to tune an instrument like that to my liking.

EDIT: Just found this, too. Maybe we can get LiL to help us make a cello?

It was only a matter of time . I really considered putting it in the OP.

Luray Caverns Stalacpipe Organ

Some douchebag explaining it


An actual performance (the natural sounds of the cave really make it imo)


I wonder if you were to create acoustic resonance with this instrument a la Alvin Lucier's "I Am Sitting In a Room" (which is also a cool and weird instrument if you think about it), if it would cause the stalactites to shatter.

This one has been making the rounds. I wonder if it's as limited as it looks, because it doesn't look like the performer has too much control over what happens tbh.

The first time I saw a picture of one of those guitars, I thought it was just an unplayable piece of artwork. The guy who makes them also has a Tele, Les Paul, and acoustic style which also have the same sort of distorted look but are playable.
