Guy playing Mario theme on an 11-string bass

It must take it him 20 minutes to tune that monstrosity.

I've always had a thing for weird/bizarre musical instruments. Does anyone here own something out of the ordinary that makes noise?

Aaaahh, the Chapman Stick, that thing is incredible. You are not alone for those who interests in strange instruments.

Strange instrument mutations are fun, but I like early electronic instruments best.. like the ondioline, ondes martenot, theremin, mellotron, and Raymond Scott's "Electronium". I think the most bizarre is the instrument that uses brain waves to create noise: electrocardiophone

I don't create instruments (no space), but I do read this blog every so often to find out about new noisemakers:

I hit my table with my fist to create a drumming sound. Is that an instrument?

Conceptually, yes. If you are hitting it in a rhythmic fashion, then you are manifesting an element of music.

People actually consider them in a repertoire of music?

Well, if there's a Vienna Vegetable Orchestra, more than likely furniture's being used to please the ear as well.

The concept of an 11-string bass is so very attractive.
Does anyone here own something out of the ordinary that makes noise?
I replicate the sound of a drum set by using a muted bass when I'm bored. Sounds nice. But I miss the sound of a snare and replicating a high hat is very difficult.

Also, a while back, my brother and I set up pots and pans to make a drum set, and it sounded pretty good. The key is to not try and duplicate a real drum set; that's stupid. Using pots and pans for their own unique percussive elements is the only way to do it.

Very few have something worthwhile to do with their life. There's only so much progress reality will allow.

Your attractive master.

If you have an acoustic you can slap the guitar body for a nice percussion effect.
