Subject: What instruments do you have?
From: GUEST,MBSLynne
Date: 27 Feb 05 - 02:42 PM

Just looking round our house I was amazed at the number and variety of different musical instruaments we have. What have you got? We've got: a baby grand piano, two electric guitars and an accoustic, five mandolins, six recorders, a fife, a flute, an oboe, a French horn, a penny whistle, three ocarinas, three didgeridoos, a bodhran, four post horns, a Tibetan dragon horn, various assorted percussion thingies including a triangle, shakey eggs and maracas, two kazoos and a number of odd bits and pieces that have been bought for the kids over the years. There may well be other things I haven't thought of. Phew!

Love Lynne

8 djembe drums {traditional African drums]and
numerous other traditional African drums big and small,a number of balafons {wooden xylophones with gourd resonators],
several sekeres [gourd percussive, shaking instrument with beads strung around the outside; guord rattles, finger pianos, koras [banjo-like instuments]; washboard like instrument from Kenya with beads inside that you shake {and a couple of more such instruments that I don't know the name of]

and
numerous maracas
[all these used for interactive children's presentations; the only ones that I half-way know how to play are the rattles/maracas]

Oh yes, I also have an acoustic guitar in my bedroom closet that once upon a time I thought I would learn how to play.

I never did...

The ones I play: a Bart Reiter "Regent" 5 string banjo, a Saga banjeurine, a Gibson tenor guitar, a Cort 6 string guitar, a Regal dobro, many harmonicas, an Oscar Schmidt autoharp, a Goldtone Dojo, which is a resophonic guitar body with a 5 string banjo neck.

The ones I sometimes play - a hammered dulcimer, two accordians, many recorders, tin whistles, ocarinas.

the ones I never play: a busted Stella tenor guitar, a no-name tenor banjo, a no-name 5 string from the late 1800's that I'll get a new neck for someday, a Majestic tenor banjo that was converted to a 5 string before I bought it and used to be my main instrument but now suffers from extreme old age, a Hohner concertina that has a busted reed, a toy Cajun-style accordian that I bought at Cracker Barrel,
a Lynn McSpadden dulcimer that has a seriously bowed fingerboard that I keep meaning to send back to Lynn for repairs, a bowl-backed mandolin, a banjo-uke, a regular uke, a set of bagpipes made in Pakistan that I can't play without getting dizzy - free to a good home if anyone wants them, they're parlor pipes. PM me if you're interested.

Probably other stuff that I can't think of off hand.

Oh, yeah, a thumb piano and a set of pan pipes.

and in addition to the above, a fife and two bamboo flutes, a nose flute, and a duck call that I use with my band as an occasional novelty. And a tongue drum. And a psaltery and a zitheresque instrument that I have no name for.

and some flutaphones or whatever you call those plastic instruments that are used in school to teach music to kids

and I have an old upright piano that's very much out of tune

Forgot the uke. It's a cheap piece of patched together crap, but it can be fun. Wish I had a good one. Should just build one.

Raptor...The trick is to find a great builder before the prices go through the roof, or beyond the buyer's budget. In my case I found Marc Beneteau when he was less known, but still very experienced in the craft, but I can't afford him today. I haven't had a moment's regret. Same with Josh House (www.house-guitars.com). He's refining his art and getting better all the time, so I bought while I could.

Every year I tell myself I'm gonna spring for a Peter Cox instrument...maybe this year.

Peace, Mooh.

Books, Lynne?

When I moved house last, there were 3.5 tons of books, according to the removal men. At least one full height whole-wall bookcase in every room, including the hall, stairs landing and half landing (but not kitchen or bathroom!).

Two years on, in a bigger house, there is at least one full-wall bookcase in every room (two more rooms, and bigger rooms overall, plus two bookcases on the stairs half landing) and many of them have books two-deep because I've run out of space.

My better half and I counted up last night - we each have about 25 books which we have not read!

I'm not in the league with most of the posters here, but here's our list:

6 foot Steinway grand piano (My Beautiful Wife's pride and joy!)
Yamaha electronic keyboard
Ramsey Special 5-string banjo
Kent 5-string banjo
A no-name baritone uke
Montana M-16-4 classical guitar
Lee Oskar "C" harmonica
    (which I've more or less given up trying to learn to play.)
An English guitar (cittern) Note: That's not "a Spanish-type guitar made in England", but a pear-shaped, flat-front-and-back six-nylon-string "English guitar", tuned EADGBE). I bought this as a "travel guitar".

Wow! That's several more than I'd thought of off the top of my head!

Of the above, only the piano, the Ramsey banjo, and the classical guitar get regular use.

A paper and comb. That's all I can afford.

Baby grand (Yamaha)
Clavinova digital piano
A clarinet
A sax
A pennywhistle
Various harmonicas
An old Martin (I'm not a guitar player, but aspire to become one someday. It just hurts my fingers every time I try, so I end up avoiding it.)

One Heintzman "cabinet grand" piano, originally property of my grandparents, built about 1900

One Giannini (sp?) nylon-strung craviola guitar, built about 1975

One Peter Cox steel-strung small-body fiddle-shaped guitar, built about 2002

One Kentucky KM-260 mandolin, acquired at Christmas

Two bodhrans, one on the wall because it needs a new goat, the other a nice oak-framed item that my husband should play more

Two recorders, one soprano (1964) and one alto (1968)

One digeridoo, a gift to my non-plussed husband from my brother

Various bones, spoons and other smacky things
