Take A Pic Round 22 - Musical instrument

in hive-166850 •  3 months ago 

In my travels, one of the things that I like collecting is musical instruments. Music is life for me and I can't imagine how life would be without music and sound.

When I went to Japan, there was a shop that was selling DIY musical instruments. I wasn't sure what this instrument was because the instructions were in Japanese but I thought it was interesting with a string in the middle that can be tuned and the sound is projected through a barrel that was covered in goat skin. I built this instrument following the pictures in the steps outlined in the instruction paper.

This instrument produces a deep string sound but I wasn't sure how to play it. It was a mistake that I forgot to ask the shopkeeper to demonstrate how to play the instrument. But it is a cute instrument which is now a display in my display shelf :)

I tried searching for it online but only found an instrument close to it from India called a Gopichand.

Then, when I was in Thailand, they had this bamboo flute known as a Round Bamboo Panpipe.

The instrument comes prefixed with stickers that marks the note for each pipe and we blow around the black dome surface according to the notes to create music. I tried playing the "Do Re Mi" song from Sound of Music and it worked :)

All photos were taken using my faithful iPhone 6 and resized on Canva.

That is a unique musical instrument and I have never seen something like it. I am guessing that it could be a traditional instrument. However, the bamboo instrument looks familiar to me. It reminds me of sompoton which is a local musical instrument made of bamboo too. It's thoughtful of them to label the pipes with notes. I would love to check your full collection out!

Thank you @yashny. Hehe.. maybe one day I will show them here. Some of which I still do not know their names. Ah yes sompoton, I have a few too. Hehe. Traditional musical instruments are very unique, I especially like the ones made of bamboo and wood.
