I have this thing about unusual musical instruments, and especially home-made ones. Well, I like home made anything to be honest; bodges and make-do's that do the job just as well for a fraction of the cost of a shiny new, mass produced item.
So here's seven musical bodges, some of which have been around for so long that they've acquired a somewhat iconic status as kinds of instruments in their own right, and some of which are actually the fore-runners of what, I suspect with some sadness, many people would term ‘proper’ instruments.
