Top 10 Strangest Musical Instruments


We all know how diverse is music as an art form and how diverse are the genres of music people listen to, so it’s only natural for the instruments used to produce it to be diverse as well. However, not all musical instruments follow traditional standards these days, mainly given the rise of electronic, techno, or alternative music over the past three decades or so.

It makes sense then for some of these instruments to be quite strange, just as the music they are used to make is considered strange by those who haven’t developed a taste for it. So let us find out what are the ten strangest musical instruments ever invented and what type of music can be played with them.

9The Zeusaphone

With a name like ‘the Zeusaphone’, you would expect this instrument to produce music fit for the gods. You see, ever since the invention of the Tesla Coil, people have been searching for alternative uses for it, which is how the Zeusaphone came to be. At some point in 2007, a couple of inventors managed to harness the low-voltage currents of the coil and create this bizarre instrument which was designed to make electrifying sounds when played.
