    unidentified musical instrument

    hello,
    could anyone help out on what instrument comes in at 0'12" please ?
    not a bassoon for sure ... the melody is of Eric Donaldson's Cherry Oh Baby, please listen here:

    I think it's a MIDI Bassoon.

    Agree with Albert - the sound is quite 'electronic' and not a natural wind blown instrument by any means.

    thanks for your input guys, but wasn't MIDI something that was developed early eighties ?

    this 7" is without any doubt almost a decade earlier ...

    sorry, forgot to mention that Donaldson's rhythm track originates from Jamaica and was exported to Guyana where the mystery instrument was overdubbed on the rhythm.

    it could be some locally build instrument therefore

    When I was living in Toronto in the late seventies,
    Roland had an electric piano with a MIDI input, using one in a band,
    and Ontario got new electronics long after they made it in California.
    I liked Korg better.
