    Strange Jazz Instruments

    I recently saw a video of a Contrabass Saxophone, here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXBeu7o9uUM. This is one of the strangest jazz instruments I've seen. If you can top that, share a video or picture.

    A nose flute I think it's one of our ethnic instruments in my country. Haven't seen one, though

    Teddy, I am in Wales, but I ain't Welsh

    <---I am a Filipino, Teddy. We have lots of tribal/ethnic instruments that I haven't seen as well.

    I did guess you were not Welsh. I have seen nose flutes played, but never in Wales

    Cool Strange Jazz Instruments

    What about Dizzy Gillespie and that twisted pretzel like trumpet/cornet instrument he played His cheeks would puff out like a blowfish, and often,watching him as a kid, I was afraid they were going to burst with all the effort he had to exert to blow into that thing to make it sing, and make it sing he did indeed.
