Musical Instruments

Challenge #4 in the Know the rules to break them right series. Hosted by Manuaalitarkennus.
Challenge has finished
Show us great photos of all kinds of musical instruments - not the player, but the instrument. Preferably no people in the shot, but I'll allow something like a guitarists hands on a guitar or a drummers foot on the pedal. Even face is ok if you're entering a flute, for example. The main subject must still be clearly the instrument. It doesn't have to be fully visible, close-ups and even macro shots are fine. One more rule: please give us as much info about the instrument as you can - not everything you know about flutes (or what ever it is) in common, but about that single flute.

This harmonica was given to me many years ago by my late uncle, who used to play it at family gatherings. I know it was made in Germany, but nothing else about it. Sadly I still can't play it.
