    Great article Myles! My favorites are the octobass and the glass harmonica.

      I actually think the glass harmonica is a very nice sounding instrument. It is used very effectively today mostly by film scorers.

      Here in San Diego there is an annual jazz festival at the old convention center in which jazz groups, mostly Dixieland and first half of the 20th cenruty jazz groups play all, and I mean ALL of the Sax family instruments. the organizations are in general all really quality players from all over the country.

          Went wandering down that rabbit hole all the way to the double contra sub-bass flute and the Flagler College Flute Orchestra.
