What is the silliest instrument?

Yeah. What do you think?

The silliest instrument I can think of is Woodblocks. I can't remember ever hearing woodblocks in anything half serious.

The bellowphone.

In terms of "normal" instruments, bassoon, accordion, and hurdy gurdy can be silly.

Or if you want other silly percussion instruments, the cuíca ranks pretty highly.

Hehe. That bellowphone was something else! And now I want a cuica!

Made me think of the Kazoo, which is a fantasticly silly instrument.

I always thought the melodica and kazoo were kinda silly.

Aaron Copland is rolling around in his grave.

I, for one, nominate the Diddley Bow.
