And its not just synths. There's acoustic instruments, outboard effects, software, even toys, in fact anything that looks odd and sounds weird has been considered for the series.
By the way, thanks to everyone who filled out the Top 3 poll (especially the guy who voted for â€˜my bumholeâ€™ as the number one weirdest instrument!). All the votes have been considered for the series, as well as choices from the people we interviewed, suggestions from the Sonic staff and a few unexpected surprises thrown in for entertainment value!
All in all it makes for an awesomely eclectic mix of instruments that will lead to some pretty bizarre programmes over the next few months.
In this episode we take a look at chart positions 20 and 19 as well as a whole mess of other weird instruments, gadgets and devices from the outer limits of technology.
As opposed to a regular series, The Top 20 Weirdest Instruments will be an occasional treat with episodes appearing on the site at various times throughout the year. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter so that you donâ€™t miss out on a single episode.
Meantime, enjoy the trip as we set off to find the Top 20 Weirdest Instruments of all timeâ€¦Ever!
