Friday Find: The Glass Armonica

Do you know what a glass armonica is? This instrument, credited to Benjamin Franklin, is an interesting little find that never really caught on. But, like the theramin, people still play it to this day. So here is the a video of the glass armonica being played.

One of the reasons I chose this video is because of the lack of a finely produced sound quality. It gives you a much rawer feel of what the instrument would sound like live. If you want to hear more there are plenty of videos of this strange instrument being played on YouTube.
