All of us know how a guitar, keyboards and the conventional instruments look. But there are these others instruments which look ridiculous but create beautiful music.

#7. The 12 Neck Guitar
You need to be particularly adept at your regular guitar to play this one. That is a whole lot of guitar and will require a whole lot of fingers to play.
#8. The Laser Harp
Imagine playing music with a laser beam. That is what a laser harp is, it is connected to a synthesizer. Once you pluck the laser beams, it transfers the song through the synth. The instrument became popular during the 80s techno era when artist Jean Michel Jarre brought it back into the picture.
#9. The Vegetable Orchestra
This looks ridiculous, but there is a band that goes around playing instruments made out of vegetables. Once the gig is done, the band concocts a soup with the same vegetables for the audience. Sounds like a lot of germs to me.
This musical instrument is played directly in contact with water. It looks pretty much like a water fountain. The sound is produced when you block the source of water.
