The Chart of Musical Instruments
A massive mapping of melody-makers, this chart categorizes over 540 musical instruments! Combining aspects of the historic Hornbostel-Sachs system of classification with an updated, intuitive approach to sorting songful stuff, this euphonic family tree breaks down aerophones (like oboes and flutes), chordophones (like fiddles and guitars), idio- and membranophones (drums!), and even electrophones (we’re looking at you, theremin) into an easy-to-follow diagram of beautiful hand-illustrations, rife with rich detail to harp on. So go ahead and sound the trumpets—your piece of pitch-perfect wall art is here.
