16. WheelharpWheelharp

The wheelharp is a fairly new musical instrument in the market. This instrument is designed to produce the rich sounds of the existing stringed instruments but in a more refined sound.

Its keyboard controls 61 bowed strings, so one musician can sound like an orchestra- or at least the string section of it. Learning how to play the keyboard to control the bowed strings to get the right kind of sound is not an easy task, it takes a lot of practice and patience to be able to hack it.

15. Pedal Steel Guitar/Electric GuitarPedal Steel Guitar/Electric Guitar

This instrument is a guitar fitted on legs and a stand. Other than that, there are foot pedals fitted which change the pitch of the strings when played. During practice, the sound effect might not be bad for the listener but for the player to get the right notes really well to master this instrument can take quite some time.

Coordinating the strings with the hands and feet to produce that perfect musical effect is not easy with this instrument. A lot of practice and good training is required
