Verrophone

A verrophone is a musical instrument, invented in 1983 by Sascha Reckert, in which open-ended glass tubes are arranged in various sizes. The sound is made by rubbing one end of one or more of the glass tubes, or also by striking them or rubbing them with a special mallet. The tubes are close together so that chords can be played by rubbing more than one at the same time. The instrument carries more acoustical volume than the glass armonica and other glass instruments and generally has a range from G3 to F6. Every piece composed originally for glass harmonica can be played on the verrophone. ... more on Wikipedia
