Ten random things: February 28

Ten string instruments:

  1. Oud
  2. Santoor
  3. Trumpet marine
  4. Violino piccolo
  5. Çeng
  6. Baglama
  7. Cittern
  8. Dutar
  9. Gayageum
  10. Igil

The odds are reasonably high that you've never heard of most of these instruments — I myself had only ever heard of the oud, though I was able to guess correctly what a Violino piccolo was — so I've taken the liberty of linking to the Wikipedia pages for each of them.
