Welcome to the


-The exploration of traditional, ethnic, "world music" and

experimental or custom-made musical instruments.

Welcome to the museumofworldmusic.com - This a non profit web site that is home to an amateur-musician and a private collector of ethnic, unusual, one-of-a-kind or do it your musical-instruments. All of the articles are written about the specific musical instruments that are currently accumulated in my collection. Not all of the musical instruments will be placed on the site, mainly I either do not own the instruments or I may not have enough knowledge for the instrument.

Prior to contacting me please do read my “biography page”, I believe it is only fair to inform you I am not a business person nor am I affiliated with music industry in any given capacity. Should you have any questions, suggestions or polite critiques regarding the musical instruments, their origins, history, tunings and scales ETC. Please do contact me, I will do my best to correct any article and improve upon it – Thank you.
