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 –

Important: Please do note that all the photos on my site,
are taken by my own camera, unless if other wise stated or cited the
same goes for the content.
Please note that of my musical instruments are for sale or trade.
** Important: Please
understand that as an amateur musician and private collector I do
not appraise musical instruments nor do I assess the value of
musical instruments. Thank you.
For those who are seeking to purchase
instruments, please understand I'm not a sales person. There are ample
resources in the "links I like" section. I would recommend searching
google for vendors and makers this would be a great place to start for
finding your musical instrument.
