Lots of really wild pics in this thread... many of these instruments, I have never even seen before!
Didn't even know the names of most of 'em... I've been looking stuff up about most of them since the first few replies to this thread... really cool!
@Thump-- yeah, I was listening to Mr. Reid all morning... really, really wild licks... just a totally crazy, very unique playing style. I can see where he would be inspirational! Incredibly flamboyant player, to say the least!
