  • Whats that instrument?

    ive always wondered what instrument was used on the Dirty harry soundtrack to create the eerie background noises.
    and then i caught the end of a Fraiser episode, with a choir and orchestra and there was a glimpse of a guy with a metal ball with tubes off it and he played for about 2 seconds and got the same sound...

    anyone know what it is?

    I think it's a waterphone, or at least something closely related to it. Check out a variety of different sounds you can get from it - scary high pitched noises when a bow is used on it.

              Two saucepan lids, chunk of old exhaust pipe, a few coat hangers and a merry hour or two in the shed with the soldering irons should do it, i reckon.

                I've always wodered what instrument plays the melody on the theme to Animal Magic

                That keeps you from being a part of it all
                Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                You've just got to be close to it all

                  Fender Rhodes or pizzicato strings depending on which decade you're talking about
