Reeds are pre-tuned to individual tones, and each tone is determined according to the size of reed. Longer reeds make deep, low sounds and short reeds make higher-pitched sounds. On certain types of harmonica the pre-tuned reed can be changed (bending a note) to another note by redirecting air flow into the chamber. There are many types of harmonicas, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions.

The harmonica was developed in Europe in the early part of the 19th century. Free reed instruments like the sheng were fairly popular throughout East Asia for centuries and were relatively well known in Europe for some time. Around 1820, free reed designs began being created in Europe. While christianfriedrich   buschmann is often cited as the inventor of the harmonica in 1821, other inventors developed similar instruments at the same time. Mouth-blown free reed instruments appeared in the USA, the United Kingdom and in Europe at roughly the same time.

Learn guitar the guitar is a plucked string instrument, usually played with fingers or a pick. The guitar consists of a body with a neck, to which the six strings, are attached. Guitars are traditionally is generally made up of various woods and strung with animal gut or, more recently, with either nylon or steel strings. Some modern guitars are made of polycarbonate materials. Guitars are made and repaired by luthiers. There are two primary families of guitars: acoustic and electric.

Acoustic guitars (and similar instruments) with hollow bodies have been in use for over a thousand years. There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the classical guitar (nylon-string guitar), the steel-string acoustic guitar, and the archtTop guitar. The tone of an acoustic guitar is produced by the vibration of the strings, which is amplified by the body of the guitar, which acts as a resonating chamber. The classical guitar is often played as a solo instrument using a comprehensive fingerpicking technique.

drum kit, drum set  is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments set up to be played by a single player.

It  consists of:

  • A snare Drum, mounted on a specialised stand, placed between the player's knees and played with drum sticks.
  • A bass Drum, played by a pedal operated by the right foot.
  • A hi-hat stand and cymbals, operated by the left foot and played with the sticks, particularly but not only the right hand stick.
  • One or moretom-tom drums, played with the sticks.
  • One or more cymbals, played with the sticks, particularly but not only the right hand stick.

A drum kit is usually played seated on a  throne(drum stool).

Most drummers extend their kits from this basic pattern, adding more drums, more cymbals, and many other instruments. In some styles of music particular extensions are normal, for example double bass drums in metal music. On the other extreme but more rarely, some performers omit elements from even the basic setup, again particularly for particular styles of music.

  Synthesizers are often controlled with a piano-style keyboard,synthesizers have keys like pianos have  but it is an electronic instrument with greater functionalities leading such instruments to be referred to simply as "keyboards".
