Musical instruments, dance music and more are becoming more popular as a means of expression, but are there any instruments that have their own special charm?
In a survey conducted by Australian music website Bandcamp.com, more than 30% of respondents said they would be interested in making their own musical instrument.
The results were based on a survey of more than 8,000 Australian users.
A total of 5,200 respondents were asked how they would make their own surf instrument, with the results revealing that the ‘surfing’ genre is a popular choice for many of them.
The survey revealed that of those who made their own instruments, 41% would use a surf instrument to recreate the feel of surf music.
The majority of respondents also said that their instruments were designed to mimic the style of music they listened to at home, with almost half of respondents (46%) using a surfboard as a way of recording their music.
Of the other musical instruments surveyed, 16% used a guitar, 13% a bass and 7% a piano as a recording device.
The ‘surfer’ instrument category is considered the most popular among respondents.
However, there were also a number of other popular categories of music instruments, including drumsticks, kazoos and electric guitars.
Among the respondents who chose to make their instruments with a surf or other musical instrument in mind, most would use the same type of instrument in every single song.
