GUEST,Songbob Your #1 Instrument... NOT #2 or #3s... (64* d) RE: Your #1 Instrument... NOT #2 or #3s... 03 Sep 10

My choice would be the pre-1867 Martin 2-27 a good friend has lent me on long-term loan. The reasoning is that the search party would have more incentive than just looking for me!

Seriously, I'd probably take my Meisterklasse Hohner "C" harmonica, on the chance that strings would be hard to get for most any instrument, and the only non-string instrument I play is the harmonica. The choice of the Meisterklasse over any of my 'normal' harps is because the aluminum comb (frame) is harder to damage than the plastic or wood ones of the Marine Bands / Special 20s / Lee Oskar harps that make up my "stock."

And I might sneak a Dan Moi* into my luggage, since jews' harps aren't necessarily 'musical instruments,' and dan mois are almost unrecognizable as jews' harps anyway. The inspectors would never notice it.

Dan Moi * Vietnamese jews' harp made of brass, and the tongue slot is cut with a laser. Nifty, wonderful sound, and very portable. Played on the lips, not the teeth, as well.
