Subject: RE: Why are some instruments slated?
Well, I confess to owning (and occasionally playing) a bodhran. That being said, I think that the only truly objectionable instrument is the nose flute. This isn't necesarily because of its sound, which is certainly an inprovement over the kazoo or the tissue-and-comb, but as a matter of aesthetics. After all, playing it essentially involves a semi-controlled sneeze.
