Organized by geographical region, and following the scientific classification of musical instruments according to how the sound is generated, this encyclopedia covers the historical development, construction and playing techniques of instruments ranging from the simplest clappers and scrapers to electric guitars, synthesizers and the complex mechanisms of the modern pipe organ. More than 1,000 original colour illustrations are included to show details of the instruments' design and their relative sizes, together with discussion of significant composers and performers.
