The Boys and their toys - FOTC's instruments

Banter about the rhythm of the movement of the feel of the melody of the rhythm of the feeling of Bret and Jemaine's music. Here you will find the largest known collection of Conchords lyrics and chords.

I think, we know that the Conchords wouldn't be the same if they didn't have the instruments they use to create their wonderful music.

My intention is not to compete with these threads: Casio DG-20: Sex machine! and The Omnichord: A Sexy Instrument?, but to complete them.

So here's the thread dedicated to all other instruments, toy and non-toy, "serious" ones that our Boys use to amuse themselves and then us.

God, I love that photo waaay too much. It's like "hey, Itzel. We heard you used to be in band in high school, and as such are obsessed with band and orchestra instruments. We think you'll find this incredibly hot."

Oooh, band jackets!
Aaah, a Sousaphoooone!
Eeee, a snare and a bass drummm!
Woooooooah, a glockenspiel!!

Let's start with pianos. We all know the story of the red one and how it was replaced with the white one, but not for too long. Sheila [image] .

but there are evidents that there were more toy pianos in the Conchords' history:

...as well as toy guitars ;D.

Jemaine likes playing the bass guitar:

the type of this one is Kavkas
[image]


the acoustic bass guitar is ok too

Bret prefers electric guitars:

the colour doesn't matter as long as it's white or red:

Bret is faithful to Yamaha products

I think it's the same guitar in both pictures.

EDIT: 1974 Yamaha FG 200

Thank you, Sarah, for pointing me into the right direction #glomp#

Jemaine can't leave his classical guitar La Patrie Motif:

even though it looses the polish

but I've read at the producer's site that it "will actually become better sounding with playing over time."

How very true about its owner #drool# ...

(...yes, and bongos)

I love the colour of the wood of these guitars:
Bret's

and Jemaine's

I haven't seen this guitar live:

Bret likes small guitars too?

This instrument may be a Greek one called bouzouki, according to gezyka's investigation.

I haven't finished [image] . But if you have Bret with his ukulele, then go ahead. I'd have to look for it little longer. He's not my specialty ;).

I should have used a better cap, but I want to show that they've been using
