I was in the percussion section of my high school band class.
Also, "hurdy-gurdy" is quite possibly the best name for anything ever.
And yea I was very surprised the first time I heard it was recorder in english and still have quite a lot of trouble with if. Even if I remember what it is called, all sorts of other images associated with recorder (taperecorder, record(player) pop up.) The two simply do not combine in my mind haha, eventhough I know what it is called.
