Great quiz! Enjoyed learning that harpsichord strings are plucked, as opposed to a modern piano - where they are struck.

Thanks. Yep, that's why the piano is often classified as a percussion instrument - it's basically hammers striking strings.

Good quiz, I'm not keen on the Didgeridoo picture, from those I've seen they are usually straight and sturdier than that shown. Looks more like an 'Alpenhorn'.
