    Ben Franklin's Magical Musical Instrument

    I found this very interesting webpage with videos featuring the glass armonica.
    The third one down, "William on the History Channel" tells some of the history of the instrument, and shows some examples of it being played. "Mesmerizing!" John

    Here is a pic of my daughter Claire (2006) playing a replica glass armonica near the Franklin Court museum in Philadelphia. She loved it.
