    Turnip sections and solo cabbages? Will you record the lettuce with and without vinegarette?

    When you say \"Previous experience of working with vegetables is highly desirable, particularly in a musical setting\", does lobbing tomatoes at a Bay City Rollers tribute concert count?

    I insist on biologically cultivated vegetables. Everything else would be unprofessional!

    You know, just because *some* people don\'t play \"traditional\" instruments is no reason for you guys to start cracking jokes about us! That\'s incredibly rude, and shows incredibly poor taste and a lack of culture on your part.
    I have been a professional musician for 21 years now. My parents first started me out on Rhubarb when I was 4, and I am told I was quite the Child Prodigy. I later moved on to Arugula when I was 8 and won the \"Young Leafy-Vegetable Player of the Year\" award at the 12th Hamburg Vegetables for the Arts Festival at the ripe age of ten. I have since been a featured Vegetable Soloist on numerous albums and film soundtracks inlcuding 1st Roma on the \"Attack of the Killer Tomatoes\" score, and in a bit of a departure, I played a wedge of Swiss Cheese for \"Stuart Little Returns.\" I don\'t usually do dairy, but the Director was a family friend and wouldn\'t take no for an answer.
    So, gentlemen, in closing...please don\'t mock that which you don\'t understand. We are all brothers, we musicians, and I\'d take a Kosher Dill over a Stradivarius any day of the week.

    Sorry to say you\'re late, but of course we _do_ work on the smell-thing already! ;-)

    Well Andyt,

    You are in luck !
    As some of you know by reading what my day job is, I am a framing carpenter as well as a fine wood worker . I have turned many carrots down , on my wood lathe , into fine flutes and recorders . Apples have worked out well using my router to make an excellent ocarina . I have also made kazoo\'s using celery and a thin piece of iceberg lettuce. An other neat instrument I have made was an Indian snake charmers horn using a very straight and long cucumber , a tomatoe and two pieces of sugar cane stalk for the reeds . I actually got the idea from when I turned down a cucumber on my lathe for a clarinet . You would also be amazed by my string vegetable instruments . I only use the finest corn stalk hairs for my bows and strings . Now I know this is getting a little out of the vegetable group but the body of my banjo\'s are made of a pumpkin and a bread stick . Of course you wouldn\'t use it in a vegetable orchestra but hey, maybe you can market it on an ethnic sound sample cd.

    Well these are just a few of my projects and if you contact me I will give you a list of my complete product line .

    Looking forward to doing business with you .
    And for all you that don\'t know when to jump on the opportunity wagon, \" The future is for those who take it.\"

    Sincerely,
    88fingers. [img]graemlins/tounge_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wonderful topic. However it rises one critical question that exposes a flaw in your thesis:

    How would you create a cymbal sound from a combined set of vegetables?

    If this question can be answered. I am sure you will not only create a killer library - you will also stand first in row for the next Nobel Prize in biology.

    Think about it.

    Love - Chris
