Zither Autoharp

What are some really cheap instruments?

Like the ukulele, recorder or harmonica.

Any other suggestions? Thanks! :)

A "decent" recorder is several hundred dollars or more. Those plastic recorders used in 4th grade music are far from "decent". Play one of these and see for yourself - http://www.mollenhauer.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=frontpage&Itemid=1&lang=en

The same can be said for ukulele and harmonica - a good professional instrument is far from "cheap" - some cost hundreds or thousands. The Hohner Super Chromonica 270 isn't exactly "cheap" - http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/hohner-270-super-chromonica-chromatic-harmonica

Any instrument can be had cheap though. It's just that you can't expect the quality to compare well to really functional musical instruments. Toys-R-Us has all sorts of "instruments" that are under $20 and many under $5

That said, from someone who plays a lot of different types of instruments, those you list are properly classed as folk instruments. Remembering that any instrument can be "cheap" or "expensive" - folk instruments tend to be lower priced than many others.

Penny Whistle
Ocarina
Native American Flute
Ethnic Flutes of all sorts - panpipes, shakuhachi, etc.
Appalachian Dulcimer
Zither
Autoharp

Keeping in mind that really good examples of any of these will cost real money. A rosewood or silver hand cut pennywhistle isn't actually "a penny" and a top notch autoharp can cost as much as a piano.

The best "cheap" is to make it yourself. ♪♫♪♫
