    How many different musical instruments can we all remember in each incarnation of Star Trek ?

    I'll start, what about Adam's space age Rickenbacker in "The Way To Eden" ?

    Keep them coming

    Being a longtime bass player, I remember seeing an upright bass being played by background characters once or twice in TNG.

    I'm also sure there was an episode somewhere with someone playing cowbell. Everything sounds better with more cowbell.

    Another reason for re-watching that episode. I knew it was just an accordion-like instrument, but not quite a real one.

    As Harry Belafonte would sing: Angelina, Angelina, please bring down your concertina....
