MIMO instrument Database
« on: September 21, 2016, 07:10:19 PM »
   I searched the forum and didn't see where it was mentioned before, so I though I would share.

 MIMO searches 24 musical instrument collections from around the world and gives information and pictures.  On the bottom of the page you can search by instrument family, then go through many other search criteria. Be prepared to drool! Enjoy

Take a jaunt through the bass clarinet section.  It's insane what kind of iterations those things took before they ended up on (honestly) the most reasonable one

I'm glad to hear that you guys are spending your time on the site!! I spent hours on it last night. I was searching for clarinets that had threadless hinge pins, and found quite a bit. Seems that quite a few German ones from around 1900 had them. By the end of the night (3AM) I had gone through almost all the woodwinds. I agree the variations and innovations are truly amazing.

I have used that site to research recorders and other more ancient instruments. It's a fantastic resource and beyond research, one can get spend a good bit of time just perusing it out of curiosity.
