They're actually both trumpet! The first one is just played a bit more on the quiet side, so sometimes it can sound a bit like a woodwind.

The lower limit of human hearing is roughly 20Hz. There are a few instruments that can play even lower notes than that, but you'll almost always hear something because you are hearing the overtones. The lowest note on a standard grand piano is A 27.5 Hz Some grand pianos have nine extra keys down to a low C 16.4 Hz (this is below the human hearing range, ...

This is a de-tuned (deliberately out-of-tune) piano, with a heavy amount of reverb added. It is made yet more eerie with the addition of some dissonant (violin-family) string instruments. Reverb, which suggests a big empty chamber, and dissonance, which can introduce a feeling of "wrongness," are two of the most common techniques for making something sound ...

I agree with the comments by @Bebs and @Angst, this definitely sounds like it's from the guitarist rapidly playing a single note.

The optical appearance suggests tubular bells after some terrible accident. I would challenge the non-traditional statement however.

The original track is made by Kid Koala. You can see the whole recording session in the movie, here. The table drums you are looking for is a Yamaha DD-20 (4-Pad Digital Drums) The other devices or instruments he uses are: Casio TA-10 Electronic Organ. 32 keys electronic keyborad that features a tape recorder/player. Miles' model has a broken cassette ...

A lot of the comments think it's a jews harp but I don't think it's a real instrument at all. A jews harp has a lot more 'twang' in it & though you can kind of 'speak' whilst playing it, you can't get that kind of quick-change filter detail that I'm hearing. I think it's one of two possibilities a synthesiser played through a talk box The two most ...

This instrument is called Sousaphone. You can check the credits on Discogs and see there is no bass guitar.

I suggest you to watch this live recording by The Danish National Symphony Orchestra. The requested instrument is an Electric Guitar. You can also find: Jews Harp Tubular Bells Whistle (by a man, Alessandro Alessandroni in the soundtrack, by an Ocarina in the live performance) Drums Choir Symphony Orchestra

It's possible this is just an electronic instrument setting, but it sounds to me like a tuned idiophone -a percussion instrument in the xylophone family --played with hard mallets that are being allowed to bounce. It's hard to tell which one exactly. It's not quite low enough for a marimba (note the clicking effect) or mellow enough for a vibraphone, and ...

It sounds to me like a charango. Your song appears to be from Ecuador, where the charango is common. The charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family, which probably originated in the Quechua and Aymara populations in the territory of the Altiplano in post-Colombian times, after European stringed instruments were introduced by the ...

Sounds like a harp, but not a full-size concert harp. The sound is similar to 12-string, or other instruments related to the guitar, but there is a low note at 1m16s which has such resonance it could only really be played on a harp. I'd think most likely a Celtic harp. Could also be a small harp from another folk tradition, Andean harp, Jarocho harp, ...

Instrument: sounds like a violin, plucked (pizzicato). Example from YT. The sample is only a few seconds long, hard to determine genre. "Incidental music" as genre, perhaps - could image it ending a scene or linking two scenes. The sample would be described as a Sting, "short musical phrase, primarily used in broadcasting and films as a form of punctuation"...

It's an Indian bansuri flute played by Ashwin Srinivasan

One published guitar transcription sheet music directs these opening 4 measures of half note dyads (intervals of octave + maj 3) are to be played on an electric guitar with volume swells from p > mf for each note, with clean tone and delay, with fingers (no pick).

"Road to the West" was played on tenor sax by Joshua Redman. The credit at the link just says "Saxophone", but it's obviously tenor sax for these reasons: The sound is typical tenor sax The range goes below the alto sax range Joshua Redman doesn't play alto sax

It sounds very much like an alto to me - though I'm sure I heard him hit C a couple of times, which an alto shouldn't be able to reach, D♭ ought to be the bottom note - maybe the track is pitch shifted a bit. "Smokey Jazz" can be played on either, though. More info at wikipedia & My favourite ever theme played on an alto - Gabriel Yared, soundtrack ...

It sounds like a common synthesizer setting called "Orchestral Hit," which imitates the sound of an entire orchestra dramatically playing the same note in unison at once. It is essentially a sound effect, but when used to play a melody, as in this song, it loses the orchestra feel. The final impact puts me personally more in mind of a steel drum sound --...

As it says in the comments, there are several sounds. Based on this looping instrumental version, at 00:18, a synth or similar keyboard joins in, with drums (cymbals, kick drum, other drums). Some keyboard effects are also used.
