Meet the trumpet marine, a towering, single-stringed instrument with a host of resonating or sympathetic strings.

It was a trumpet-substitute for nuns and an unusual vehicle for virtuosic musical display in the late 17th century, falling out of circulation in the late 18th century and rarely seen or heard since then, despite its magnificent sound and appearance.
