It's a piece of cake finding guitarists, singers, drummers, bassists, keyboardists and more on Meet & Jam. As we've highlighted in our other 'Six of the Best' posts, there's an abundance of quality musicians for the majority of the major instruments people tend to look for when forming a band. But what about the slightly obscurer instruments? What if you're looking for that niche instrument that will make your band stand out?
Here are six fantastic musicians who play some of the less obvious instruments available. Could they be the missing ingredient to your new project?
