Unusual Musical Instruments

Just saw a busker at Bond Street Tube station, playing that well known and delicate musical instrument, the traffic cone. A big red-and-white one, which he was using as a megaphone to amplify his tuneless singing of Christmas carols, with most of the words replaced by "dum-de-dum" because he didn't know them.

He didn't seem to be making much money, for some reason.
