Wood wind, brass, and string are just a few types of musical instruments. With many types of instruments to play, there are countless supplies and accessories to use along with each. The following are some common terms related to musical instrument, accessories and supplies.

  • Amplifier – An amplifier, or amp, is an electronic device used to project sound. Amps are used most commonly with electric guitars. Some amps can accommodate other equipment, like microphones. Certain amplification devices can be placed in specially designed cases to manipulate the generated sound.
  • Crook – Crooks are accessories used with brass instruments like trumpets and tubas. They are tubes that can be put into or taken out of the body of the instrument to alter its pitch.
  • Pickup – These supplies are found on electric guitars and basses. Pickups are the devices that sends the strings’ vibrations to the amplifier.
  • Plectrum – A plectrum, or pick, is used to pluck instruments’ strings. Picks are used for acoustic as well as electric instruments. Picks can be made from a variety of materials and are also available in different thicknesses, though they are all still relatively thin.
  • Reed – Reeds are thin strips that vibrate to create sound. Reeds are necessary supplies in woodwind instruments like clarinets and oboes, though they are also found in instruments like organs and accordions. Reeds can be made from a variety of materials.
  • Tablature – Tablature is an alternative to traditional sheet music. For acoustic or electric guitars, tablature breaks down each note of a piece into the fret and string needed to create it. A music stand is highly recommended to make reading your tablature easier.
  • Whammy Bar – Whammy bars, sometimes called tremolo bars, are found on electric guitars. They can be manipulated to bend the pitch of a note or a chord.
