A strange musical instrument consisting of a bowl filled with water to which nails of various lengths are attached in a sort of wing shape. Basically a percussion instrument, the bowl can be tilted and struck with a mallet or the hands, and/or the nails can be struck with the same, scraped, or played with a cello bow. Rge instrument produces a very eerie, glassy kind of sound and seems to be a favorite with film music composers.
