* The experimental rock group SleepytimeGorillaMuseum loves this trope. Alongside conventional rock and orchestral instruments, a look through their album booklets reveals such custom-made wonders as: percussion guitar, lever-action lever, pancreas (electric), tangularium, Valhalla, Vatican, pedal-action wiggler, roach, sledgehammer-dulcimer/slide-piano log, thing, popping turtle, pressure-cap marimba, and spring-nail guitar.

* The [[https://youtu.be/IvUU8joBb1Q Marble Machine]], built for 14 months by the Swedish band Wintergatan. To play it, one must turn the crank while simultaneously pulling down levers and pressing on the bass strings so that the marbles fall into place and make the desired sound effect (xylophone, bass, or drums).
