his wife, Marguerite Miles, an amateur violinist.
It was sold by Christie's New York in April 2005.

Most Expensive Cello
"Bonjour," Stradivarius cello
The “Bonjour” was built in 1696 and named after Abel Bonjour, a
19th-century French cellist. The present owner acquired it in the fall

for the Arts Instrument Bank. Other famous Strad cellos include the "Davidov,"
currently owned and played by Yo-Yo Ma, and the "Duport," owned by
acclaimed Russian cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich.
Most Expensive Guitar
"Blackie," Stratocaster guitar
Eric Clapton's prized Stratocaster became the most expensive guitar ever
to sell at auction when it went on the block at the Christie's Eric
Clapton Crossroads Guitar Auction in June 2004. The entire collection
went for a total of $7.44 миллиона. Proceeds of the sale benefited the
Crossroads Centre in Antigua, an addiction treatment center Clapton
established in 1998.
Most Expensive Harpsichord
The rise of harpsichord construction in Antwerp, Belgium, had everything
to do with the city's economic prosperity in the 16th century. The
Ruckers-Couchet family dominated the Antwerp production of keyboard
instruments from the end of the 16th century until the middle of the
17th century. This harpsichord, built by Joseph Joannes Couchet in 1679,
sold for £267,500 by Sothesby's in 2001.
Most Expensive Drums

This part of the custom-made 1968 kit for The Who's drummer, "Moon the
Loon"—who was notorious for his wild antics on and off the stage—escaped
his penchant for destruction and realized £139,650 in a 2004 auction by
Most Expensive Flute*
Platinum Powell flute
This platinum flute was made in 1939 by the Verne Q. Powell Company for
William Kincaid and used by him until his death in 1967. Kincaid was a
world-renowned flutist and teacher who played with the Philadelphia
Orchestra from 1921 until 1960. His flute was exhibited in the 1939
World Fair in New York and mentioned on page 768 of the The Andy Warhol
Diaries. When Christie's sold it in 1986, it went for about five times
the then-record price for a flute.

Most Expensive Trumpet*
Dizzie Gillespie's Martin Committee trumpet
This trumpet earned its unusual name by being designed by a committee of
brass-instrument makers for the Martin Band Instrument Company. The
model went on to dominate the jazz trumpet market from the late 1940s
until the mid-1960s. Bebop virtuoso Dizzy Gillespie played Committees
throughout his career, as did jazz trumpet greats Miles Davis and Chet
Baker. This one was sold by Christie's New York in 1995.
