The world of music has many colors & textures presented to us as part of a rich world heritage. Through the diversity of human cultures and imaginations, we are given this treasure of musical invention, made possible by the peoples of this unique planet taking differing approaches to the mechanics and aesthetics of creating the essential rhythms and melodies of their lives. Sound World Instruments hopes to be your window on that world through our online musical instrument store by offering the widest assortment of discount musical instruments from around the globe...including:

  • World Drums & Percussion instruments with such familiar names as the Djembe & the Kalimba, whose origins are African, to the Tablas and the Singing Bowls of India.

  • If your tastes run a bit more eclectic, perhaps the ancient Semsemia Egyptian Harp or the Digeridoo, of Australian heritage, would be the sound connection you’re looking for…if so, check out SWI’s Harps & Accessories and Wind Instruments sections.
