Life just wouldn’t be as great if music wasn’t a thing. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of classical, trip hop, punk, smooth jazz or rock & roll, the instruments that artists use to bring their visions to life are just as iconic as the artists and the creations. Co-organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, “Play It Loud” showcases approximately 130 musical instruments as legendary as the people that played them alongside posters, costumes, essays and photographs. These aren’t just any instruments, either. The collection is nothing short of record-breaking. Muddy Waters “The Hoss” Fender Telecaster. Buddy Holly’s Gibson J-45. Bo Diddley’s “Twang Machine” made by the Fred Gretsch Manufacturing Company. Louis Jordan’s Mark VI saxophone. Chuck Berry’s Gibson ES-350T guitar. Jerry Lee Lewis’ George Steck & Co. petite grand piano. Ringo Starr’s Ludwig drum kit. Jimi Hendrix “Love Drops” Gibson Flying V. And that’s not even the entire 100+ collection. The “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” exhibition is already open at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 199. It will be open until October 1st.
