“I came across the “GIass armonica” which was invented by Benjamin Franklin and I found one really old one which was known as the “Devil's instrument” because to play it you had to run your finger around the brim - like a wine glass - but the rim had loads of lead and people would go a bit mad and start to froth at the mouth from all the lead when they played it too much”.
