The Tom Waits Instruments Library

Tom Waits, is known for a lot of things. One of my favorite things about his music is his knack for using some of the most esoteric sounds imaginable. Over the years he has adopted many different esoteric materials into his instruments. A very kind and amazing person has given the internet The Tom Waits Library, a place where you can find a directory of all of the instruments on his amazing records over the years. Included in the descriptions are pictures, histories and descriptions. An essential read for any fan. If only we could have a directory of his awesome recording techniques.
