Great Stalacpipe Organ
stalacpipe.jpg

The Great Stalacpipe Organ in the Luray Caverns in Virginia (USA) is often referred to as the biggest musical instrument on earth. It\'s no really an organ, it got that name because the stalactites that produce the sound resemble the pipes of an organ and the keyboard looks also like an organ.

The sound of the Great Stalacpipe Organ is produced by hitting the stalactites with a rubber hammer that is activated by the press of a key on the keyboard.
