Organology For The WIN

So here's a story from my trip out East that might amuse some people:

I brought my gaohu along with me on the trip, both for continuity of practice and because I had a command performance; a friend that Mom and Dad Pony made on the China trip would be visiting and would want to hear me play. Now, when I travel with the gaohu, I never ever check it. The instrument and its case together weigh only about three pounds, and that's too delicate to trust to airline baggage handlers. So it needs to go through the X-ray machine at security.
