The first records of the spoon being used as a musical instrument date back to our Childhood, when our mums would let us "cook" with them as we hit a large pot with an unprofessional spoon to create a strangely pleasing atmospheric banging. This technique later led to the development of the Drums, a little known untuned instrument played by hitting a 'stick' on a 'box', often used to scare children away from sweet shops. By the late Baroque period, the spoon had evolved into a double-sided contraption, very similar to that used today.
