The instruments are a series of unobtainable items that Henry can interact with from Chapter 2 and 3 of Bendy and the Ink Machine.


There are six types of instruments appear in Chapter 2: banjo, violin, bass fiddle, drum, piano, and pipe organ.

They make a sound when interacted with.

  • Lacking a chinrest, the in-game violin bears a slightly different appearance from that of a real-life modern violin.
    • Also, lacking a bow, the violin is plucked instead, even though the sounds of violin depicted in Sammy's voice recording are typically made with the bowing techniques.
  • There is no wind instrument in Chapter 2, specifically a clarinet for the episode "Sheep Songs".
    • However, it is speculated that Boris has the clarinet, since it is his.
  • The pipe organ is the only instrument not to be a part of the puzzle.
    • When the pipe organ is played, a moan can be heard.
    • If the player plays the pipe organ five times, they will be granted an achievement called "Johnny's Broken Heart".
  • A sound of a faint organ, different to that of Chapter 2's organ, can be heard from Chapter 4's teaser trailer.
