The musical instrument heard on the opening credits and through much of the soundtrack is a hurdy gurdy. The hurdy gurdy is bowed stringed instrument like a violin but the bow is a rosined wooden wheel that is turned by a crank. There can be anywhere from 3 to 6 strings with some of the strings acting as drone strings. That is what makes the buzzing sound. The hurdy gurdy goes as far back as the Middle Ages. See more »

Fantastic series....if you can't watch for free its worth buying and I normally would never say that but I loved this form start to finish and every minute in between. It is pleasing on the eye regarding location as well as some of the cast but before forming an image in your mind of beautiful well over groomed characters that just don't look right then I am pleased to say that for once this is not the case....(OK slightly groomed here and there is more accurate) Acting is spot on,characters are mostly very likable, the action scenes are great, the story is for the most part simple with a main objective and doesn't have 50 twists along the way to try and out twist every thing else that gets made these days. I must point out that there are quite a lot of adult scenes and foul language which although I have no problem with it ,I definitely would not want any of my kids to be sat in the same room regardless of age, so don't let your kids watch it, no matter how much they love pirates. So if you fancy something a bit different with great actors and some proper filth, you must watch Black Sails.
