acb, aml, bou, cle, emp, llo, nds, rro, ssi, ymb
The above line lists 10 triplets, each a part of one of 10 words, belonging to a well defined set.
Name the words and comment on the set's origin.
aml -- don't know Agung a tamlang
cle -- don't know Ophicleide
emp -- don't know not in Wikipedia article
rro -- don't know Guitarrón
ssi -- don't know Vocal Percussion or Classical Guitar
The llo and the ymb stood out, the latter starting out as symbol, but the llo of cello pretty much confirmed the musical instrument category.
A program to search all words came out with too many entries for most letter combinations, but acb found
sacbut sacbuts Macbeth
and indeed a sacbut is a musical instrument.
I recognized bou as tambour once I realized the category was musical instuments.
The rest, I marked "don't know" above. Some of these were then identified by a Find On Page in the Wikipedia article on a list of musical instruments, and those identifications were added to the list above. Only emp remains unidentified.
