This question could be open for much debate. If you are looking at "bluegrass" music, then it is undeniably Bill Monroe. Sometimes the argument arises that the instruments used in Bluegrass where around before Monroe, but it was indeed Bill Monroe that took those instruments and combined them into the core group of instruments that are still used in Bluegrass today. Monroe experimented with several combinations of instruments, even the accordion, before settling with mandolin, bass, guitar, banjo and fiddle.

Which of these instruments is not among the big five of bluegrass instruments?

It depends on today, and yesterday's music. In the music of today in 2010, I can't think of any instruments that aren't related to most any form of music.An example of yesterday, Bluegrass, Country, and Folk Music didn't have the same instruments as Classical Music. Such instruments as French horns, violins, cellos, tubas, or clarinet's.Today, it's a different story. An example of that would be, a few years back, country artist Lori Morgan recorded a Christmas album with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.================================================================I believe the person asking the question is looking for a specific instrument, based in the bad grammar in the question itself. I believe the answer they are looking for is "Steel guitar."
