Good question, since the final rules aren't published yet, although information about them is slowly filtering out. To help prevent the spread of misinformation, I'd like to clarify a bit: the rules this year do not require specific types of instruments. You can build whatever types you want, as long as 2 different types are used.

My guess is his coach went to the summer clinic or the like.

That's what I'd heard, obviously nothing is certain till the rules are out, but this is the rumor i'm most familiar with

You know what was funny? Jeff Anderson showed us a "sneak peak" at this year's event at states last year. Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpfYt7vRHuY
Unfortunately, we didnt realize it was a joke until after the loss of hope.

The short description already published on soinc states that all instrument types will be allowed:
soinc.org wrote:Sounds of Music (C) - Prior to the competition, students will build two different instruments of any type based on a 12 tone tempered scale, prepare to describe the principles behind their operation and be able to perform a major scale, a required melody and a chosen melody with each.

sorry about the confusion
1) my coach did not go to the clinic (not that dedicated lol)
2) the new "short event descriptions" or something like that on soinc.org said something about "instruments of any type"

Quick question. You said that there's no restrictions on instruments. does that include range, or just type?

Range is likely still restricted.

Just type. Range is still spelled out in the rules.

probably the same as last year? don't think range ever gets changed because last year the range was the same as when sounds was ran 3 or so years back.

The ranges do get changed from year to year, so don't expect them to be the same as last season. Yes, they were the same last year as 2008, but they were different between 2007 and 2008 when the event ran in back to back years.
