This is a single clue based on the sort common in cryptic crosswords. I made it up myself and I have no idea if it will be hard or easy.

To answer this question, write (or rather type) ...

an article about the smallest musical instrument (8 letters)

Please explain your reasoning for each element of the clue..

This is:

THEREMIN

With definition:

'musical instrument'

And wordplay:

an article (THE) + about (RE) + the smallest (MIN. as in 'minimum').
