So here's a question for everyone: Whats your favorite Musical Instrument(s)? And do you play a musical instrument?

It's hard to make a list of what my favorites are (because I love just about all of them!) but to list a few I've been interested in lately are: The Hammered Dulcimer, Shamisen, Erhu, and the Ukulele. Despite my love for music though, I haven't yet learned to play any musical instrument. I'm hoping to one day, though. (I'd learn to play them all, if I could. :lol)

Also, if you know of any unusual instruments or songs, feel free to post them! I have a sort of obsession where I'm constantly looking for musical instruments I've never heard of before, and like listening to many different types of music.

(And for those who are interested, here's a link to a page on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_musical_instruments Inside is a list of many many different musical instruments from all around the world!)

Never played an instrument, I am not musically talented unfortunately (though I have been told I have a good voice :S). But I love the drums!!!!!

One day I will get myself a kit.

I played trombone in high school and college, but that was a long time ago.

My favorite instrument to listen to is probably the piano.

guitar and bass

but i wish i was good at drums. I think there's an invisible string connecting my feet and legs that keep me from doing two different beats at the same time

Favorite instrument: Harp

I played trumpet in HS. I was the only one, too, for 3 years. I went to a very small school.

I play guitar, bass, & drums but I'm not sure I can say what my favorite instrument is. I do however think flutes are instruments that could be used far more often. If I was to learn more instruments keys officially & some form of flute would be it for sure. My music links are in my signature for those interested

I'd have to say that I like guitars and drums about equally, I have never played any instruments.

I love the sound of the cello, Yo Yo Ma playing bachs cello suite in G minor is worth checking out. Also Andy McKee on youtube is Freaking AMAZING! CHECK IT OUT=)
My brother bought me a mandolin for my birthday I have to wait until I go and see him before I can pick it up though. I play the guitar, ukulele, bass. I like making music its cathartic.

Piano and cello are my favorites. I've been learning cello for a few months and I studied piano for about a year but am now taking a break because of wrist discomfort :(. I've also done a little with guitar.

Well, I have to include the violin because I played it for several years. I haven't played since 2004 though, and that makes me sad. But it was stolen by someone I (unfortunately) know, and I can't afford another one. I also think the cello is another favorite.

Well, I theoretically play Great Highland bagpipe but I haven't picked mine up in forever... so I guess I don't really play an instrument anymore.

As for favourite instruments, well, ever since I was a child I have been awed by the PIPE ORGAN.

And I can't really suggest any new instruments, I'm not one of the lucky people that understands all the music talk !! (Like my sister!) But here are some nice ones anyway.

There are many different kind of bagpipes, here is an example from Asturias in Spain (la gaita asturiana).

Santur (hammered dulcimer, Iran,)

oud is nice:

My brother bought me a mandolin for my birthday I have to wait until I go and see him before I can pick it up though.
I used to take mandolin lessons like 14-15 years ago but I had to stop, but it was fun...I would still pick it up and play what I had learnt from time to time. Unfortunately now I haven't seen the thing in years and have no idea what happened to it. It was my dad's so I hope he has it!!
