Magical number one instrument in the world period.

62Pedal Steel Guitar

Just such a beautiful sound, great for sleepy zen people but can be upbeat too, I love this instrument, also very hard to play so that's why there's so very few that can play it very goof

Usually 10 Strings E9 Tuning Very nice sound used in country music a lot

Flugelhorns are some of the most beautiful instruments of all time. I'm planning to get one for myself soon. They have a pleasing, rich tone that's unlike any trumpet. Sadly, they aren't known as well, since they aren't heard much except for in jazz, and marching bands. Just listen to Chuck Mangione's "Feel So Good". It feels really relaxing, and entertaining all at once

A flugelhorn is an instrument similar in appearance to a trumpet, with a sound resembling a mixture of a trumpet and a horn, also taking the best of both instruments. The tone is absolutely gorgeous, the mellowness of the horn in F and the versatility and range of a trumpet. Chuck Mangione is a great example of an amazing flugelhorn player, an amazing performer and songwriter.

I want a Flugelhorn! *screaming (high pitched) I want a Flugelhorn.

It's obviously the flugelhorn

There is no need for 'crwth' to be written all in upper case letters, it isn't initials. Crwth is a Welsh word that rhymes with 'truth' and 'tooth'. It's a stringed instrument played with a bow. - Crwth

I like these instruments because they stand out from everyday boring ones, such as Guitar or Drums.

An underrated instrument with a pretty sound. Makes you feel you're in the old west.

73Tin Whistle

One of the most under-rated instruments on the market. Often looked at as a toy(much like the poor Ukulele actually. Yes I play one of those too.), but this instrument is more versatile than most people would expect. For a beginner it's easy to get started with an off the card stock Clarke or Waltons etc. and these would even see you through if you ever got to a point where you played wood winds professionally. But for those who can play, there is nothing like a well voiced higher end instrument from makers such as Colin Goldie, MK, Black Diamond, Chieftain etc.

Fun, inexpensive and easy to play.

Beautiful clear sound, can play A LOT of songs

Underrated instrument.
