Most Underrated Instruments

Everyone wants to play electric guitar. Everyone wants to sing. But these are the instruments few people understand and appreciate.

The Top TenXW

1Bass Guitar

Bass is BY FAR the most underrated instrument. Bass is what holds the entire band together (often), and keeps the rhythm going. People do not understand the importance of Bass Guitar.

Everyone wants to play the melody, but few people realize that without a good ruthenium's section the melody couldn't happen

Duh it's a bass, that feeling when you play a song with your band, words can't even describe it! Bassists gets so little attention. Why?

Bass players are the best

2Drums

I know, I know. A lot of people do want to play drums. But few people understand it's importance in the band. Even when the drums are simple, they still move the song foward.

3Rhythm Guitar

Everyone admires the lead guitar, but Rhythm guitar can be important as well.

4Organ
5Keyboard
6Tuba
7Viola

The viola is just as great as the violin. I would consider that to be a fact! However, personally, I think the viola is BETTER than the violin! The alto clef is based around middle C, the fingerboard is much more comprehensible than the violin, and the overall tone is just more elegant in my opinion. I think it's the perfect instrumental combination of beauty and theory, right behind the piano.

8Trombone
9Harmonica

The only thing on here actually underrated. Bass guitar and drums are really known, but harmonica rules. - Rydershady2001

The Contenders

11Sitar
12Ocarina

Ocarinas sound majestic if you know how to play one, but most prior to ocarina of time didn't even know it existed.

14Bassoon

Most majestic sound of the wind family, and has arguably the most famous solos in orchestras.

15Bagpipes

The only reason people don't like them is because they haven't heard a GOOD bagpiper play them.
