Top Ten Most Beautiful Musical Instruments


The Top Ten

1 Piano Piano The piano is a musical instrument played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands.


2 Violin Violin The violin is a wooden string instrument in the violin family. It is the smallest and highest-pitched instrument in the family in regular use.

I've been playing the Violin for a year now and what I love about it is that you can do vibrato which is so nice. But takes months in order to do this. It's so nice I listen to Violin music to help me fall asleep at night.

My sister plays this and I do not like the sound but I still love it and I love the flute

Most powerful, emotional and beautiful. - glambert

3 Flute Flute The flute is a family of musical instruments in the woodwind group. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening.

Definitely most beautiful, high pitched and sweet, it's crisp and clear,. It sounds like the harmonious amd beautiful chirp of a morning bird. Unlike oboe which sounds like a dying chicken, or the violin, which sounds like nails on a chalk board, the flute is harmonious and melodious. Gentle yet firm and criap. Soothing sound that's emotionally healing and a powerful river of feeling can be played. The guitar is emotionless and clumsy, while the drums are harsh and noisy. The saxophones are incredibly loud and annoying, while the trumpets blaring and ear splitting. Cellos, Tubas and trombonist are low and sound like farting. The flute is dedicated soft. its peaceful tube floating through the air, riding on the wind, and being the graeful instrument it is. It's tune is like a gentle spring breeze, charmingly soothing the hearts, minds and ears of all who hear its truly lovely tune. The flute is hard to master, much harder then all instruments, but beautiful in the end. It is the best ...more

Sounds good when played right. I can't listen to someone play flute with really airy tone quality and splits half the notes. But when played by a pro can sound incredible with a crisp and characteristic tone.

Most beautiful and sweet sound I have heard, reminds me of a delicate bird flying through shiny trees and scented flowers

I love the sound of flute

4 Cello Cello The cello or violoncello is a bowed or plucked string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths.

This is a beautiful instrument similar to a human male's voice in both range and tone. From its resonating low harmonies to its passionately played higher melodies, the cello possesses the power to transcend barriers and to touch the heart.

So soothing and beautiful. I can play my mom to sleep with it.

5 Harp Harp The harp is a stringed musical instrument that has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard; the strings are plucked with the fingers.

I totally reckon the harp is most beautiful because it is angelic and was featured in the bible.

6 Guitar

Classical guitar is the best

7 Bag Pipes
8 Soprano Saxophone

Seriously. The clarinet is AWESOME and should be number 1. Not only does it make a beautiful sound, you can play many types of music with it too. - Minecraftcrazy530

Clarinets are awesome they should be number 1 I play the Clarinet and it is the best instrument in the woodwind family!

16 Pipe Organ

This definitely deserves the first place - it's the biggest, most complex acoustic instrument, and has the widest range, an incredible sound power and is way more versatile than people nowadays think! In the early 1900s it even replaced orchestras in theaters!

The pipe organ is a symphony all to itself and deserves the number 1 spot.
The pipe organ consists of hundreds and thousands of pipes all enclosed in wooden casings behind hundreds of beautiful facade pipes.
Through its multiple divisions, the pipe organ can offer the sounds of flutes, piccolos, trumpets, clarinets, string instruments, and even the human voice through choir divisions, and of course lets not forget the thunderous great division.
The pipe organ can play some of the softest and quietest musical notes ever known, and it can also play the loudest and most powerful musical notes.
The pipe organ has been around a VERY long time, and is not only used for worship in churches, but also for live music in concert halls, and there are multiple symphonies composed that only a pipe organ can play such as the famous toccatas.
The Pipe organ is both the largest and most powerful instrument ever known in existence, with enough different sound divisions to rival a ...more

17 Erhu

Beautiful Chinese instrument

18 Hammered Dulcimer
19 Ukulele Ukulele The ukulele is a member of the lute family of instruments; it generally employs four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings.
20 Piccolo

The piccolo solos I've heard are pretty amazing, even though piccolo and even soprano instruments are usually just annoying. Besides the trombone, the piccolo is probably one of the best solo instruments I've ever heard.
