Top Ten Coolest Sounding Musical Instruments


The Top Ten

1 Bass Guitar

Yes, if you really make something out of it. A lot of people think bass isn't important, bassists just pick 2 or 3 notes standing behind guitarists. But you can play bass guitar as a lead guitar too. Geddy Lee, Cliff Burton, Les Claypool etc. - zxm

I love the deep sound the bass guitar makes, can get you dancing! - SuperCharged

Bass is the backbone of the band, take the bass out and it all sounds like crap. Thanks to Geddy Lee, Flea, Claypool, Cliff Burton and many more, the bass guitar has become more popular and in the spotlight. It’s groovy, fun to play, and I can not stress enough one of the MOST IMPORTANT instruments. - HammerJones22

2 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.

I've been playing piano for a few years now, very peaceful. - Catacorn

Really really love the sound of the piano. - Britgirl

3 Electric Guitar Electric Guitar The electric guitar is a type of guitar that unlike an acoustic guitar, is solid body instead of hollow. They use pickups and amps to produce sound that's audible from more than a few feet. They are mainly used in rock and metal music and in those genres are commonly the main instruments. A few notable more.

It's a beautiful instrument. I have been proudly owning an electric guitar since 2007. - dingodile2603

Badass instrument. It can be used for any style/genre of music, and can be melody, harmony, solo, or background. Incredible range and sound as well.

The Contenders

11 Upright Bass

I love the sound it makes! - SuperCharged

12 Bassoon

I play the bassoon, it is difficult but it just take time and effort. Also if you can play it, or listen to it on YouTube, maybe you can agree

13 Sitar
14 Theremin
15 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.

It is a difficult instrument to learn

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

Who doesn't enjoy keyboard solos in metal?!

18 Minimoog
19 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.

It is the best

20 Steel Guitar
21 Double Neck Electric Guitar
22 Oboe
23 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.

Beautiful instrument, in both sound and looks. You don't even need experience for it to sound nice, though it is difficult to actually master more complex songs on it.
