The Top Ten

1 Guitar

You have so many options in atlernating the sound, like no other instrument, beside the voice of a human. Of course, there is a difference between an electric one and an acoustic. I prefer the elctric. It seems easier to play at first, but is much harder to master in the end. When I've started the guitar 25 years ago, it was a really tough time to get into it, but when you start to have fun and make pauses, when your fingers are telling you to, you will begin to progress a lot. Actually I personally know no one who can play the guitar like myself. It is not meant arrogant, but I just have never met one. So to be good in playing the guitar takes a lot of effort and time, which most people are not willing to invest and maybe a young age is a good start for any instrument, which I think helped me a lot. So what I want to say, the guitar is probably one of the most popular instrument to play, but there are not so many people who are able or willing, to get good in it. But in the end, I ...more

What I love about the guitar is how amazing it could sound, on any piece of music. It could fit in any genre, too for no reason and I still love it.

Most things that are this fun are illegal

Another instrument I really enjoy playing. - cosmo

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 played piano for four years. I took a year off, and it's great sound and fun technique inspired me to take piano lessons once again!

The piano is one of my favorite instruments to play. And I'm really good at playing it,and its just fun. - cosmo

Piano is a horrible instrument in my opinion so boring

3 Drums

Very relaxing, and drummer can have better 'feel' of instrument, and is also closer to the music in some "spiritual" way

Ba Ba Crash

It can be challenging as most instruments are but it is fun even when you don't know how to play. Can burn calories in my opinion

I really love using the drums. It's just fun. - Mumbizz01

4 saxophone saxophone The saxophone is a family of woodwind instruments. Saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet.

I play the saxophone and it is really fun. Alto and Tenor

Only ballers play saxophone.

I have not even started playing this wonderful instrument and I'm already exited to play

Tenor sax is so awesome with a good tone... melts faces

5 Banjo

The banjo is the definition
of fun. The sound, the fingerpicking. It's the essence of fun :D

6 Ukelele

So easy but so good.

Portable, inexpensive - you can't not smile while playing the ukulele!
What other instrument can you join a club of fellow players having fun singing and accompanying songs?
Yes the ukulele is the most fun and fashionable instrument and is now being taught in schools as it's also easy to play.

It's a fun and portable interesting instrument to play, plus it sounds super nice.

7 Clarinet

I've played it for 8 years and I love leaning the new songs and hearing the rhythm showing through! It has such a lovely tone as well!

I actually play the clarinet and I think that once you get to learn the notes/rhythms eighth notes, sixteenth notes, and runs are really fun.

8 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 may not be too good at this instrument, but it sure it fun to play

So fun if you know what to do

It is the best

9 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.

One sentence,” I'm better than you”

I love love love love love fast music, having the melody, challenges, being right in front of the conductor, small cases or easy transport and almost everything about the flute! It's also fun to be able to smash the low brass player's ear drums.

10 Trombone

It's practically a toy with a rich sound. A crying shame it gets boring parts.

The Contenders

11 Mandolin

Most underrated instrument

12 Trumpet Trumpet A trumpet is a blown musical instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group contains the instruments with the highest register in the brass family.


Why is this so low?

Well, it’s pretty cool and makes a nice noise.

13 Bass

Bass adds soul to the music. And you can groove to it as well!

If you like it deep, then the bass is for you.

Bass is underrated. Of all players, bass players are overlooked the most. Bass is awesome and fun.

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

I think it's fun and sounds good

I play the cello. It's just the perfect range. And it doesn't sound terrible when you first start.

Where is cello on this list? Where?

It's just such a great instrument

15 Euphonium

I've played the euphonium for 7 years in school, it's amazingly easy to pick up and learn the basics for (especially because of the loose lip positions), has a wide range that sounds cool, and can play many parts when you're good. It's so sad when they only get bass parts.

16 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.

So beautiful it’s lumpin’!

17 French Horn

I personally play french horn and I find that it is really fun once you get past figuring out the instrument

18 Recorder

The recorder is easy and fun to play.

19 Sitar
20 Baritone Saxophone

I am a trombone player and I get jelly watching people play this

To be honest it's so fun to see small saxes stare at the amazing saxophone

21 Tuba Tuba

I played euphonium, baritone, trumpet and mellophone and in the end tuba is the one that always makes me smile, something about the low bass sound that allows you to play so many meme songs. Also with the sousaphone me and my friends are able to run around in formation while playing low Bb acting like planes, just the amount of stuff you can do with a tuba is amazing, so much fun, recommend to anyone who has the lung capacity


TUBA IS THE GREATEST OF ALL"ask any tuba player. It’s anyone’s favorite instrument who plays tuba.

22 Melodica

Melodica cured my diseases

Not played by many but it’s hilariously fun to play around with.

23 Piccolo Piccolo
24 Kazoo

Kazoo is so funny! - Userguy44

25 Bass Guitar Bass Guitar

The glue that holds any band together.

The mix of rhythm and melody, creating what is perhaps the most perfect instrument ever.

Ah whatever, it sounds great and it should be appreciated more.

It sounds like dance music of the 70s and it holds everything in the band together

Very underrated and the heart of the band

Sounds cool

26 Viola

Lol violas suck go violins!

THE JOKES THE JOKES THE JOKES! I have strings and jazz band at the same time, and I skip jazz band to play viola in strings. I also love the look on people's faces when you tell them ' No, it's not a violin, it's a viola! '

27 Cabasa
28 Cornet

Absolutely brilliant for someone who is uncontainable

29 Classical Guitar
30 Bagpipes Bagpipes Bagpipes are a wind instrument using enclosed reeds fed from a constant reservoir of air in the form of a bag.

One word: stirring!

31 Organ Organ

You are the complete orchestra w an organ.

Once you get the hang of it its amazing fun!

32 Bassoons
33 Synthesizer

New order. That’s all

34 Double Bass

Unlike the Bass guitar you don’t always have to play pizzicato. Using the bow is beyond fun.

35 Didgeridoo
36 Oboe Oboe Oboes belong to the classification of double reed woodwind instruments. Oboes are usually made of wood, but there are also oboes made of synthetic materials.

I think oboe is the best because I has a really nice sounding to it like a light sound

37 Bells
38 Vibraphone Vibraphone

I think vibraphone is so underrated
