Bass guitar

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!

Piano is a horrible instrument in my opinion so boring

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

3 Drums

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

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

4 Banjo

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

5 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 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


Love it :D

6 Clarinet

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.

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!

7 Ukelele

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


It’s Just like a guitar but it plays more smoothly.

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.

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 Bass

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.

13 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.

14 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.

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

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

I think it's fun and sounds good

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.

29 Bassoons
30 Synthesizer
31 Viola

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! '

32 Double Bass

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

33 Didgeridoo
34 Bagpipes Bagpipes Bagpipes are a wind instrument using enclosed reeds fed from a constant reservoir of air in the form of a bag.
