The Top Ten

1 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.

Originating from Hawaii, a happy tropical place, I think this instrument take the crown. - PianoQueen

2 Xylophone
3 Steel Drum

4 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.

Always played during victory and fanfares. - PianoQueen

5 Calypso
6 Recorder

I can't really play anything sad on a recorder. - PianoQueen

7 Bassoon
8 Clarinet

9 Calliope

10 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.

Always in hard rock and has a very powerful sound. - PianoQueen

The Contenders

11 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.

The oboe is often made fun of because it sounds like a duck,but I think it has a cheerful noise to it that could make anyone's cloudy day bright again.

12 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.
13 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'm surprised it didn't make it in the top 5!

14 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.
15 Cello The cello or violoncello is a bowed or plucked string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths.
16 Harpsichord
17 Double Bass
18 Bagpipes Bagpipes are a wind instrument using enclosed reeds fed from a constant reservoir of air in the form of a bag.
