Best Instruments In a Traditional Orchestra
The Top Ten
Don't call me biased because I played and still know how to play I just think it sounds the most beautiful.
Because I play it
I love flutes because there nice they play beautiful music and its like listening to a fairy play her flutes on besides I like more than the clarinet
Very popular with a beautiful sound.
Best instrument in the world
They have the most pure and resonant sound, huge dynamic range, and can create so much character. Just ask Mozart. Beethoven would have loved it too, but he was deaf. 😂
When played right it can be in any piece.
The bassoon is by far the hardest instrument to learn and master. With eight feet of tubing and 14 thumb keys, (not counting pinky! ) it´s no wonder bassoonists are so far and few in between. The bassoon is wrongfully stereotyped as the clown of the orchestra when they have the full opportunity to be just as beautiful, vocal, melodic as the rest of the orchestra/band.
Oh, I've always wanted to played this wonderful instrument.
Bassoon is the best!
The best sound
It sounds really pretty.
Saxophone is the best of all time
Much better than the viola
Honestly, I don't get why string instruments are so less voted than wind instruments. Strings are awesome! Also the principal first violinist is the concertmaster, the most important player!
Violin music is the most beautiful music of all time and no traditional orchestra would be complete without violins.
There's no traditional orchestra without violins. There wouldn't a traditional orchestra period without violins.
I'm surprised this is way down on the list, as this is the most prominent instrument in the traditional orchestra.
I love the noise of it's deep thud.
I play bass clarinet and I love the way it sounds. It can be really deep but also high without going overboard. I can't even believe this isn't #1 obviously nobody listened to a bass clarinet lately or they are deaf.
I find it sad that a lot of people don't know what a bass clarinet is or don't know what it looks or sounds like. It is such a pretty instrument. I had a choice between flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, French horn, trumpet, baritone, trombone, or percussion and I was like BASS CLARINET! It sometimes makes the other instruments sound not as good but no instrument is really that awful.
And people look for these special bass clarinet players. They are hard to find since not a whole lot of people play it, probably 10 to 15 percent of the population of musicians. Usually you will have like a ton of saxophone or trumpet players, so it's good to be in the uncommon range because you can win a really good spot in a major band or orchestra one ...more
It's the best I play it and I am lucky in my band we have 4 bass clarinets and it really evens the band the bass clarinet is also so majestic yet so underrated.
Cello is the best. It has a smooth and rich tone, while other string are too high pitched. A great instrument.
Has the best low voice sound quality. Very smooth sound
Cello has the best sound range
The cello is so good to play
Trombone by far the best instrument - Lucas
Violins are screechy, basses are too deep, violas are perfect!
" Not to screechy, not to deep" The best
Violas are the cream in the cake
The perfect instrument!
Out of all the instruments this one sounds the prettiest to me.
How is bass not number 1 have you even played it it's so fun
Truly the backbone of orchestra
I might do the bass
An instrument people play because they aren't privileged enough to play any sting instruments.
Basses are often looked down on, but playing a bass can be difficult, as it is harder to play, yet still sounds so beautiful.
I love playing Bass and it also sounds amazing
It's the most beautiful sounding instrument in the world. It can be a great instrument to double with a french horn. This is not in the orchestra, but sax is? COME ON!
Best instrument by far
If you mean a traditional, why not this.
Let's make this to the top.
Piccolo adds a sweet highlight to everything. It has such a cute and fun sound from afar, but it's so loud when you are the player or the person next to the piccolo player. It's such an underrated instrument!
