The Top Ten Most Important Instruments to a Band


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Triangle

Exactly, but it is easy to play it too loud. I think it is by far the most important instrument to any band, I mean who cares about the drums or the guitar, or even *cringes* the singing. *shivers in pure fright*

Obviously the most important and hardest instrument to play in any decent rock band.

22 Organ

I need immediate medical attention. Someone in band 7th period today ripped out my organ and started playing it. I will die if blood loss if not attended to soon. Please hurry!

23 Bass Clarinet

It is very unique and adds depth to the band supporting the low wood winds and brass

24 Bassoon

The bassoon is a hard but nice instrument. It has a low sound needed for a good band

It is a deep sound to the band
It is needed for the low woodwinda

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

This is important for Scottish rock and metal bands


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

Very deep throated and beautiful. Accompanies the violins and give the piece a great mood/tone. All around a beautiful instrument.

27 Ukulele 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.

It's like a minnie guitar and has a slightly higher pitch. Very beautiful sound.

It can be necessary

Ukulele should be #1

28 Turntables

It's important in some types of genres especially rap rock and rap metal bands

29 Xylophone

It is most important

30 Viola

I think that the viola doesn't even belong in a marching band to began with.

31 Percussions

The percussion keeps the tempo together.

Of coarse you need a singer! Bands have to have something other than just the music. There has to be some words in it!

35 Accordion Accordion Accordions are a family of box-shaped musical instruments of the bellows-driven free-reed aerophone type, colloquially referred to as a squeezebox.

They Might Be Giants!

37 Congas

I play it in choir. It's like playing bongos on stands.

38 Bongos

Because crocs play them

39 Sarangi

An awesome instrument from India

40 Piccolo

Piccolo should be necessary to the band because it provides the higher part of the woodwinds.

Without piccolo, the band is gonna sound like an icecream without those little sprinkles. It can taste good but something will be missing.
