The Top Ten Most Important Instruments to a Band


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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!

22 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.

24 Bass Clarinet

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

25 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

26 Cello

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

27 Ukulele

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

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

They Might Be Giants!

36 Congas

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

37 Bongos

Because crocs play them

38 Sarangi

An awesome instrument from India

39 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.

40 Timpani

Very important in an orchestra... Makes it more interesting dynamically and rhythmically...
