23 Bassoon

Looks like many commenters mix up versatility and importance
Years of playing the bassoon in an orchestra showed me that it can be used for many different tasks: playing solo, supporting the solo, bass, or a mixture of these
Furthermore it is suited for solo pieces, accompanied solo, chamber music and orchestra

24 Upright Bass

There are many ways of playing the upright bass. Between bowing and plucking, it can sound amazing with almost any song.

25 Drum Machine

The drum machine is a very powerful instrument that can produce any sound.This sound can be variated with the change of octaves.

26 Sitar
27 Melodica

Easy to carry around. Different from a lot of other instruments, so you seem more creative. A nice way to learn the basics of piano. Cheap but still a great instrument. Play any piece as long as its in the range of 32 keys. Some say it sounds like a harmonica, others say it sounds like an accordion.

28 Oboe

A duck call and the reed sounds like a baby bird.
