The Top Ten
1 Guitar

You have so many options in atlernating the sound, like no other instrument, beside the voice of a human. Of course, there is a difference between an electric one and an acoustic. I prefer the elctric. It seems easier to play at first, but is much harder to master in the end. When I've started the guitar 25 years ago, it was a really tough time to get into it, but when you start to have fun and make pauses, when your fingers are telling you to, you will begin to progress a lot. Actually I personally know no one who can play the guitar like myself. It is not meant arrogant, but I just have never met one. So to be good in playing the guitar takes a lot of effort and time, which most people are not willing to invest and maybe a young age is a good start for any instrument, which I think helped me a lot. So what I want to say, the guitar is probably one of the most popular instrument to play, but there are not so many people who are able or willing, to get good in it. But in the end, I ...more

What I love about the guitar is how amazing it could sound, on any piece of music. It could fit in any genre, too for no reason and I still love it.

Another instrument I really enjoy playing.

2 Piano The piano is a musical instrument played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands.

I played piano for four years. I took a year off, and it's great sound and fun technique inspired me to take piano lessons once again!

I play the piano and it's super fun and amazing. Best instrument in the world!

I have an electric one so I can play almost anything with it.

The piano is one of my favorite instruments to play. And I'm really good at playing it,and its just fun.

3 Drums

It can be challenging as most instruments are but it is fun even when you don't know how to play. Can burn calories in my opinion

I really love using the drums. It's just fun.

The funest of them all you can hit things really hard with sticks

Very relaxing, and drummer can have better 'feel' of instrument, and is also closer to the music in some "spiritual" way

4 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.

You need to know how to play the violin really well and then it's fun to play.

I play violin and it is really hard but fun to play!

I may not be too good at this instrument, but it sure it fun to play

It is the best

5 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.

The Tenor Sax is so fun to play and it is relatively easy to learn.

Only ballers play saxophone.

I have not even started playing this wonderful instrument and I'm already exited to play

Super fun to play

6 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.

The flute is by far one of the most beautiful instruments in my opinion, both sound and looks. I started playing in junior high, and I was a bit discouraged at first. I couldn't even play a whole note in 4/4 120 bpm. The flute takes a lot of dedication, but it's 101% worth it. It trains your breathing, and it's just overall an amazing instrument.

Flute is the best by far. I mean yeah, it takes LOTS of breath, but it's worth it. Flute also can help you with certain sports, like swim. So yeah. Play flute

It has really cool notes you can play and you can play Rudolph the red nose reindeer , Frosty the Snowman

7 Clarinet

Clarinet is clearly the most superior instrument. It is very well balanced and creates such a majestic sound. It also looks very beautiful. Clarinets blend nicely with all other instruments and can play almost anything.

I actually play the clarinet and I think that once you get to learn the notes/rhythms eighth notes, sixteenth notes, and runs are really fun.

I've played it for 8 years and I love leaning the new songs and hearing the rhythm showing through! It has such a lovely tone as well!

8 Banjo
9 Ukulele

I am primarily a guitarist, but the ukulele is just so much more fun to pick up and play, it's light, the strings are easier on the fingers, chords are easier and it has a sweet sound. Would make a great instrument for someone new to the guitar family as it is tuned very similarly. Feel like a traitor since guitar is my main instrument, but at home, this is the instrument I keep nearby!

Portable, inexpensive - you can't not smile while playing the ukulele!
What other instrument can you join a club of fellow players having fun singing and accompanying songs?
Yes the ukulele is the most fun and fashionable instrument and is now being taught in schools as it's also easy to play.

It's a fun and portable interesting instrument to play, plus it sounds super nice.

It's Just like a guitar but it plays more smoothly.

10 Trombone

I think that trombone is an extremely fun instrument to play and that it can do a lot of things that other instruments cannot do! It also has a lot of memes and sound effects to it's name.

It's practically a toy with a rich sound. A crying shame it gets boring parts.

I pay trombone and it's so, so fun! Shame that it always gets boring parts

As a learning trombone player, I can say the trombone is delightfully difficult and very memeable

The Contenders
11 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.

I played the trumpet and it was pretty fun and it sounds great. Songs that have the trumpet in them are Cheerleader, All you need is love, and lots more. It usually is involved with the national anthem at sports games, that I if you live in the USA.

The trumpet is very versatile, and can play jazz, march, classical and much more. Played well, it could produce an incredible and majestic sound that would resonate throughout the band.

I used to play this, then I switched to percussion, but for real, this instrument is a beast.

It's easily the most used instrument; you can use it in any style of music.

12 Mandolin
13 Bass

Bass is underrated. Of all players, bass players are overlooked the most. Bass is awesome and fun.

Bass adds soul to the music. And you can groove to it as well!

If you like it deep, then the bass is for you.

The bass and double bass make such good background instruments

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

The cello is often regarded as the closest to the human voice. It can reach high notes as well as low notes, while performing all genres of music well.

I play the cello. It's just the perfect range. And it doesn't sound terrible when you first start.

Where is cello on this list? Where?

15 Euphonium

I've played the euphonium for 7 years in school, it's amazingly easy to pick up and learn the basics for (especially because of the loose lip positions), has a wide range that sounds cool, and can play many parts when you're good. It's so sad when they only get bass parts.

"I love the Euphonium because it has a really wide range you can play. The only thing is they play the bass parts with the Tuba, Bass Saxophone, and Bassoon.

16 Harp The harp is a stringed musical instrument that has a number of individual strings running at an angle to its soundboard; the strings are plucked with the fingers.
17 French Horn

I prefer the vienna horn

But for french horn you have to shove your fist all the way in the bell, so don't talk

18 Bass Guitar

The glue that holds any band together.

The mix of rhythm and melody, creating what is perhaps the most perfect instrument ever.

Ah whatever, it sounds great and it should be appreciated more.

It sounds like dance music of the 70s and it holds everything in the band together

19 Baritone Saxophone

To be honest it's so fun to see small saxes stare at the amazing saxophone

I am a trombone player and I get jelly watching people play this

20 Tuba

I played euphonium, baritone, trumpet and mellophone and in the end tuba is the one that always makes me smile, something about the low bass sound that allows you to play so many meme songs. Also with the sousaphone me and my friends are able to run around in formation while playing low Bb acting like planes, just the amount of stuff you can do with a tuba is amazing, so much fun, recommend to anyone who has the lung capacity

Tuba is a pretty cool instrument. It can sound like an Euphonium sometimes but more like a Bass Saxophone.

Best instrument, if you don't think so, you can fight me.

Tuba's are amazing but get such a small variety of music to play in bands

21 Kazoo

Its fun and easy to play

Kazoo is so funny!

22 Bassoon

A Bassoon is a perfect instrument for people who want to be bass but a woodwind instrument.

I LOOOOOVE bassoon. I learned it in 6th grade- so lucky there was a spot. It is the coolest instrument and can play sooo deep. For all you people who put bassoon as #27 (?) The bassoon is the best. Also, fun fact, a nickname for the bassoon is the "farting bedpost"

23 Marimba

It's a really good sounding instrument and very fun to play. Especially in a marimba band. You should check out the band musha marimba

I like the low tone on this instrument.

Keyboard instruments are so much fun to play because it's "finger goes down and out comes sound"

24 Recorder

The recorder is easy and fun to play.

25 Melodica

Not played by many but it's hilariously fun to play around with.
