Top 10 Most Underrated Musical Instruments
The Top Ten
Cello needs to be as popular as guitar or piano, it's so beautiful and it's unbelievably versatile!
Honestly is a pain to play right next to someone (who uses too much bow.) You get stabbed in the thigh.
It might be big to lug around, but it makes a beautiful sound.
Cello is one of the best string instruments.
Definitely underrated. There are some bands which use flutes. But those bands are very few. - zxm
I play the flute and I am a witness that the flute is one of the most underrated instrument
The saxophone is a truly underrated instrument, at least in band and orchestra. The saxes are often muted out by the sheer size of the trumpets' sound. This instrument is the driving force of jazz music. It doesn't get nearly the credit it deserves.
Must be one of best inventions since fire.
Is Mayonnaise an Instrument? - burningninja06
No one knows but it's pretty cool
It's always overshadowed by the six string guitar, but it's more important than six string guitar. People say that because it has four strings it's easier than guitar when it's not, let's see the average douchebag guitarist play Victor Wooten or Marcus Miller. It can also have more strings than the basic four string, the six string bass tuned BEADGC is a perfect example. Give the bass the respect it deserves because when you dance to a good song the bass is making you dance whether you know it or not.
I like the guitar more, but the bass is a great instrument. It keeps the other band members from messing up (at least when playing live) and there are good bass lines like the following : For Whom the Bell Tolls, Peace Sells But Whose Buying, Under Pressure
Also, the bass normally has 4 strings, but that doesn't make it easy to play. I saw one at a music store yesterday and the size of the fretz made my come out of my head and land on the moon and turn around to see if the bass was gone yet. My eyes didn't return til I left the store - Skullkid755
Clavichords are better though
I bet half of you don't know what a euphonium is. Trust me low brass needs more attention! - PianoQueen
I play this and it is awesome. It is really fun to play because you have to work for it. If you just hum to play it (kazoo) then what’s the point? It’s also cool because it has a beautiful sound when played correctly.
No one likes it but it rules
So underrated. Most 6-12 grade bands don't even have bassoons. That is just bullcrap.
This is probably the most beautiful and versatile instrument that I know of. If you don't believe me, listen to pretty much any movie score.
Sounds like guitar.-. - malamJONES
This is so underrated it so undrated that it's at the bottom of the list for this list because most people are not sure what it is or if it I an instrument even though it is better than all those instruments above this one. that is a disgrace that its at 23 when their are 23... just a disgrace to music
Well, I love the theremin!
Very underrated wind instrument
The banjo is a truly American instrument. I wish it was less of a joke and more people took it Seriously.the banjo isn't only for bluegrass,it can be used for a variety of genres.in fact some old time and folk banjo can sound very beautiful.if more people took the banjo seriously and saw much more of the banjo then a hillbilly instrument, then would love it.
Most people think of it as a loud, annoying excuse for an instrument. I say go listen to someone who can actully play the bagpipes. NOT your primary school teacher. And trust me, you will find the awesomeness in this instrument.
It's not underrated.
