Worst Musical Instruments

21 Piano 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.

If you're voting piano please go to the doctor's.

Drum Piano and Guitar are the best

Very hard instrument to master and takes a very long time to get the hang of it.

I play the piano

22 Synthesizer

It ruins actual talent by replicating it. Sorry but synths will never replace real instruments - AlbertAngrySami

This is a lie, the synthesizer is the greatest instrument of all time

The instrument of the lazy

23 Saxophone 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.

Saxophones have to be the worst instrument ever. They are kind of cool if you know how to play, but most people assume they are cool instruments, so they choose them and suck at playing. Story of my life.

I play saxophone and I am highly educated so most saxophone players are gifted and talented

A bunch of annoying teens in my middle school band class play the sax

They aren't great

24 Viola

Your just being a gayer of beautiful instruments, STOP! What's next? The piano?

WHAT? I bet you don't even know what a viola is.


I like tue violin...

Nonononono! This shouldn't be here!

25 Tuba

It is most likely on here for its size which is my favorite part about the tuba and the person who put it on here didn't like the low sound and probably thought it was heavy when the tuba is very light - lbelle0527


Hey,I play tuba>:( - Nateawesomeness

26 Otamatone

Here we have a horrific instrument, sounds like cancer. It deserve top 1

I just couldn't stop laughing at this ridiculous sound it is terrible, awful, wow it's the pits

The Otamatone was originally a children's toy created in Japan. Bravo Japan, Bravo.

This thing...
Dear god...
But I still love it...

27 Rhythm Sticks

I remember when I was a kid, we all got to play little percussion instruments and walk around in a circle. They consisted of cool things like a triangle (It was cool to me back then) and two little cymbals, guess what I got? Two rhythm sticks... Yayy...

28 Electric Guitar Electric Guitar The electric guitar is a type of guitar that unlike an acoustic guitar, is solid body instead of hollow. They use pickups and amps to produce sound that's audible from more than a few feet. They are mainly used in rock and metal music and in those genres are commonly the main instruments. A few notable ...read more.

I hate the sound of the electric guitar. Rock (any type) isn't my favorite so it is kind of a given that I wouldn't like the sound of the electric guitar. The ONLY time I've ever liked the sound is in jazz (my favorite genre.)

I HATE the distorted sound! I hate that it is used for metal!

29 Cowbell

The cowbell sounds horrendous. Anyone who thinks this sounds good is wrong.

Iron Maiden made the cowbell cooler now



30 Baritone

Sure, easy to play, but it was a beautiful sound. The baritone/ euphonium are probably the best brass instruments.

I used to play it but I loved it!

I kind think it sounds like one gigantic fart

Love it play it 24/7

31 Bassoon

Sounds like a dying animal

Sounds terrible.

32 Musical Saw

It sounds like an alien.

It's the instrument that the folk group your grade school hired uses at the end of the assembly.

This in my opinion is probably the most expensive instrument to play, and the most pointless

33 Double Bass

Not the wprst intrument but the 0layers are clearly making up for something...

34 French Horn

I play French Horn and it is a beautiful sound and once you get the hang of it, it's really easy. I would say we are the most organised section as we always pay attention and listen to the conductor and take everything in. It's a beautiful instrument with an even more amazing sound.

The French Horn section can't do anything right. The only saving grace the section has is that you can't here them if others are playing well enough.

One of the most annoying instruments to play...every partial is very close together and it's also a pain when you're constantly having to do maintenance on your horn.

35 Didgeridoo

I have one. I think it sounds cool.

36 Tambourine
37 Shehnai
38 Euphonium


39 Drum

First of all, what type of drum are you talking about? Or is it a drum set? If so, I'm offended. I'm taking drum lessons - Ku

Drums and Bass are the foundations of music, if it weren't for this and bass, music wouldn't be what it is today.

I kind of hate this instrument so yeah boo drums.

Why are there some many good insturments on this list?!?!

40 Keyboard

Yeah that's right, the koto better not be on this list, because the koto is the best instrument ever.
