What instrument do you own?

It's only cool if no one's heard of it.

A Cort C4 electric bass, a really sh***y Vantage electric guitar, a Yamaha classical guitar my Dad bought in 1978 and gave to me in 2006, a 6-piece Tama Swingstar drum set with 8 Sabian cymbals. And just on Saturday I ordered one of these, only in orange.

I always thought Bongos were pretty ugly. certainly awesome playability and versatility, but ugly.
I suppose such pettyness hasn't really helped me in life.
uhhhh fuck.

I have an ancient Casio keyboard, a low-end M-Audio MIDI keyboard, a low-end used guitar, and a used clarinet. I'm in the process of teaching myself how to play piano well, and then I'm going to teach myself how to play pitches/chords on the guitar and clarinet.

See, and I think they look awesome! What I like most about the looks is that they don't look like anything else out there. Every other bass just rips off of J-basses, P-basses, or Gibson guitars.

I have an oboe and a harp here at school with me. Much more than that would not fit in my room. (Actually, the harp doesn't either, I have to keep it elsewhere....)

At home, however, there's....two more harps, another oboe, a piano, several flutes, a baritone, a trombone, a keyboard, a trumpet (I think?), and a digeridoo. I cannot play most of these, but my family can or could at some point in the past.

Also, here at school, my hovse owns a piano and an organ, and there's a harpsichord in the music house. I think they actually pay a couple of the students to keep it in tune.

I own both an acoustic guitar and an electric piano, but I haven't touched either in a while. I'm not much of a musician. It's too bad, because the piano cost me about $1500...

Our family owns...a lot of flutes/flute-like instruments. I have two flutes--I use the cheaper one for marching band, and the other for symphonic band. Also, our really crappy piccolo is somehow basically mine even though I despise it. :P My mom also has a regular C-flute, a good piccolo, an alto flute, and a base flute. She also owns several penny whistles and I think two recorders, though one is broken. In addition, I think she has a cello and a clarinet somewhere....

EDIT: Oh! We also have a piano that hasn't been tuned in awhile. ^-^

I have 3 violins:

1. A 3/4 size that I played when I was little. It's not been played since my little sister was 10 years old, and my parents eventually shipped it to me because they had no use for it. It's your basic student violin, probably worth a hundred dollars or so. I want to donate it to an elementary school music program but that has proven surprisingly difficult.

2. A full size that I played from age 11 up until college. It's decent enough but it has Caspari pegs that are all messed up. Really, it needs the whole scroll re-worked and new peg holes drilled for new (traditional) pegs. That's a lot of money to invest in a violin that I never play, so there it sits.

3. My regular violin that I play......regularly! It is NOT a strad copy, thankyouverymuch, it is a French made Vuillaume copy. My teacher, incidentally, has a real Vuillaume.

I want:

A piano. A good one. That matches my living room decor. And is not too loud for an indoor household space, yet has power when you need it. Is that too much to ask?

A harp. I can't play the harp; I just think they are so beautiful! I probably could pick up the harp fairly easily since I can play piano and am generally music-minded.

I own an Aria electric guitar, an acoustic guitar, violin, banjo, and a Mark II drum set. I mostly play the guitars. The banjo was just something I tried out and then stopped after a while.

My sister has a harp, just a lap one not one of the full sized ones. I guess they are somewhat easy to play but can take a while to tune.
