What is your favourite sound from a musical instrument?

Asked by ucme (45991points) August 20th, 2010

Yeah just the overall general sound the thing makes. Not so much a particular tune, more simply the noise it was meant to make. Now obviously I’m assuming the instrument is played well by someone who knows what they’re doing. For me it’s got to be a violin & a piano.

Stevie Ray Vaughan’s guitar?Louie Armstrong’s trumpet? Artie Shaw’s clarinet? Neil Peart’s drums? It’s too hard to pick,but today I choose this
the piano is nice too

Mmmm, I recall answering this very recently. Cello and viola, for their warm tones. Also Artie Shaw’s clarinet.

If I’m rattled, a violin. If I’m hopping, Keith Richards at the guitar!

The sound of a flute. To me, it’s such a pure sound.

I’m really a fan of piano. Especially in concerto form where the orchestra is in the background.

Harpiscord. i have difficulty in hearing a lot of the higher notes and the harpiscord provides me that ability, when listening to songs played on it. a harpsicord sound is like a piano, but in a much higher pitch. it really became famous from the movie Love Story.

Angus Young’s guitar.

Base (bass?) guitar, i think. There are other sounds that i like but i actually have no idea what makes them – probably a keyboard.

Frenchfry's avatar

I am kind of fond of the Kazoo too.

I’m an alternative music fan, but have a soft spot for Chopin.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

A well-played Theremin sounds truly awesome. Every true Goth has a soft spot for this instrument.
