Well... let's see if I can remember everything as much of it is at my parents' house at present

Bassoon
flute (2, one is a King- beat that!)
piccolo
clarinet
baritone sax
bagpipes
electric bass
soprano recorder (German baroque and plastic)
alto recorder (hard rubber- surprisingly decent)
fife
tin whistle (C)
crystal flute (kind of stupid, I thought it was cool at the time)
Guitar (Acoustic)

Yea, they also suck. It was my grandmother's, then my mom's then mine. There is a very good reason King only makes brass these days. I replaced it in 8th grade with a Yamaha but continued using it as a marching flute until I got a piccolo my sophomore year of high school. I never upgraded my flute after that because I became a bassoonist.
I wish I could upgrade my bassoon but I lack the money and the reason being that I probably won't be playing in any professional orchestras while teaching wee ones to play the clarinet or what not.

But for real. No. Stradivari didn't exist until the mid-1600s!

Music was being written for the violin much earlier than that, though one might argue that they weren't violins as we know them today, if only because of the tuning system. If you played in the style from then and the style now, the same song would sound vastly different because of the different tuning systems. Before, the fifths were perfect and thus, you could only play in certain keys. Later, they loosened the fifths and made the half-steps equal so people could play multiple keys without retuning, allowing composers to (ugh) switch from G major to Eb minor with just a few chords.

Anyway, sorry for that tangent on tuning...

Stradivari's violins are exceptional (what I wouldn't give to play one...), but he was hardly the first maker. However, his renown has made Cremona a huge centre for instrument making and Cremona instruments are still regarded among the best currently on the market.

I'd also like to note an annoyance of mine.
His name was Antonio Stradivari, not Antonio Stradivarius. "Stradivarius" is not his last name! It's how the instruments are referred to. ><

Well, yes, I was dimly aware of that, too. But, I admit to not knowing a whole lot about violins, and I was trying to make a lighthearted joke from the perspective of non-violinists (stirring a little shit, if you will,) which I ballsed up completely!
Also, thanks for the history lesson :)

Actually, most musicians these days actually do play in a bizarre mixture of equal-temperament and just intonation. Most violinists (and violists, and cellists) actually tune their instruments in perfect fifths (but not bassists, since we tune in fourths). Since you can adjust intonation easily on a string instrument, most of the time string players try to make intervals perfect, and adjust as needed when modulating or playing music that doesn't work with just intonation. I would be very surprised to find anyone without a fixed-intonation instrument (like piano) playing in real equal-temperament exclusively. (I know that when I play fifths, they're not equal tempered fifths, except when I play them out of tune by accident, in which case they're still not equal-tempered, just out of tune).

I'm going to stop hijacking this thread for music theory now.

i own an accoustic guitar, an electric guitar, two moderately big inexpensive casio-type keyboards, an alesis micron synth, and various other small soundmaking devices. i would consider myself neither a piano/keyboard player or guitar player so i guess all of my instruments are vaguely useless to me. i do however use them when recording as i DO consider myself to be a recording artist.

I have a piano, a keyboard, an acoustic guitar, a tenor saxophone, numerous recorders, and my sister has a clarinet. I think there's also a tambourine somewhere, and an ancient zither my grandfather owned (as the obscure instrument of the week).

I would really like to play the soprano sax...

Sadly, I haven't played much of anything for a few years. I really miss the old high school concert band... They were good times. :cry:

Violin (31 year old german instrument - older than me, but not much!)
steel string acoustic guitar
Epiphone 'les paul' electric guitar

I actually enjoy playing the acoustic more than the electric. I am tempted to sell them both and buy a nicer acoustic than the cheap thing i picked up at a porn^Wpawn shop. I'd have change left over to put towards a new toy.

I own a Selmer Signet Bb Soprano Clarinet. I love it, and it does it's purpose wonderfully - a second instrument.

My main horn is a Selmer Super Action 80 Series II Alto Saxophone. My goal is to one day own a Mark VI Selmer that plays throughout the whole range of the horn like a hot knife through butter. Buuuuuuuut, I need money before that happens.

I have a Yamaha digital piano, a Squier Stratocaster, and a crappy acoustic guitar I bought from a charity shop.

Sometimes I do the whole "one man band" thing - plug in the effects pedal, generate a drum loop and record piano / bass to it. Great fun, if a pointless exercise :D

Own?

Synthesizer
Baby grand piano
Mandolin
Ukulele
Banjo
Guitar (Acoustic and electric)
Autoharp

Play?

Piano/keyboards - Pretty good. Intermediate to Advanced.
Guitar - A little bit. Higher level beginner.
Uke/Banjo - Very little. Beginner.
Mandolin - Not at all, really.
Autoharp - Uhhh...well, there's not much to it. You press a button and strum all the strings!

Mine:
Musser full-size xylophone (polyresin, not rosewood sadly, and a bit worse for wear)
Slightly rubbish little glockenspiel
A whole pile of shaky/rattley/bangy percussive things, and sticks/mallets aplenty
Fife
Various penny whistles
Bass guitar (just a cheapo Stagg one but it's good enough for my occasional 12-bar blues)
Little bass amp (~20W?)
A very battered acoustic guitar that my dad rescued for me from a bin

My husband's:
Yamaha electric piano
Keyboard (a big one, presumably good)
Burns Red Special guitar
Fender Squier guitar (rarely used anymore as it's not great)
Electro-acoustic guitar
A huge Marshall amp with all the trimmings (open to offers!)
An equally huge Marshall amp, but all built in this time (I think)
Banjo
Effects pedals and suchlike
...That might be it, or there may be more I've forgotten. In an ideal world I'd swap the xylo for a vibraphone, and my husband keeps being tempted by a bass and a 12-string (he's a leftie, otherwise he could have my bass)

I own an upright piano and a viola. Yep, that's it. I know how to play both at an intermediate level, but probably know the viola better than the piano.

I've got:

  • Jupiter Bb Clarinet. Capital Edition or some junk.
  • Armstrong (I could have sworn that was a flute company...) Alto Sax
  • Casio WK-3300 keyboard workstation. For a Casio, it's surprisingly good.
I've got a serious case of gear acquisition syndrome, lately, so I imagine I'll be adding much more onto that list as I go.

I own two violins, one of which is a cheap full sized violin I bought in my early teens; and the other is a rather old Irish one (which is smaller than the other, but I don't think it's fractionally sized, just built that way) which my uncle gave me to learn to play on, but it's been missing it's soundpost for as long as I've owned it so I stopped playing it (and took most of the tension out of the strings).

Guitars:
Hagstrom Swede electric
Art & Lutherie acoustic

A student model tenor saxophone

and a Hohner harmonica in E

I am not really that good at guitar, I my knowledge consists of mostly chords and scales in open and first position and the A blues scale in fifth position lol. Hell, last year I was looking for a cheap nylon string guitar so I could do some conservatory exams for classical music, but my parents cancelled my guitar lessons. :cry: I still have my guitar method books and whatnot though, so I am going to go through them during the summer.

I play tenor sax (well, played now that music is pretty much over for the year) in the concert and jazz bands at my school. I wouldn't consider myself that great at tenor either.XD But my music teacher holds me in high regard because of how well I do in class (albeit I could improve my tone production more).

And the harmonica, I don't exactly know how to play it, I know the whole "blow/draw" thing and I really only use it for improvising when one of my friends plays 12-bar E Blues on the guitar. (:

The instrument that I really want to get is one from my father's home country (though it is played widely in Hungary and Serbia as well) is the tamburica., mostly the prim (which is pictured in the Wiki article) or the brač. Though i would probably liken to the prim more. I also like to learn to play the oud ever since I saw it at a music store and adored its sound. (:

Though it would be hard for me to find left-handed models. (Yeah, I am left-handed :P)

I own a nice (I think, at least) Technics electric piano, and a kinda crappy organ that I found for free on Craigslist. (I've been playing piano for a decade - 2/3 of my life, largely self-taught).

For school bands, I play a really awesome Yamaha S08 synth, and I'd love to get one for home, but I don't have the cash.

I also recently bought an Epiphone Les Paul Special bass from a buddy of mine, and started to teach myself to play it. My uncle bought me a 25W Fender Rumble bass amp to go with it. I'd like to get a nicer, maybe 5 string bass in a few months. I'm thinking maybe a Peavey...

I have:

- Buffet R13 A clarinet
- Selmer? student plastic POS. Unweighted keys = BAD
- old wooden crap clarinet which might've been a Buffet
- old Oboe of unknown origin
- Casio midi Keyboard
- e-piano
- snare drum somewhere from Ludwig
- mallet somewhere from Ludwig
- more mouthpieces and barrels than I can count... seriously I have at least 10 barrels.

I'm thinking of shopping for a new Bb since mine is getting old though still plays fine and the euro dropped so now is a good time for instrument shopping.
I require something interesting here. Alas, I have no intelligence or patience to deal with it.

I own:

A piano
2 flutes
About 5 recorders
A keyboard (erg)
And two guitars.

I am capable of playing all of them. However, I try to stay away from the keyboard and the recorders. Piano is just awesome, and the keyboard ruins my touch, and is crap. Recorders just aren't as cool as flutes.

A Cannonball Vintage Series Tenor Sax (Regular laquer)
A 1967 Selmer Mk VI Alto (It was my uncle's, so I only had to pay for shipping and to get some pads replaced. Less than $200 for all of that)
A 1971 Selmer Wooden Bass Clarinet (It plays amazingly, and was aa $1900 buy-it-now on eBay. About now, the starting prices for these models are up to $2600-2800)

I am obviously a woodwind person :D

No, its just to Eb, unfortunately. Though looking through eBay, I haven't really seen many old bass clarinets that go to low C...

The instrument that I own that matters is my Loree oboe. I bought it when I was a performing musician with funds I earned playing and teaching.

I went approximately 7 years without playing it and just picked it up again two weeks ago. I've played only three times in the last two weeks but I'm beginning to remember why I loved playing so much.

Re: What instrument do you own?

Postby Omerprime » Tue Jun 15, 2010 2:17 pm UTC

I have 2 trumpets:
1) a Getzen (200 model I think) golden Bb trumpet.
2)a Bach Stradivarius 43 Silver Trumpet(Wish it was gold though)
There's also my older brothers guitars: one classic and one electric.
And a "Red October" Piano.
I'm also planning on buying either a cello or a bass guitar, depending on whether or not I'll have time for cello lessons.(I already know how to play guitar)
(I mainly play trumpet)
