We all prefer the sounds of certain musical instruments over others. What's your favorite?
Violin, oboe, cello & pianoin that order.
It really depends on the genre of music one is listening to. For classical works I love the sound of the oboe and for jazz I dig the sound of vibes.
Classical: piano. Jazz: saxophone. Rock: guitar.
Concert Grand Piano
Trumpet. The trumpeter's ability play a soft, lyrical passage or to project through an entire orchestra has always amazed me.
This is a stupid question. You're talking music, not ice cream.
Tenor sax, for its smooth tone and expressiveness.
The Fender Telecaster.
Love the cello, very closely followed by the oboe. Those rich, woody sounds!
My newest synthesizer. At the moment, it is a Kawai K5000R. Who will that upset?
Fluegelhorn (best performed by Kenny Wheeler)
Saxophone. Probably the tenor version is the best, followed by alto.
Piano, no contest
Velodyne CT-80, an affordable subwoofer.
Guitar and tenor saxophone
The human voice. All other instruments have the possibility of individualism, but none is as distinctive, versatile, or expressive. All instrumentalists imitate the voicethat is our standard. By the way, I am an employed professional instrumentalist.
Cello, of course!
When my wife and I are checking a new piece of equipment, we use the couple of excellent piano recordings we have. But for "normal" listening I like acoustic guitar.
When I hear a n unstrument live the complex sound alway excites me. It is always more interesting than what I hear on my system
