What's your favourite instrument?
#1
There has been a lot of threads during my time here on COTH on music sharing, but I wanna know what COTH's favourite instrument is. Maybe post a song with it. Preferably instrumental.

Like somebody may or may not have noticed, I really like guitars. An even although I like the sound of guitars and could probably die happy if somebody played "Cry of the Banshee" right next to me when they gut me and slice my neck, it's still nothing against the sound of the Erhu. Observe

...Shamisen.

SHAMISEN.

Shamisennnn. It's even fun to say, but I love how it sounds, how you play it, everything. I'd like to learn it someday. :o

As an example, here are the incredibly talented Yoshida brothers accompanying the incredibly talented band, Monkey Majik:

I love Shamisen. Actually I love most asian instruments, but Erhu is teh best. The tones are. . . Mesmerizing and so calming.

It could be a personal bias (because I played it for 7 years), but it's always been my favorite too:


Tonal range goes as deep as a bass and as high as a violin. It's fucking awesome.

That or the organ:


Talk about raw power.

Think I gotta agree to this, it is an awesome instrument. But I must admit I am very fond of piano, harp and some kinds of flute too.


This is one of my absolute favourite flute pieces.

Wow Roxa, I love that song you linked. Happen to have anything like it in MP3 format?

Uilleann pipes. All the frakking way. Traditional Irish bagpipes. I swear, every time I hear them, my heart rate goes up.


Also, as used in World of Warcraft.


There's such a wide range of tones and moods that it can portray...

(Also, +1 epic to Roxas for opening up with the erhu.)

In the movie it is an ocarina but the recording is with a normal recorder (the flute, not the gizmo).

Are you sure? To me it sounded A LOT like an ocarina.
