What instruments do you play? (OFFICIAL)


Characterless sack of potatoes
So, I was thinking of starting an updated list of what instruments people play as well as what specific model of instrument they use. (Especially for guitarists and keyboard players, etc.)
For example, someone might post:

"I play the saxophone and clarinet"

"I have a Gibson SG, Fender Strat, etc."

which would be listed as:

ForumUser97 - Saxophone, Clarinet
xXFurry4LyfeXx - Electric Guitar - Gibson SG, Fender Stratocaster

You get the point. I figured it would be an easy and fun way to see some of the other musicians on FAF and what model of instrument they use/prefer. Remember, this is for people who play an instrument. (Sorry electronic music composers, maybe some other thread.)

If anyone has suggestions of organization I would love to hear them. I figured I would just list everyone in chronological order of posting, since arranging by instrument name is too difficult once you get people who play an array of instruments.
Part 1 of my feeble attempt to revive The Blue Note, even if it is a generic list thread. I'll update this list regularly (and I'll try not to bump it with "Added" posts) until I leave the forums.

Tell me if anything is wrong.

Re: What instruments do you play?

Baglama (Turkish lute)
There are different sizes; mine's about 38" pretty much like this one
Note that I don't play 'officially', because there's nobody to teach me and I just like the instrument. I try to pick up on what I can, though :)


Play from your ****ing HEART
Re: What instruments do you play?

Electric guitar - Custom Carvin DC800 8-string, Schecter C-1 Elite 6-string
Acoustic guitar - I borrow my dad's Taylors from time to time
Violin - Some beginners violin by Strunal
Piano and bass occasionally, but I want to focus on guitar and violin for now

Piano - Knabe baby grand (from around 1920-1930) (I also have a 1950 Kohler and Cambell)
Trumpet - Silver R.S. Berkley

Re: What instruments do you play?

Tuba / Baritone. Not sure which model, it's been some 5 years since I've last played. I still remember a bit though.

Re: What instruments do you play?

I play the flute and xylophone.
The Flute is a Yamaha brand, not sure which one but it's the type with the finger holes. The xylophone I played in band but I do have a yamaha keyboard as well.


Re: What instruments do you play?

I have a guitar, and occasionally play with it. Really should put more effort into it, I'd love to write a few songs someday. I've got a Squier Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster, it's actually really nice, the only thing separating it from a Fender is the name and country of origin.

There are a lot of flutes with finger holes; actually most flutes other than the Western orchestral transverse varieties have finger holes. But since yours is made by a well-known company, I'm guessing you have a recorder until I get more information. Do you blow into the end of it like a whistle, or across a hole?

I play the french horn! I use a Conn, though I'm not quite sure what the precise model is, unfortunately.

Well maybe I don't :V
Can you find a picture of this mystery instrument, perhaps?

Re: What instruments do you play?

It's not a mystery instrument. It's a god damned open-holed flute.
Sounds much nicer to work with than the keyed ones :-D
If only I could find a clarinet made the same way.

Re: What instruments do you play?

I used to think not until I used one that wasn't but the brand was different so I don't know how that factored in it. It was a Gemeinhardt and I've heard good things about it but it just didn't....feel right. I'd try one with the same brand but I don't have that much money to blow.


Re: What instruments do you play?

I want to play bass guitar because it is the most important yet overlooked instrument in any song.

First, in the soundtrack of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon for you video game lovers.

Then, Driven by Rush, which has a bass guitar solo in it.

Then, "For the Love of Money" by the O'Jays, in which the bass guitar provides one of soul's most well-known riffs.

Re: What instruments do you play?

I play most of your run of the mill instruments. I'm a guitarist, but I'm somewhat proficient with the drums and bass. I really want to learn how to play the steel drums though, they sound AMAZING.

As for guitars, I usually play my Gibson SG or my Strat, but I'm building a Jag right now. Should be done sometime this month. Sometimes I get to use a '72 Gibson LP or a Tele, but I don't own those two. My amp is nothing impressive, it's a Fender XD Vintage modified tube amp. Would get a Dual Rectifier, but I have no moneez ;-; For basses, I use a fender 5 string Jazz bass, and I have a set of CB drums. Not awesome, but good enough to practice on. I'm kinda a music person ^^;

Re: What instruments do you play?

@Aleu, I stopped trying flute a long tome ago so I ask you, do you think the acoustics are better on a wooden or metal flute, I can imagine they sound pretty differant but I dont really know which one is better.


Re: What instruments do you play?

Depends on the person playing it really. I've only played metal flute because of band. Flutes are pretty versatile. You can play some Metallica with them and even beatbox with a flute.

Re: What instruments do you play?

5 string bass is best bass!

My friend has one and it's pretty great, especially for instrumental pieces. He plays Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata on it.

Pftttt.... Everyone knows that clarinet is the ultimate metal instrument.

Can't be true metal when it's not entirely made of metal :V At least flutes have an edge on that.
