    Most beautiful-sounding instruments

    I agree with your choices, Leifr, except that I would substitute the harpsichord (which I play) for the piano. Actually, though, Ormendil is right. There are so many very beautiful instruments that the question is really impossible to answer.

    I'd hate to omit the hammered dulcimer, the sarod, the recorder, the viol d'amore, the glass harmonica, the Peruvian harp, the Irish harp.............
    I admit, though, that it may be stretching the definition a bit to call the sound of the bagpipe beautiful, thrilling though it undeniably is.

    Although not the most beautiful sounding instrument, I like the Anglo-Saxon lyre, which my Ancestors used thousands of years ago.I love its simplicity.

    First of all, I think every instrument has it's beauty, but if I have to choose maybe would be these:

    Classical Guitar (but of all I think the best is mine, not because it's mine, but for the sound that has. It's an old Hohner guitar, I think from the 30's or the 40's, a really relic. It belonged to an uncle I really loved and the main charasteristic is that it's pegs were made of wood and the system is like the one in acoustic guitars but with the difference that the peg is just one piece. But the point here is that, I don't know if it's because of the wood or what but it sounds like heaven)

    others are:

    Practically, all the family of strings (except maybe the banjo)
    Pan flute (or sikus as we call it here)
    Instruments of Celtic music and the folklorical music of the North West of Argentina.

    But, I can't name just one

    Nothing beats the immense flexibility and variety of sounds and moods a piano, when rightfully played, can create. I play classical guitar, but nonetheless acknowledge piano's superiority.

    Violin (alto) comes close second.

    My favorite sounding instruments are classical guitar (which I play), lute, harpsichord, organ, violin. I love Baroque music.

    Of course also electric guitar (which I also play), drums, and bass, as I am somewhat of a metalhead.
