    I like drums too...

    But my all time favourite musical instrument is probably the violin.

    I also love all kind of folkloric musical instruments... My favourite one from my homeland is the "bucium":

    The bucium Is A Type Of Alphorn Of Dacian Origin Used By Mountain Dwellers In Romania.

    Maybe because of poetry and folklore... but also because of their uniqueness. "Bucium" has a very unique and quite transcendental sound.

    From Germanic countries, I think I like the most the Hardanger violin from Norway (violin + folklore = Hardanger fiddle).

    Generally speaking, I love music that makes good use of folkloric instruments... from black metal (some certain bands, for example some albums of the Romanian black metal band Negură Bunget) to folk rock and folklore...

    (from a Negură Bunget concert... with "bucium")

    I appreciate each piece of good music that makes good use of folkloric instruments.

    I also appreciate Tibetan bowls for their healing properties (if they are good calibrated, though).

    I should say piano/grand piano as I have played that or guitar as I'm learning to play guitar right now.

    But I like/value these 2 folk instruments a lot:

    From Sweden: Nyckelharpa





    From Finland: Kantele.
