Yup. It's got a really nice dark but warm tone as well. I love it.

Superb!

I wanted to play sax at one time but where I lived, it was just too loud and as you know, it's mute proof! My band member a couple of streets away played tenor, alto and soprano and his neighbour was always threatening to call the cops.

Well one day he'd had enough and the cops were called. This police car showed up and two uniformed officers filed into my mate's front room. One says:

“Can you play that sir, so we can hear how loud it is?” so he starts blowing and the other copper promptly gets on the piano and starts playing along! After that he came back every week for a jam session.

I guess that's what you'd call the scales of justice in action!

Er……..boo!

I used to play the drums back in middle school, but I could never figure out how to read music. Sure, drums are only one note, but the sheets tell you when to hit and when to do, I forget what it's called, rolls I think. Anyways, long story short I eventually flunked out in the second year. Did pretty good by ear for a while there though.
If anyone had asked I could have told them I didn't know what I was doing and was faking it as best I could.
Good times.

I can play the piano and the keyboard but not well enough to be part of any live show. =( People tell me I'm a good singer but I don't quite believe them.

I've owned an acoustic guitar for six years, it has sat in the corner of my room for six years.

When I was in high school I played the clarinet, bass clarinet, and alto sax for Jazz band. That was a different life ago though.

I can play the ukulele, and I'm hoping to learn the banjo. There are actually a lot of instruments I'd like to learn to play, but I have neither the time or the funding.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

In high school and college bands, I played: flute, piccolo, trumpet, mellophone (marching version of french horn), and valve trombone. I tried to stay away from reed instruments like sax & clarinet. …I don't like sucking wood if I don't have to. ;)

I've had a guitar hanging on my wall for a few years. :D

I'm waiting for my hands to get a tad bigger…and reconciling with the possibility of callousing the fingertips.

I'd love to learn to play the drums, actually, but we have no place for them… D:

I sing…

…Awesomely.

I actually sing with a makeshift rock band at local bars in Houston. My drummer used to drum for Selena, no joke.

My avatar is tiny because I'm compensating.

I tried playing guitar at one point, without taking actual lessons, but I gave up on that.

I played the recorder in the 4th grade, but it was for school only, so I gave up on that, too. I still play it sometimes, though.

Now, I play the piano (well, technically it's a keyboard), and I want to play the drums.

I tried learning how to play the drums in the 7th grade at my school, but I gave up on that as well (yeah, I gave up on a lot of things DX) but I'm glad I did because that would have come back to haunt me (and my schedule).

I played the piano when I was like 10 or 11, but I was only able to play 4 songs xD. I won't bother mention the names of this songs, too embarrassing :s.

I've been teaching myself the mandolin on and off for a few years, but I'm usually out of practice.

When I was younger, I've tried learning piano, violin, and clarinet. The first two I chickened out on because I was afraid of recitals. I stopped playing clarinet because I never signed up for band past 7th grade… all because I didn't like my middle school band teacher.
