Who here goes to a music shop every now and again, spots some obscure instrument for less than £20 and learns how to play it?

As part of a new years resolution, I've been trying to do this once a month

So far I've got :

Soprano Ukulele - £14.99
Stylophone - £14.99
Xlylophone (in a suitcase!) - £19.99

And next month I'm going to get a recorder.

It's quite fun, and I'm sure even the most dedicated guitar player likes to chill out with a random instrument, eh?

I have a Uke...it's a piece of shit. I'm sure I'd love it if it would only be tuned at all but it's too low quality...

I've got a bad habbit of doing that, bought a sitar for £300, no idea why and no real idea how to play it, would sell it but my mother kidnapped it and is now using it as a decoration. I also have 3 drum kits, bought for under £50 each on Ebay, however I have no room to set them up, may set one up in my shed over the summer though.

Yeh man, may do that, one of my mates keeps giving me mics for some reason, I'm sure I've got drum mics here somewhere. May invest in a mixer and see what I can come up with

I've got a ukulele. I've actually thought about getting a stylophone and a recorder, but I haven't done it yet. I also want a harmonica, maybe a theremin, and some other little instruments I can't think of ATM.

I also have a kazoo, but the paper is broken so it doesn't work right.

Get an Ocarina! I got one off of ebay for about £10 and it's pretty easy to learn some tunes on it.

I've got an $800+ banjo, but I don't know how to play it. Sometimes I bust out 'Smoke on the Water' hillbilly style on the banjo and it always gets some laughs.

i got a harmonica set for 30 bucks, a kazoo, uke, and a mandolin. but i dont play them much. i just tune the mandolin like a guitar now because i figure, im only going to use it once in a while so theres not sense spending a whole lot of time learning to play it. im thinking of getting a melodica some time.
#37
Ugh i hate mandolins. I can understand ukes but mandolins just sound like cheap tinny guitars or something.

i used to think the same thing until i saw some amazing bluegrass players solo on it. but these days i kind of have a love for all instruments.
