Everyone has an instrument or instruments that they can't stand the sound of. Obviously, any badly played instument is terrible enough, but i mean those played even by professionals.
Personally, since i started listening to a lot of Prodigy, My Passion, Amaranthe etc. I've begun to love synthesizers, and think they work so well with my all-favourite rock and metal genres, as opposed to originally hating them, just becasue the timbre wasn't there with the stuff i heard previously.
Anyway, theres an example of me hating an instrument, but then loving it, adfter hearing it in a way that i can relate to. But back to the original question. Instrument i cant stand? Im sure a lot of you will agree when i say the friggin recorder -.- Badly made ocarinas sound pretty bad too.
What about you guys? what instrument cant you stand sonically?

None really. I don't particularly like banjo or ukele however. The sound is far too "goofy" and "silly" for me.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

I just can't stand the Guitar. The sound just disgusts me.

But seriously, I haven't heard an instrument I can actually say I hate.

the flute is pretty cool in folk rock and in Focus.

I don't really hate any instruments... The only thing i don't like is an organ in melodic metal stuff. don't know why :\

Recorder. Such an annoying sound! Also, im not sure how much this counts but all the drum beats made in R&B. Like the clapping sound instead of the snare. Does my head in!!!

I look like this when I hear it.

You've probably just never heard anyone play recorder that didn't suck.

I have to say I rather dislike the Highland bagpipes, due to the drone pipes. Also, electric guitar can be very hit and miss, since some poorly EQed tones are very unpleasant. I'm not talking about tones from crappy practice amps, since that would be sort of unfair, since any cheap instrument can potentially sound bad. Synthesizers are the same way, with some sounds, such as dubstep wobble basses, are horribly annoying.

I don't agree.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

During the soccer world cup, oh my word. Random people in my neighbourhood were blowing these things like before 7am and after 10pm. I understand it was in the spirit of the occasion, but I really wanted to strangle them.

Other than the blooming vuvzela, I don't really dislike any instrument - rather, I dislike the person playing the instrument just because they suck, ya know what I mean?
#35
Bass cause it's not a real instrument ololol


Nah seriously though, Ukulele and Harpsichord. I just have this thing against "tinny" sounds.
#36
Not a big fan of the banjo.

And when people don't put their finger fully over the hole on the recorder so it sounds like a cat getting raped.
