Hi Ian,

I don't know how to thank you for giving me this opportunity to embarrass myself.

Do you want me to list all the percussion items or just the total number in each category?

Here we go...

3 melodeons, several boxes of bits, a concertina and a big russian button accordion.
Several trumpets - I think about 4 - plus a rotary valve trombone with a bell that falls off :)))
One tenor and one soprano.
Quite restrained really!

Confession time!:w00t:

3 Saxes (S,A & T).
3 Trumpets.
1 Short Cornet.
2 Long Cornets.
1 Flugelhorn.
1 Trombone.
1 Bass Guitar.
1 Piano.

I tend to focus on no more than 2 or 3 at a time. Currently having a sax sabbatical so playing Trombone, Long Cornet & Trumpet. Usually mess about with some others in the course of a week.
My main target at the moment is to learn trombone, and get to grade 5 standard in 2 years:shocked:

My favourites are Alto Sax and Long Cornet.
Kind regards
Tom:cool:

instant reaction was "not many", and then I started to think about it...

2 x Alto (that I play)
2 x Alto (for restoration - yes Saxlicker, it's those two!!!)
2 x Alto (that I loan to students)
1 x Tenor (for restoration - or sale - I'm unlikely to restore it as I have no desire to play it)
1 x flute (that I'm playing more as I've just started a trio in which it fits really well)
1 x harmonica (for fun only)
1 x keyboard (for fun, and experimenting with chords and transcriptions)

(can I add my sons 3 x guitars, and daughters recorder)

crikey...

How do we know he is not a professional musical instrument burglar?

Remember we are still waiting the result of Pauly T's body length poll and he might be a professional musical instrument burglar too.

Aaaahhh. That's the rumble of a Harley............... where's the gun????????

In the house we have a flute but I play a beer bottle better!

In the house I am looking after a Baritone Sax.

I borrow a bass guitar and drums if ever needed.

I have a voice - although my wife sometimes wishes I didn't. :)

5 Guitars (1 classical, 1 jumbo, 2 electric, 1 bass guitar) also a wrecked Ovation copy waiting for some TLC which doesn't really count (yet!).
1 Upright Piano
3 ancient Casio keyboards (2 ok for a bit of MIDI, whereas the third is tiny, battery operated and only covers 2.5 octaves but fine for working out melodies).
1 collection of blues harps (two boxes, keeping the note-benders separate from those that don't!)
1 Alto Sax
1 Trumpet
1 Bugle
1 Clarinet
1 recorder
1 assortment of percussive things (tambourine, flamenco cajòn, maracas although drum loops on my BOSS gizmo do a far better job).

So I make that 16 without counting the harp and percussion things as 'multiples'.

1 alto sax - started on this but don't play it at the moment
1 tenor sax - my main instrument
1 soprano sax which I try to play now and then
1 clarinet (from Netto) which I would like to play but find the fingering difficult
2 Xaphoons (1 acquired inadvertently) - don't play these
1 ukulele which I have just bought and am now trying to learn
1 violin - from my youth but can't bear to part with it as I hope to have another go at it someday. Needs a new bow.

This is giving me plenty of ammo to fight the "get another saxophone campaign"
Compared to you lot I've got nuthin.
Sue still says one in one out ( musical instruments that is) although it does remind me of when she left our Kate on the bus during breastfeeding. We got her back from the depot.
