    eh you can't really base an instrument on anything but the instrument itself. Some incredible instruments can come out of china , but they also shovel out the crappiest internet intruments in the world. Labels can also be very misleading as shops put their own labels in them sometimes.

    I just got a six piece Tama Rockstar in black a few days ago, with a handful of cymbals by Zildjian and Sabian, DW5000 kicks, DW hi-hat stand and DW maple snare. So I'm pretty excited.

    Mainly guitar for 15 years, bass, keyboards and drums for 10 years

    Actually recording and it's the most difficult :D

    I WANTY! Vocals (Growl to opera and nearly all in between. I'm an odd little being.), guitar, keyboard. I dabble in bass and can play a bit of woodwind too, but I wouldn't really count them.

    I primarily play guitar, but I also own a keyboard, which I hardly ever play. I also play my brother's bass more than he does, and can actually do some rhythm stuff better than on my guitar (galloping is ridiculously easy once you can play with 3 fingers).

    I also sing along to songs, when the possibility of other people hearing is as low as possible.

    Bass mostly, for about 8 years. I'm also doing some vocals now but we really need a vocalist. Also guitar and keyboards, but I'm not good enough at either to really play in a band (keyboards maybe).

    I'm trying to play drums but my footwork is shit.

    Guitar( I have an Epiphone Les Paul, and an acoustic), vocals(Growls and clean vocals with a decent range) and the violin which I haven't played in a while, but I'm thinking about combining it with some riffs.

    I know how to play some bass and keyboard but I don't count them because I don't play them regularly.

    I've played guitar since 84. Vox since 85. Bass and keys on and off since 92. Drums since 2001. I am better on guitar and vocals and go downhill from there on the other instruments. I am not too bad on bass these days, as I have actually upgraded my equipment lately (since the last time I played bass with some people jamming). I try to improve vox, guitars, bass everyday.

    My primary instrument is guitar. But, you name it, I play it. Or, if I can't play it I can program it in. All my original work is 100% my vision and my instrumentation.

    I've been a drummer my whole life, but I do much more than play the drumset. I played Tympani for 6 years in school, as well as marching snare, which I still practice on. I'm big into DCI. I also play piano. I took classical piano lessons for 4 years.

    I was surprised to read that I'm not the only one who played cello before and then gave up. I started playing because it was "love at first sight"...and that lasted for 6 years. By that time I was so fed up with the music school that I stopped playing.

    I regret that now and I want to start playing again. But then I'd go for playing the classical Indian way. Let's see what the future brings...

    And I also played saxophone...I still don't understand why the hell I playing this. That lasted for only 3 years.
