Acoustic guitar for me. No brand in particular, I just love the sound of a big warm acoustic guitar tone. Something about a tone like this just instantly grabs me. I wish I could play like Tommy Emmanuel or Andy McKee, but I don’t know if I could dedicate myself to the rigorous practice schedule that it would require.
Piano comes in second. The simple way a piano is laid out just makes it feel more natural to me than most other instruments. I feel like I’m less limited on a piano.
Acoustic guitar for me as well (surprise surprise). Currently my steel string guitar of choice is a Tacoma DM 28 that’s been with me for a while – it’s got a nice big boomy tone that is nice to play (but is actually kind of hard to record, come to think of it). My nylon string is a Kremona at the moment.
Neither of these are top of the line instruments, but both are solid wood, well built and play really nicely. One of these days I’d like to upgrade both but am working on figuring out a bigger and better space for my studio first.
Gonna have to say a nice grand piano, steinway or yamaha, with the acoustic guitar running in a close second
Guitar, acoustic or electric, has a very fond place in my heart, because I remember it being the first activity that really caught my attention fully.
I love using my Muse Receptor, controlled by my Kurzweil K2600x. She’s a bit old now, but still perfect as a controller!
Currently I’d say my Gibson Les Paul Studio
Although it’s a toughie to play…
@ Taco: That may be the coolest thing I have ever seen. Adding it to my list of things I want but will never actually have.
Old, cheap, swamp ash acoustic guitar of my friend which sounds great and my PRS Tremonti which I had to sell (was my favourite)
