    Clarinet. It just has this sound like no other instrument and of course I want one!
    I'm playing the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order!

    I voted clarinet of course being a long time professional. But, I have played quite a bit of Eb clarinet. Too bad you can't check two items as I equally enjoy Eb.

    Clarinet for me, such a soul-stirring sound, although I do love them all.

    Cor Anglais is my favorite by far. It is beautiful and emotive.

    My favourite wind instrument is the recorder. I play the sopranino, the soprano and the alto recorder.

    I've got a favourite recorder player, too, namely Giovanni Antonini.

    The descant sounds so earthy the neighbors child of approx 10 years is learning and we can hear her practicing all hours, just heavenly...

    Difficult to choose again, but maybe the saxophone. I play the alto saxophone as a second instrument and also love the soprano saxophone. I would also like to try contrabassoon saxophone - I have only heard a recording played on it by Vinny Golia...

    Contra. There's not a lot of literature for it, but I sit up & take notice whenever one's in the house.

    I couldn't pick just one. I love clarinet, oboe, cor anglais and sax the most
