    They each have their place. If I were to pick two I would pick a piano, violin/viola combo.

    It depends on how talented the person playing it is, all of them can sound good or all of them can sound awful.

    I think the Violin can be a very, very beautiful instrument - but it really needs another instrument to be at the top. Violin solos - even if you're Karen Briggs - tend to be screechy after a few minutes.

    As much as I love classical guitar, I'd say the Piano. It's central to so many influential composers and classical pieces - Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, etc. It has a broad range of emotion you can wring out of it, and it can sound full and rich on it's own.

    Or was I supposed to give some hair brained ditz response just because the OP is Waloshin...? :p

    Of those three, the piano. But a well played and scored cello piece can take my breath away.

    NOTHING is as bad as Rocky Top! Boomer Sooner is a close second, though.

    Cowbells, on the other hand, are sweet, sweet, music! :D

    They are all beautiful sounding in their own way. It's all a matter of taste, though, which individual one you would say is truly the most beautiful. I'd take a cello over a viola, for example. However, I would choose a piano if I could only listen to one instrument. A piano, in my opinion, is one of the most dynamic of all instruments. But does that make it the most beautiful? Tough question. Under the right person's fingers, maybe.

    Been listening to his Cello Suites (Bach) over christmas and its got to be up there with the most beautiful noise made on an instrument (desert island instrument still a piano tho...)

    The visually most beautiful instrument? This is well worth watching (instrument at the end...)

    Then again, 43,000,000 other people weren't let down either. :D

    I took it to mean that rdowns favours the human voice. :rolleyes:

    Although, not necessarily that particular one. :p

    In future it would pay to just remember these 6 letters, JYRHA0.

    Out of those three, I'd have to say Piano. I've always found the sound of a viola a bit like a singer pinching his nose while singing; in other words, a bit nasally. I find the sound of an acoustic guitar plain ol' offensive to the ears. That's just me.

    Out of all the musical instruments, I find the timbre of the Cello most pleasant. IMO, it most closely mimics the human voice in quality.

    I'd have to say the piano as well. As it is the only instrument I can think of that I like listening to on it's own. While the others need accompanying instruments to get that full range of sound.
