Self-explanatory We have a number, mostly acquired from various shady sources (my gandpa found a mandolin under his bed and didn't know where it came from, so he gave it to us. This is fairly typical). List them below, if you dare to try and match mine :p:

Wow, I'd love to have a collection of instruments that big! Sadly I think my parents might object, and it might be a stretch trying to fit anything more than the ones I have already into student accomodation next year!

The instruments in my house stretch to:
-Flute (Mine)
-'Cello (Mine)
-Keyboard (Mine)
-Violin (My mothers, and sadly sans-A String. Don't ask)
-Recorder
and possibly my dad's old French horn, though I don't know if that's here or at my Gran's.

Wow! I remember those things from primary school.

I have a mouth organ! Nearly broke my teeth with it¬¬ The strange triangle guitar wouldn't be a sitar would it?

They are good for learning tempo and to stop yourself going to fast in a piece.
