Stuck at the 3:00 mark for me after I got through a bulk of the answers.

I don't think you should accept violin for viola...they're different instruments. Good quiz though!

Kaleb: There isn't really any way to tell in this context whether it is a violin or viola; IIRC, the only major difference between the two is size. The quiz could stand a lower time limit.

If a sequel is made, may I suggest adding: bass (show four strings), cello, accordion, flute, and xylophones? And some less common ones like the oboe? The more the merrier.

At first, I thought 'I' was a Cornet. Good quiz, but you could be more specific with drum as well (e.g. a snare drum or a bass drum). And the bagpipes one.

typed in bagpipes and it did not work
Mar 3rd, 2010 at 04:50 GMT
Please accept "bagpipes" (if you are going to ask how I typed that without "bagpipe" being accepted, it was because I typed "babpipes" by mistake and changed it)

Thanks, guys. I'll definitely do one with more instruments for more variety and better knowledge testing.
I had included tom tom as a possible answer, since that's what the original image was--but perhaps with cropping of images, they become more difficult to distinguish. But I could try more specific drums in the updated version. I definitely don't know too much about bagpipe varieties, but I'll consider that as well. :P
@hank1 & pablo2743:
Apparently "bagpipe" and "bagpipes" are both suitable terms to use for a single instrument. I just added "bagpipes" to correct it for you fast typers.

Would be a lil' more challenging to guess in order instead of a free-for-all. Great idea though!

Since the saxophone is technically an alto saxophone, you should probably accept that too. Same thing with the snare drum
Mar 4th, 2010 at 14:26 GMT
Weird coincidence: The letters for guitar, tambourine and piano are H,I,M. So who's "him"? Maybe the Guitar Man (Bread), Mr. Tambourine Man (Byrds) or Piano Man (Billy Joel).

you can't tell the difference between a violin and a viola by looking at them, so it's good you accept them both. That bugle didn't look like a bugle. I thought it was some kind of ethnic instrument.

Hey, I made this quiz back in January: http://www.sporcle.com/games/wilsonhubbell/muscialinstrumentsatoz

I missed the pan flute.
Mar 27th, 2010 at 21:26 GMT
Any chance of a more challenging sequel? (Ex. hurdy-gurdy, bassoon, ocarina...)

at=fter watching 'britains got talent', i put timbral for 'I'.didnt work though :D

French horn players often call their instrument 'horn'. So, accept 'horn' for French horn.
