Nothing characterizes Aries better than a bold, commanding trumpet fanfare. The trumpet is a classic, bright, forefront instrument that is always ready to take the stage.
Known for its jazzy sensuality, the luxurious, classy-yet-alluring nature of the saxophone is a great representation of Taurus.
Able to be fingerpicked or played with a bow, the cello is both versatile and warm and even bright at times, and this reminds me of Gemini thoroughly.
Soft and sweet often, but bright and perky when need be, the flute characterizes sweet, chatty Cancer well.
Leo: Timpani(aka Kettle Drum)
The timpani(the first instrument on this list I’ve played before, oddly enough) is a very bold, distinct instrument that has to played in just the right way for it to pop. It’s this bold, temperamental nature that has me thinking “Leo”.
Violin is known for it’s precise, classy music, and it’s this accuracy, clarity, and class that is a very good representation of Virgo.
Libra: Acoustic Guitar
Ah, acoustic guitar. Romantic, calm, folky or fantastic, it’s very popular, versatile and friendly. It’s this grace and softness that embodies Libra.
Scorpio: Armonica(no, not harmonica)
The Armonica is a wildly misunderstood instrument, with a very unique, haunting tone. It’s this depth and anotherness that represents Scorpio.
Most people would say that bagpipes are an…aquired taste, and I’m inclined to agree. Their sound is very unique, abrasive, and jarring, not to mention bold, and this is just like Sagittarius, though admittedly I prefer bagpipes to most Sagittarians unfortunately.
The tuba is a wildly underrated instrument. Having been in concert bands before, I can say without a doubt that the tuba is necessary for the depth and warmth of a concert band. They necessitate hard work and effort and practice, and this is what truly reflects Capricorn.
Aquarius: Nose Flute
Unique, unexpected, and(despite that it’s been around forever) often shunned by traditional/higher class people due to the fact that it does involve the nose, the eccentric nose flute is a perfect representation of the odd Aquarian.
As long as you’re not listening to Squidward, the clarinet is a sweet, versatile instrument that can be bright and upbeat or sweet and understanding and melancholy. They can portray a lot of passion softly, and even when being more bold retain a smooth tone, and this is very reminiscent of Pisces.
