In the 6th grade, I played the double bass in the orchestra in middle school. I did better in choir the following year.

Drums, practiced and learnt for around 2 years, but had to give up due to the fact that I wasn't allowed a drum kit in the house for obvious reasons. A shame though, as I really enjoyed it and would have liked to continue it on, even if it didn't come to much.

Piano and Voice. I sing better than I play the piano, but I enjoy the piano more.

Drums (6+ years - my primary instrument)
Guitar (took lessons in elementary school days, picked up the guitar again in eighth grade. My knowledge is limited to chords and however I can apply basic theory)
Keyboard (My drum teacher, when he started teaching me music theory, had me get a keyboard)

I play percussion (drums, mallets, cymbals, and toys), flute, piano, violin (but I've not played it in 8 years!), and I love to sing. Being in be band in high school was the only way I got through it and meet people. In college, I'm in the marching band which as has allowed me to make friends and keep playing.

Same here. I can't have a drum kit in my house. :( My mum can afford one, but we don't have enough room. This is for a proper big drum kit though. I might get a little (Not one of those childish playschool ones) drum kit which wouldn't take up alot of room.

I haven't been playing a lot lately but my primary instruments are guitar, irish bouzouki, and keyboards / synths. I also dabble with mandolin, banjo, sitar, hand percussion and like using effects / experimental noise / computer processing / studio as an "instrument". I will also pretty much try to play any instrument that I can get my hands on - I'm especially fascinated by the more exotic , folk and old-world / traditional kinds. Stuff like they have here: http://larkinthemorning.com/ - which is my dream acoustic instrument store.
