  • Hey, how's it going?

  • Welcome back to another episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • Today, we are rating instruments.

  • It's very subjective,

  • and we don't really mean everything.

  • Please don't take offense.

  • Ling Ling Insurance.

  • Ling Ling Insurance.

  • Now that we've done the disclaimer,

  • time to uh, roast

  • I mean,

  • rate, on the tier list,

  • all the musical instruments.

  • Oh!

  • - Some musical instruments. - Yeah.

  • - Some musical instruments. - Because we probably will have left some out.

  • Yes.

  • Alright, piano.

  • I knew you're gonna put that there...!

  • Uh, no, I was dragging, my...my mouse slipped.

  • See, here's the thing with piano, right?

  • - If you look at repertoire, that's a S, right? - It's S, yeah.

  • But then you look at the fact that

  • you can't carry it anywhere.

  • Oh, that's an F.

  • - And then it's like, "oh, it's down to an F." - For sure.

  • Every time I want to rehearse with a pianist,

  • - I'll have to book a practice room. - Yeah...yeah, yeah.

  • If it's just a duet we can just rehearse wherever,

  • in a hotel room.

  • But then it's like oh,

  • but you get to play the melody

  • - and the harmony at the same time! - Ohh...!

  • But then it's like oh, oh...

  • But you can't crescendo!

  • (both) Oh...!

  • - Oh, you can't vibrato! Oh! - You can't vibrato!

  • And you've got Chopin...

  • - Nah, just kidding, just kidding, just kidding! - Just kidding!

  • - Chopin's the ultimate best composer for pianists... - Chopin's a great composer...

  • - A, because I know... - Okay, A.

  • Yeah, okay. I agree, A.

  • Piano gang.

  • - If I was serious, I do think it's S or A. - Yeah.

  • - It's a pretty top tier instrument. - I...would put it in A, I thought S and A, yeah.

  • I thought S but then you mentioned all the bad points,

  • - so I was like, - Yeah.

  • "That's true."

  • Next one!

  • - We're gonna start everything in C 'cause it's neutral. - Uh-huh.

  • - To be fair— - I do enjoy playing guzheng.

  • - I think it's cool, and it sounds amazing. - It's pretty fun.

  • I don't know enough about the instrument,

  • but, from our one hour...

  • - I'll say it's a B. - ...exposure,

  • - it seemed like such a hassle to set up. - Yeah.

  • Every bridge...

  • - Ohh...! - To tune...

  • - And you gotta put the nails, ohh, - The nails...

  • that's annoying!

  • It does seem like a bit of a hassle

  • of an instrument to set up.

  • I'm feeling like a C or B.

  • Well, it depends.

  • Do you wanna please our Chinese fans?

  • Okay, S!

  • (both) B.

  • - B, okay, yeah. - It's pretty cool.

  • Cello!

  • C for cello.

  • Done.

  • No, cello's got cool music.

  • - But it's just... - Not as much.

  • It's still a bit too big.

  • - It's too heavy. - Yeah.

  • - But cellos do sound beautiful. - I'll say B or A.

  • B. I'll like B, I think B.

  • - B, yeah? - Yep.

  • B.

  • Next one!

  • F for fagott.

  • Okay.

  • - Guys again, this is just a fun video, we don't mean— - Oh yeah

  • - Ling Ling Insurance. - Yeah.

  • It's nice, it's beautiful, it's got stuff.

  • But I don't know about repertoire.

  • Yeah, not much.

  • Not much, right?

  • I mean, I know harp concertos exist, but...

  • - Do they? - Who really listens to them?

  • - I feel like harp is just like... - C.

  • I want it...

  • I want to hear it when I'm dead, and I see angels.

  • Well, I will say one thing though,

  • the pedal, looks so...

  • - Oh...oh yeah it's hectic. - ...hectic.

  • To just change a semitone, you gotta...

  • Yeah.

  • And also your fingers will start hurting.

  • - Yeah, and then like tuning... - Like calluses, yeah.

  • - You have to go before every rehearsal and tune. - Yeah, yeah.

  • - Guys, C is clearly the best tier, 'cause it's yellow. - Yeah, it is.

  • - And.. - And it's the middle!

  • - Yeah, it's the middle, symmetry! - You're neutral!

  • Yeah, its symmebeautiful!

  • I think tuba should be below bassoon.

  • What does tuba have?

  • Okay, F.

  • They've got some nice moments.

  • Yeah, but it starts with an F.

  • Okay, lets put it in C for now.

  • - In symphonic works that I know of, - Mm-hmm.

  • - French horn has really...epic part. - Epic part.

  • And when it's played well it goes...

  • When it just plays...speaks really nicely.

  • This is what I think.

  • When French horn,

  • - like especially for them or like a solo, - Plays well.

  • - it's played how it's meant to be, it sounds like this. - Oh that's like an S. Yes.

  • But realistically, in performances, what I hear...

  • Broken notes is like f***ing this.

  • You know what, C.

  • - Yeah...C. - I think...they could be an S, they could be an F, like...

  • - C. - Yeah.

  • Potential.

  • Next one!

  • What is this?

  • Next one!

  • It's...it's like...

  • ...Wii music.

  • - Um... - Let's give it a D.

  • Yeah, 'cause D needs a bit of space there.

  • Yeah, we just need some of it.

  • - Alright, next one, obviously... - Alright.

  • Wait, no, that's not it.

  • That's a viola.

  • Is it?

  • Oh, this is a viola!

  • We almost put the viola on S.

  • - Yeah, that's was definite...yeah. - Just for that one second.

  • - You guys had your one second of glory, - Yeah.

  • in S tier.

  • - Clearly S tier. - Okay.

  • Yeah, next.

  • Dude, I don't even think as a triangle player,

  • you can be offended at that.

  • People that play triangle also play

  • - a lot of percussion instruments. - Yes.

  • And there's never usually...

  • - Not that I know of, like just one triangle job. - Yeah.

  • Next one, flute!

  • Lets start with C.

  • I have no comment on flutes.

  • I'm starting to think maybe piano should be S tier, like...

  • - Yeah, I'm looking at it... - There's nothing at S tier right now.

  • You know what? Let's just move piano up.

  • - Yeah. - They can deserve to be S.

  • - Just didn't want you guys to get too arrogant too early. - Yeah guys.

  • Let's be real, guys.

  • Recorder gang, we love you, but...

  • "But recorder's already...being made fun of,

  • and the instrumental community doesn't respect us."

  • Fine.

  • Fine, okay.

  • Bass is uh,

  • - E, you know why? - Why?

  • E for...

  • ...EPIC.

  • I don't know, man.

  • Trombone to me is like...

  • Why is that thing sliding around, it's like a hazard.

  • Alright, F.

  • - Nah...I think E. - I think trombone's...E.

  • Yeah.

  • I think trumpet has nice moments.

  • - B, or C, or A even, maybe. - If they do it well, B or C.

  • I'm feeling C or B.

  • Let's do B.

  • You got it!

  • When the trumpets nail that part,

  • - Yeah...so epic. - it is so grandioso,

  • it's just "Bang!", it's like trumpets, you guys rock!

  • Yeah, oboe.

  • As much as I think...

  • ...logically, oboe's like an "Ehh.",

  • I have a special like for oboe.

  • - I like oboe though, what do you think? - Ahh!

  • - Put in A? I mean... - Yeah, let's go.

  • We gotta have one woodwind instrument up there,

  • - Yeah. - just to keep them happy.

  • Yeah...!

  • D, for drums.

  • Good.

  • Discount violin what

  • No, just kidding!

  • I think my main issue with erhu is it doesn't project.

  • And I think also the versatility is not as much as a string,

  • like cello, violin.

  • - I agree. - C.

  • Bass! D for double bass!

  • The real bass is better than electric bass.

  • (both) Ohhhhhh!!!!

  • Double bass is nice, but you just can't project.

  • - You feel vibration... - You can feel it.

  • - Yeah. - But you don't like...

  • - Really hear it. - ...hear it, yeah.

  • Obviously...

  • Self-explanatory.

  • Lots of repertoire,

  • showy, can sound nice, can play it like, beautifully.

  • Change my mind.

  • Classical guitar's like, pretty cool,

  • but then, it doesn't project.

  • Which brings it down here.

  • - I feel like it's so overplayed. - But yeah, it's like then...

  • That every second dude singing Wonderwall.

  • Yeah, it kinda ruins it.

  • I think C.

  • Alright, saxophone!

  • F.

  • I'm sorry, guys.

  • At the conservatory, with personal experience,

  • when you're trying to practice, all you hear...

  • ...is down the corridor, in the room, saxophone.

  • - It's actually worse than opera singers sometimes, - Yeah.

  • 'cause opera singers go...

  • This is like...

  • I don't know why,

  • like I used to like saxophone, until I studied uni

  • at the conuh,

  • music at the university.

  • And there's practice rooms, from two miles down

  • the frickin' hallway, or chamber of secrets...

  • You just hear "Ehhhhhhh!!!!"

  • - Straight away, I think. - B or A, yeah.

  • - Let's put it in A. - Yeah.

  • - Dude, is thatthat's not even an instrument. - It's environmentally friendly.

  • - Okay, keep it there! - E!

  • And there's kazoo, yeah! E!

  • Kazoo, E.

  • F.

  • S.

  • - Oh, yeah. - Clearly an S tier instrument.

  • Alright guys, that's it.

  • - Ohh... - Let's review it.

  • - Okay, so chicken no.1, violin and piano, cool. - Yeah.

  • Ooh, oboe clarinet.

  • It can sound amazing,

  • - but I'm thinking about...repertoire. - Repertoire-wise.

  • Dude, then cello should be in A.

  • - Yeah, cello's got all the Haydn, Dvorak, Elgar... - Yeah...

  • I think cello should be A.

  • - I have a feeling guzheng should be A too. - Yeah, me too.

  • - I'm not sure if I feel like flute is less than clarinet. - Flute?

  • I'll put flute in A.

  • - But I don't like having three woodwinds in A. - Woodwinds...

  • It offends me.

  • Alright, okay, here's the question.

  • Flute, oboe, clarinet. How would you rank them?

  • I'll go oboe, flute, clarinet.

  • Actually no, flute has some nice stuff.

  • - I think I want flute higher, intuitively. - Flute, flute.

  • See, oboe is like...

  • - Hit or miss, yeah. Yeah, I know what you mean. - ...hit or miss, it's like it can be really good,

  • - or it can be...yeah. - Flute's more consistently good.
