Underrated musical instruments

What are some instruments you think are overrated?

We typically know the ones in bands for school or typical orchestra instruments but what are some uncommon ones that you think deserve some more love?

@Music? I’m interested in hearing which one’s you think deserve more cred.

They do. If only I knew how to play.

I think guitar I guess

I think flute is kinda underrated? I absolutely love flute music

I think that the viola is kind of underrated. Everyone knows about cello and violin, but I’m sure not many of us have ever heard of a viola. It’s actually a bit bigger than a violin. Viola sounds really denser than the violin. That’s why I really love it, especially in orchestras.
