Definitely. As long as its simply not "drums" under another name, it probably is very unique.

really? you play the tabla? That's pretty cool. My grampa plays it. 071394658, it's not just drums, its a specialized type with a totally different sound than snare or bass or tympany(don't know how to spell that) drums.

Hmmm, do you think playing the ukulele, like actually playing jazz and classical music on the ukulele is considered a rare instrument? Since there are not too many ukulele groups, I dont even know if the uke qualifies as a good instrument, but I play it a lot. Any thoughts on how ukulele playing might affect college applications? By the way, as a percussionist, I love the tabla...
