How Much do Musical Instruments Cost?

Just for fun, I'm going to guess first, then Google for real prices:

Earl's Guesses
Triangle: $25
Flute: $100
Acoustic guitar: $150
Electric guitar: $300
Violin: $700
Bagpipes: $1000
Cello: $1500
Drum set: $2000
Upright piano: $10000
Grand piano: $25000
Pipe organ: $50000

Real Prices
Triangle: $65
Flute: $475-$7575
Acoustic guitar: $179-$8000
Electric guitar: $279-$7700
Violin: $315-$7525
Bagpipes: $900-$10000
Cello: $935-$12500
Drum set: $170-$4849
Upright piano: $???
Grand piano: $???
Pipe organ: $???

Well, I was way off on pretty much every guess, and I couldn't even find Edmonton pricing on pianos and pipe organs; I guess if you have to ask, you can't afford it!

I knew right off that your estimate for a flute was way off. That is what I paid for mine in high school and it was used. Want an affordable instrument? Try ukulele. They are easy to learn and beginner models are very reasonable. You can quickly learn to play three songs... My ABC's, Baa baa black sheep and Twinkle twinkle little star.
