Post Housepets Musicians Discussion Thread
Around last month, I did a fanart involving Peanut playing a cello, supposedly as the start of series. The series would revolve around my own personal opinion on what musical instrument would each and every Housepets character if all of them were musically-inclined.

Well, long story short, I tried, but ended up more frustrated with my inadequacies in drawing musical instruments and their players together. Yet I still felt like I need to state my opinions. Thus I think it’s better for me to just list them out here and let everyone discuss it to their heart's content, or even add their own opinions!

This list will be updated as often as I got the inspiration or ideas, because I haven’t set one for everyone yet, as well as all ideas from everyone!

1) Peanut Butter Sandwich
• Instrument: Cello
• Preferred music genre: Classical music (though open to all styles)
• Image song:
a) Cello Suite No. 1i Prelude - Bach


2) Grape Jelly Sandwich
• Instrument: Drums, Bhodran
• Preferred music genre: Thrash metal, but due to both Max’s and Peanut’s influences, beginning to warm up to classical music and jazz
• Image song:
a) Holy Wars… The Punishment Due – Megadeth


3) Maxwell
• Instrument: Double bass, Bass guitar/saxophone
• Preferred music genre: Jazz, Blues
• Image song:
a) Voile, the Magic Library – ARATO
• Note: I can’t find the exact songs which reminds me of Max, so this will have to do =w=

4) Tarot
• Instrument: Flute
• Preferred music genre: (none as of yet)
• Image song:
a) Lugia’s Song/The Guardian’s Song – Ralph Shuckett

5) Spirit Dragon

10) Joey & Squeak
• Instrument: Initially acoustic guitar (Joey), then moved on to synthesizers and Vocaloids, and a DJ turntable.
• Preferred music genre: Techno, and anything related to it

Cool. This topic was needed to be discussed. Though I'll still be firmly about what I said before:

Peanut – Sax
Grape – Bass
Max – Trumpet / Vocalist
Bino – Triangle (or some other silly instrument)
Fox – Harmonica
King – Acoustic Guitar
Tarot – Harp
Sabrina – Lyre / Vocalist
Fido – Bongo drums
Ralph – Snare drum
Kevin – Electric guitar
Rex – Drum set
Sasha/Keys – Piano
Fiddle – Violin

I used to play the Viola and Euphonium actually, so I align greatly with Fox here, YAY!!

I have to disagree with Grape though... I see her as a bit calmer than the drums, not such a frenetic spirit.I see her as more in line with the trumpet or saxophone actually. Something that is smooth, and yet at the same time can be quite versatile and loud.

King I see more as a xylophone player, just because I want to see him running around on a giant xylophone trying to hit all of the keys.

In all honesty, I'm only familiar with Japanese musical instruments, the strings and percussion sections of an orchestra, and some other instruments, so my allocations are pretty much biased. Add the fact that most of the music I listen to are either from Final Fantasy, Touhou, some games and some classical pieces, and you get a cast leaning too much on the classical side of things. :P

Fido, Bino and Joey's initial instrument is the guitar because.... well, I kinda have a fanfic idea involving their musical beginnings and why they diverged in the end.

I still stick to the opinion that Grape is a drummer. Physical violence as an answer initially, but mellowing out and adapting to the more controlled and smooth playing that both jazz and classical music require.

I think King is forced to play both oboe and double bassoon because from my readings, both these instruments are some of the hardest ones to play in an orchestra, and Pete wanted an accompaniment to his pipe organ.

Heh, guess everyone's insisting that Max is made for the saxophone. I'll have to agree too.

Anyways, I'm not sure whether the first post should include all the speculations, or one that everyone can agree on? I don't want to impose my opinions up there.

And I found the image song for King!
