I recently saved up enough for a new cello, so I'm having fun with that. Right now though I'm saving for a different stand for it. I'm also a bit tempted to save up for a guitar. I don't particularly care for guitar, but there's music that I want to play, and can only find guitar tabs for. >_>;

I have enough to improve with my technique for the instruments i'm already playing, without adding anything else to complicate it.

Look up note positions so you can transcribe it, or there are plenty of cheap guitars floating around if you want something physical to use for transcribing.

I can't play brass but I've heard a pBone close up and handled one. It was pretty good. I don't know about plastic trumpets.

Being a trombone player and having played a pBone as well I will say that they are remarkably similar. However don't use the plastic mouth piece it comes with. Go out and by a regular metal small bore trombone mouth piece. It'll sound much better instantly

HO WOW ANOTHER CELLIST!!! If you want, I can help you find (or arrange) the sheets you need, I love doing that! :D
I'm saving for a Takashi double and a celtic harp (22 strings) http://www.pixieharps.com/22-string-heather-harp/ to celebrate the end of my studies (May 27th). I want to make more multitrack videos and play in parks just for fun :) I'm also saving for a new computer and HD camera with a good micro to make better videos.

Sometimes I play pizz on my cello, I love this sound and where I live I cannot make too much noise...

There is also the Vibrato plastic saxophone but i can get a brass saxophone for about the same price as those.

I was looking at the plastic saxes a while ago. Those are pretty cool.
