In my view.. among all the indian instruments , Sarengi is the most difficult instrument ... becuase the first reason there is no frat ... second thing one has to run his two hands equally in opposite direction one vertically other is horizontally. one hand will be running the bow and the other will search for tune that too with the just below nail portion. In whole country there are countable sarengi players at present .

Violin is the second most difficult intrument as it has also no frat .one has to learn how to find out notes with perfection with the help of bow .

Every musical instrument is easy to learn, but hard to master.

At present it appears to be Rudraveena or Saraswati Veena in its traditional forms. You may still find some Sarangi players, more so in Pakistan, but after Asad Ali Khan Sahab, there is no one.

The toughest musical instrument is Didgeridoo.
Difficulty factors: Hard to build, impossible breathing technique, sound varies from instrument to instrument, Noise to music gap is wide, practice tolerance by others - low
- Aboriginal craftsmen spend considerable time searching for a suitable tree to make into a didgeridoo. The difficult part is in finding a tree that has been suitably hollowed out by termites. If the hollow is too big or too small, it will make a poor quality instrument. Then, you have to learn circular breathing where you have to breath in through the nose while breathing out through the mouth.
