I currently play clarinet ,oboe, and bassoon. I want something new to try, and I can't decide what else to play. Any suggestions?

Personally, I think you should pick one instrument and become proficient on it. Playing many instruments is well and good, but unless you're an EXCEPTIONAL musician, it's difficult to become well versed on all of them. You become FAIR on many, but never being GOOD on one.

Just my thoughts.

Having said that venture into Flute. The fingering are similar to the oboe and clarinet. Bassoon isn't like any instrument as far as fingerings.
