Sandy Advice on instruments (19) Advice on instruments 13 Mar 98

I'm considering learning a new instrument and can't decide what. I play the Great Highland Bagpipes and Scottish small pipes and (trying not to be conceited or arrogant) I play to a pretty high standard. I've thought of a fiddlle/violin (what's the difference?) or a piano (have piano will travel doesn't quite work) or a clarinet or Uilean pipes.

Type of music doesn't really matter though I'm mostly into folk, classical and Jazz.

Has anyone got any ideas or advice regarding difficulty to play, types and cost of instrument and how long it will take to get to a reasonable high standard.

I can't make up my mind. Help would be appreciated.
