Bassoon. It has so much character. I still find myself "channeling" bassoon when playing classical tenor - either that or the cello. I played the bassoon through high school and college (well, one of the colleges I attended). Listen to some good bassoon recordings. How can you not love the instrument?

BTW, if you find yourself thinking that the oboe is close enough to the saxophone that the fingerings are similar, that's a good reason NOT to play it. You really need to treat double reeds as their own entity. If you don't, you will never master them.
