Best SID instrument?

Well, topic kinda says all.
The tune itself doesn't have to be good at all, only the instrument(s). ;)

'Impulse' by Taki has some pretty awesome 16x drums.
And just to make it a bit less complicated to choose instruments: NO SAMPLES.

Drums of Tune 1 were pretty impressive at its time and still belongs to best no-sample/digi/multispeed drums. probably (did not look) does write more than once per frame but at least it's not necessary to call Player more than once per frame.

Ingame tune (5) has also pretty neat instruments

Wow!

A bit similar to my Rocco Siffredi flute (yeah, I know how it sounds xD) but definitely better and more breathy ;)

Not very special in it self, but
Break Street
Is that an arpeggio at 2:04? Not very common for a 1984 tune..

Yeah. Coincidentally we're having a conversation about earliest arps over on chipmusic.org and I brought up Bob Landwehr's stuff. (and Galway's Kong Strikes Back which is the same year)

That snare sounds like Rockmonitor, and it is pure 6x speed tune. Good work Jan!
