How many instruments can I actually play?

Someone asked me this yesterday so I did a quick tally:

Instruments I can play to an advanced/professional level:
Flugel Horn
Soprano Cornet
Piccolo Trumpet

Instruments I own and can play to a reasonable amateur level:
Tenor Horn
French Horn
Natural Trumpet

Instruments I own and have a basic ability on:
Guitar (8 or 10 chords and a bit of picking)
Voice (tenor -  amateur standard)

Instruments I can pick up and get some sort of useful tune out of:
All of the other brass instruments

So I can't play any reed instruments or stringed instruments that are played with a bow.
