Discriminating Orchestral Instruments with new CI

I have 12 years of classical music training; I spent 6 years in orchestras in HS and college. So...what can I hear now, with 2 CI's? I went on to an orchestra listening site ( to test what I could hear--what I could discriminate (just for fun).

The site gives you pictures of 4-5 instruments, and a sound clip about 2-3 seconds long. You click on the instrument you hear. WELL, I got 11 out of 14 correct--with just my new ear!!! Three weeks post activation!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

I'm a happy camper. :D :D

The instruments I got right on the first try were tuba, kettledrum, oboe, snare drum, cello, trumpet, flute, cymbals, double bass, trombone, and clarinet. The ones that took more than one try were french horn (I guessed violin and clarinet), bassoon (I guessed clarinet), and another one of clarinet (I guessed harp on that one). That was choosing from 4-5 instruments; usually it was very clearly NOT 2 of them.

I should go back and see if they give a different test when you go back--if the listing is random. It was fun.
