My favorites are the tabla, pakhawaj, and khol. I own those three in fact (all bolt tensioned, which is why I posted bolt tuned renditions of them).

Embarrassed
Here it is... back in 2002, when I got my first esraj and practicing without real knowledge of music. I recorded a small sample or Raga Dhani (which due to my poor fund of knowledge, turned into something sounding close to Bhimphalasi or some other Kafi thaat raga). The khol here is a Swarshala recording looped again to help me keep tala.

Khol aka mridanga is used for Manipuri dance and for its folk song too.
