I wonder if it isn't like coloring. When we're little we start off with a box of 4 or 8 Crayons. Then we move to 16, then 64 then 128 as we discover the nuances between blue-green, green-blue, and cornflower. Tone and sound differences we can hear may be a thing we develop similarly with experience with our instruments.
What's cool is you can make interesting art with 4 Crayons or with 128. Same thing with inexpensive and very expensive instruments.
Enjoy the ride. Playing doesn't have to be a destination. It can be a process.
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. Logan Pearsall Smith, 1865 - 1946
