Please tell me why an outdoors shot looks great but my lighting shots are terrible?

Try this style

On your indoor shotm leaft the light coming in from the left as is. Use a large softbox to the right of your camera (just next to it, slightly higher than the lens), about 1 stop less light than the main. Also try a snooted, out of focus light from the left, so it illuminates the background, giving a soft flood light look behing the instrument. This helps to define the edges of the instrument.
