Hey, I love the guide! One thing, though (sorry if I'm nitpicking sweatdrop ) - the saxophone is considered a woodwind instrument, rather than brass, because of the reed and key system. Brass instruments use a different kind of mouthpiece that you buzz into and you change the pitch either by using just your mouth (like a bugle), or they may have valves (like a trumpet) or a slide (trombone) instead of a key system.

I hope I'm not being obnoxious by pointing this out, just noticed that it was listed in a different family.

I also found a few instruments to add... for percussion:
*There are black and gold castanets that I don't think are on the list yet.
*Vivacenote also has a tambourine in addition to the zither.
*Carol of Ol' Nick has that bell.
*Bell Choir gloves from last year's Xmas event.

And I guess maybe under brass or "other" ... all the different colours of vuvuzelas, which are usually just used as noisemakers but can be played sort of like a didgeridoo by someone who knows what they're doing.

I'll keep an eye out for any more!

Thank you smile
I see, it's okay. I didn't really know of the non-brass parts of the saxophones sweatdrop
Oh, I didn't really think about the bells, but true, they count as ones. Now I remember the CD I have of instruments (Microsoft Musical Instruments) included chimes and similiar instruments. And some blow instruments like a big shell or the didgeridoo you mentioned.
I will add them to the list, thank you for the help smile

I just noticed also, Global Imports has spicy, mild, and cool maracas that would go under percussion too.
