I was disappointed in the product. This is the first time I have purchased one of the "100 ..." documents and I was expecting a bit more. Just a list of names. I expected a sentance or two to accompany the name to at least give an idea of what the instrument is. Some are obvious just because of its ubiquity, but others I would have to look up to even get an idea if the instrument was wind, stringed, percussion, etc. If I need to look them up, then I don't need the list and can just google for musical instruments.

It is what it advertised - a list of 100 instruments. But just names?!? For this reason, I will probably not purchase any further "100 ..." products.

Sorry to disappoint, Dwayne. I would caution anyone reading this to check the item description before purchasing. Some of our lists are exactly as Dwayne describes - just 100 names, while others have many more details. The samples given in the product descriptions are an accurate representation of what is included. I can\'t do a refund, but email chris@lees-lists.com and I\'ll hook you up with another list of your choice, if you\'d like to give us a second chance.

This is an excellent eclectic collection of musical instruments to keep any bard character entertained as he decides what to play in his next concert... and there are some really unusual ones that are maybe better suited to a far future campaign - after all, there will still be a need for musical entertainment.

It can be amusing in game too... I once put a #35: Laser Harp in the corner of an abandoned alien spaceship some of my Traveller characters were investigating and had quite a lot of entertainment as they tried to figure out what it was from the description. (If you don't know, watch a Jean Michel Jarre concert, it's the laser beam array that he 'plays' by breaking the beam with well-gloved hands!)

Some are more or less different names for the same thing. A Moog is just a kind of synthesizer, for example. And someone needs to pay attention to odd characters, as the A-sharp (or is it A-flat?) clarinet has come out as A? clarinet which leaves me little the wiser (possibly like the seagull which has just perched on top of the chimney on the Sistine Chapel roof - I'm writing this as the Papal election is in progress with a webcam window open to check for smoke!).

Pass me my Balalaika and I'll play you a tune!
