    Tubax Saxophone
    Renaissance Recorder
    Piano Forte
    Sousaphone
    Serpent
    Bass marimba
    Bass vibraphone
    Chromatic woodblocks
    Waterphone
    Chinese miniature violin
    Foghorn
    Whiphorn
    Calliope
    Musical Saw
    Lute
    Stroviols
    Lyre
    Concertina
    Fanfare
    Bass trumpet
    Cornet
    Flugelhorn
    Flageolet

    Are there any more that I missed? I'm sure there are quite a few that I've not listed. I'd love to see these, they would be awesome additions to GPO Advanced/Big Band!

    I for one would love to see a serpent or its big brother the bass serpent (anaconda). But these things are just so rare.

    I'd loan my Eb Tenor "Peck" horn to the library if I ever find myself near Garritanland.
