Discussion

The capitalisation isn't always consistent: you have Bass clarinet but Bass Trombone, Alto saxophone but Alto Violin, etc. Also, what's "Aracaic"? --Nikki

  • I thought that does not matter at all because AR only displays lower case anyways? --Shepard

The current list on this page doesn't reflect the list of instruments on the live site. I've created a file which marks all errors instead of updating this page myself since I don't know what the current status of the situation is. -- Prodoc 11:50, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
