Agree that recorder is missing. I missed the sarrusophone family completely. But Subcontrabass Tubax in BB flat or CC, are you kidding me? Is that something only Elephants can hear?

Bagpipes? The whole recorder family? Pennywhistle?

And if we want to get real crazy, how about the krumhorn family, at least as obtainable as the lupophones or heckelphones.

And throw in the vuvuzela, just for kicks and giggles.

Heh, 8.5 years later and I'm just now coming back to this. I would add a lot more that I missed if I made a new one!
