Just as advertised, good physical resource

Comments:

You get exactly what it says- numbers, players and instruments. Certainly saves time planning but for the percussionist this information is available for free from many resources online. This is probably the most useful for teachers/directors/stage managers, allowing very fast planning for percussion needs. I do not recommend the hefty purchase for performers necessarily but for administration type people this would be an invaluable resource.
