[List] 100…Quick Descriptions for Musical Instruments

A sort of sneak preview today for some of the content from the next main PDF “Equipment Maker – Musical Instruments”. One of the features will be a way of coming up with a quick description for an instrument using the [descriptot] + [instrument] format. Orginally this was just going to be a stand-alone quick gen, but got a bit carried away and now have most the content done for it.  As with any other semi-random list, some of the descriptions might be more useful/accurate/sensible/etc. when compared to others.

Disagree with this list? Think something else should have gone on it? Post in the comments section or on the social media platform you saw this article.
