I know this is a long list but it pains me to not have these instruments, especially the marching percussion because you cant really arrange for marching band with out them

MARCHING BAND PERCUSSION
Cymbal Line* (5 players)
I--as well many others, I'm sure--would really like Noteflight to look into adding some new instruments, particularly HAND CLAPPING and the DJEMBE (traditional African drum). I typically use Noteflight as a source of--not only looking at the sheet music--but also having the capabilities of hearing it, too. This way, I can BOTH look and listen to a particular piece I'm learning, which is extremely helpful! However, there's a particular song I'm learning in choir called "Nda wana," and it's a traditional African song with all vocal parts, yet also includes hand clapping and the djembe. It's rather difficult for me to include those 2 instruments when there isn't an option in Noteflight for them. I've tried countless other instruments that Noteflight does offer that sound very similar, but when I put it all together, it just doesn't sound right. So, it would be a HUGE help if there were some new additional instruments, particularly HAND CLAPPING and the DJEMBE! Thank you! :)
The Euphonium needs love, too.

Please add Tubular bells as well!
People in noteflight should have every instrument from all aroud the world beacuse some people from different places (China, England Togo, New Zealand, Mexico, Chile, etc.) may want the instrment they have in their country or city.

Please add C Melody saxophone to your list of instruments. C Melody saxophones have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity. I personally play C Melody saxophones almost exclusively.

I agree there needs to be a pipe organ sound--not the cheesy Hammond thing that's already there
Susan Gindra commented
and handbells, for which scores there are particular rules: or example, middle 'C' is always in the treble clef.
As it stands, the closest approximation to this reedy sound is the basic viola.
Yes! could you also add Tuba and French Horn?
Marco Campedelli commented
Yes, I also love accordion, flugelhorn, harmonica, organ and ... theremin!
Gabi Rodgers commented
please add tubular bells!! they are my favorite percussion instrument!!!
it warms my heart to see BASS TROMBONE on this list. yes!
Matthew K commented
A better organ instrument (pipe organ) would be appreciated. Organ and Organ (Electric) are identical. I get around this by using Tuba.

Many elementary school have descant recorders, and barred instruments. Having a Bass and tenor xylophone, Bass and tenor
metallophone, and triangle would help immensely. Being able to listen to the sounds as they learn to read the notes would help their learning. Thanks for considering this suggestion.

Good idea! :)
I think it would be cool and interesting to see what others will come up with.
PLEASE ADD ORGAN! In interstellar it is used and it's beautiful ;)
Also better brass, floor drum/toms, and slide strings(sliding up sound for effect and buildup)
I also really need Tubular bells for my next song
The accordion is a overlooked instrument and on the rise again. This would be a great addition and appreciated
I think that noteflight should have a wider range of instruments. I really want to try composing with an erhu, sitar, and a wide range of cultural instruments. also add electric string instruments and the ability to apply certain effects to them and electric guitars such as delay, reverb, and many more.
