"What singles this book out is the sheer diversity of instruments covered this is a very welcome book. It is fair to say that the science of percussion instruments would not have advanced anywhere near so far without the tireless enthusiasm and passion of Rossing and his students."Nature, 2001"It forms a very nice survey work on an entire class of musical instruments I recommend it to anyone interested in acoustics and the physics of musical instruments."American Journal of Physics, Sept 2001

"What singles this book out is the sheer diversity of instruments covered ... this is a very welcome book. It is fair to say that the science of percussion instruments would not have advanced anywhere near so far without the tireless enthusiasm and passion of Rossing and his students." Nature, 2001 "It forms a very nice survey work on an entire class of musical instruments ... I recommend it to anyone interested in acoustics and the physics of musical instruments." American Journal of Physics, Sept 2001 "This book would be valuable to a music library as well as for the acoustical scientific community. The performing percussionist will find this text extremely valuable as to how percussion instruments make their sounds. This is an extensive, well researched text for percussion reference."
