Hey Brian,

Yes, it would be difficult to list every manufacturer, but I think the main players such as Roland, Korg, Gibson, etc should have a simple listing. The main point is to direct anyone who is looking, directly at the manufacturers' site, rather than have them scramble around the internet looking for re-sellers whom we know nothing about.

I've always bought directly from Roland and Sony, for example, as I feel "trust" in the parent company to fix any problems rather than a re-seller whose reputation I'm unsure of.

The recording software side is pretty much covered, with the mainstream reputable companies listed. Perhaps a listing of the main instrument manufacturers would also help out also.
