Well, when I said that, I was referring to samples of extended
passages, loops, bass lines, and the like; I wasn't referring to
samples of individual instruments.  In fact, samples of
individual instruments are exactly what I was looking for (and
mostly failing to find).

That said, here's a few I did find:

http://www.virtualbassplayer.com/music.html
	(down and on the right, there's one-shot samples of
	a few basses)

http://www.midiworld.com/sounds.htm
	(various links off that page had some individual instrument
	samples)

http://internettrash.com/users/sampledirect/
	(some acoustic drum samples there)

http://www.samplenet.co.uk/
	(a fair number of one-note samples, but you really have to hunt
	for them; and no instrument is really complete)

http://theremin.music.uiowa.edu/MIS.html
	(only orchestral instruments, but they're all done in detail)

That would be cool.

No prob.  Thanks for the heads-up.
