For a biggie, try the fluid soundfont by Frank Wen: Go to hammersound.net,
then click on "Sounds" (top left), then "Soundfont Library" and finally on
"Collections" in the list. It's quite fat (roughly 149 MB unpacked), but
I believe it's quite complete GM/GS-wise.


Oh, before I forget: This archive might be compressed with a Windows
packer for which no Linux unpacker exists (either sfPack or sfArk). But
then I remember we had this issue before (roughly 2 years ago), and
though this is an older version, I remember I had asked a certain person ;)
to "cache" this file for those without Windows access... and yes, it's still
there: http://inanna.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~swh/fluid-unpacked/ :)
