Good information but horrible sound quality

It's a cool video on latin percussion, I wish we could have more in this platform but, please with a better sound quality, this sounds like being recorded with an old nokia mobile phone.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi,
Thanks for your feedback. This is a legacy tutorial from the Hal Leonard DVD archives and although the audio is less than optimal, we agree with you that it is a cool video with lots of value, so we wanted to get it added to the library for everyone’s enjoyment.
With that said, we always want to bring the best quality we can, even with a legacy release, and try to remaster the audio when possible.
