Although iGMNS can be used with regular music staff lines, iGMNS has its own sheet music, which incorporates the DL (drum line) between the music staff lines. iGMNS can be used for drum sets and for drums such as cajOn, cowbell, cymbal, doumbek, conga, tabla, shekere, and udu. Because iGMNS is not dependent on any particular language, it is culturally neutral and international.
