Results are presented from a large-acceptance experiment in which muon-pair production was observed in the mass range 2 to 11 GeV/c2. Data were taken with K+, and p beams at 225 GeV/c on carbon, copper, and tungsten targets. Differential cross sections and the production dependence on pair mass, xF, pT, incident-particle type, and target nucleus are discussed.
