Just noticed this on the BrookMays instrument classifieds:

"FOX CONTRABASSOON FOR SALE:  3 weeks old. Still as new. Has C to Eflat
rollers and right first finger Eflat. Also has additional first octave key.
Just bought new and found out symphony is purchasing their own. Price is
firm at $14,200.00 plus half shipping.

Contact John Upchurch 512-444-9296 or 512-497-9650"

The URL is

The same person is also selling a Loree English Horn:  "Excellent
condition. Beautiful tone and very even scale. Serial # JD14. Comes with 2
bocals, double case,and cover. $4,800.00 plus shipping. Will consider
partial trade for lesser price/quality english horn."


Both are currently a bit out of my price range, though sorely tempting.

The auction site, eBay, also has a few interesting items:

Reynolds Contempora Eb 3 Valve detatchable Bell front Tuba, starting bid
$300, URL =

C.G.Conn Ltd. Bari Sax ser#139,621, current bid $250, URL =

Have at it!
