-- [ From: Mark Trinko * EMC.Ver #2.5.3 ] --

Actually it was quite nice to have the Contrabass-List quiet for a while
.  I only wish the IDRS-L and doublereed-L would quiet down a little.

Subject: lower saxes

I was just reading the saxophone pattent and came across a question.  If
Sax thought that the lower saxes would prove the most useful, by lower I
mean bari downwards, then why do we never see these instruments.  Also if
the subcontrabass sax was actually in the original pattent why has none
ever appeared, other than the Conns which are still elusive.  (I won't
mention the "fake")

Just wondering,
Bret Newton
