Subject: RE: 1916 Conn Bari Sax

Not so long ago; maybe a year ago if I remember correctly; I was lucky
enough to venture upon a 1907(!) Conn Silver-plate (original; 95% intact)
bari-sax with nearly no dents and the original case at a humongous indoor
flea market near my home.  The price was $300; and the only catch was a
missing neck...  unfortunately; when I returned with the cash the next day;
the instrument was gone.  I wish I could stumble upon more deals like that!

I saw this in the local (St. Petersburg Times)

Conn Baritone Sax from 1916 in playing condition with case.  $725

(727) 446-2325.  (Clearwater Florida)

I haven't seen it, but if someone is really interested in it and wants
someone to look at it to verify condition etc., I would be happy to do
what I can.

Subject: Contrabass dulcian


A few month ago I made pictures of a contrabass and a quartbass dulcian
made by Guntram Wolf.  You can find them now on my web site:
Especially the contrabass is an impressive instrument.
Grant, the contrabass dulcian is not in your list of big instruments, did
you know that!

Have fun,
