There is a Leblanc paperclip listed in the BRASS listings on Ebay.  It is
listed as a ContraBass, but since I am a tuba player I can only say it is
big.  Was $281 a few minutes ago.

I´ve heard about a technique on violin and cello that enables the player to
play subharmonics one octave below the fundamental note of a string,thus
virtually extending the range of the instrument by an entire octave as well
as for special effects.Anybody know how this is achieved or how it sounds?
