Subject: The bass oboe is back...

It appears that the seller is listing the bass oboe again, this time with
no reserve, but with a starting bid of US$3600... See

While we're at it, there's a Selmer contra at,
advertised as a "quantra bass", but looks like a contralto to me.

Also, another Selmer contra at

Also, a Martin bass sax (starting bid $4K, no bids yet) at

And finally, another bass sax (starting bid $6.5K, likewise no bids) at .
Both of the bass saxes will be over in a couple of days: maybe with luck,
nobody will bid, and they'll be offered again at a lower starting bid...
