<< Strange, eh?  Looks like a baritone mouthpiece.  When I inquired at that site (Saxofoonwinkel, the Netherlands) for info they sent me this reply:

Hello Jay

The tubax is made by hand one at the time
we don't have them in our shop and I don't know what it cost
You can contact Benedikt Eppelsheim
in Munchen / Germany
Tel 0049 8929163889
Paul Kortenhorst

I read somewhere that they sell for about half the price of the LA Sax/Orsi horns.
If you follow up on this, I'd love to know what you find out.
Regards, Jay >>

I'm doing a full article on Eppelsheim, with his Tubax and tiny Soprillo (Bb
sopranino) in the next issue of the Saxophone Journal. Amazing horns, both.

Subject: Geographical distribution of contrabass clarinets

Currently some preliminary plans are being laid to present in Bucharest a
symphonic scherzo of mine whose score calls for a contrabass (BB-flat)
clarinet. There's some talk that I may have to substitute a contrabassoon
since there may be no contrabass clarinets in Romania. Does anybody know of
any, and of anyone who could play it? A few days ago I was reading about the
Bratisalava recording of Brian's "Gothic" Symphony and how they had to cheat
on the basset horns and the contra-clarinet since they couldn't find any
there--strange for a city so close to Vienna.
