Subject: [CB] The Bass Harmonicas are back...

For anyone interested in bass harmonicas, there are a few on eBay at the moment.

A Tombo "Contrabass" at
(my understanding is that this is really more of a tenor/baritone instrument - low for a harmonica, but not as low as the Hohner double bass).

A Victory "Octave Bass" at  I'm not familiar with the brand, but the harp appears to be designed much like the Hohner instrument, and laid out identically to it.
