Hi Grant,

THe only curved Sopranino I know belongs to Paul Cohen. Who had the one at
San Jose?

Just curious,

LA Sax makes a curved sopranino sax, I just saw one at the Mid-West band and
orchestra convention (along with several bass flutes, oboe d'amores and a
musette in Eb, but nothing else too exciting).  I also talked with some
people from LeBlanc who informed me that rumors of the contra clarinets'
death are greatly exaggerated.  They said all 4 contras they make are still
being produced; the body's in France, and the keywork in Kenosha.
