Hi there,

I'm pretty new to the list. I recal the person who was asking for
arrangements with bass sax......  (a buddy of mine owns one, and let me
give a blow a while back...boy, was it cool!...and, btw, "no", my friend
is not interested in selling it) now back to the original issue: have a
look at the Nuclear Whales  website. They are an awesome sax ensemble,
to say the least.  In addition many other things, they also sell copies
of their arrangements, and most of their arrangments include bass sax.
They also even have some arrangements that include contrabass sax (one
of their members owns a silver Buffet Crampon Contrabass Sax!).

Also while I am at it, does anyone have any tips on adjusting the
double-sprung 'swizzle stick' mechanism that is used by the automatic
octave key arrangement on Bundy Contra-Alto clarinets.  I figured I
should ask around for some suggestions before I take a good look at it.
(I do work on soprano clarinets all the time, but have't worked much on
my contra).  My Contra-Alto is having issues with quite a few major
issues high-notes (above G on the top of the staff)...and I've
determined the mechanism is out of alignment.  Any advice is greatly
