If I remember right (I should program a key macro for that phrase...), Keith Loraine makes not only reeds to fit any conceivable horn, he'll do bocals as well. You should expect to send your horn to Petaluma - about an hour north of San Francisco, but there are plenty of vineyards to visit while you're there ;-). All the info is at http://windworld.com/loraine/ (should look familiar, Scott!). Under "Repairs", he mentions "Crooks made for all instruments": "crooks" = "bocals".
