Subject: Thomas mejer and other contra bass sax stuff

Hello, all of you Contra Bass Maniacs!!

First of all, I have been obsessed with contra bass instruments since I was 11, and I've done 2 years worth of research on contra bass saxes. I have almost every CD with a contra bass sax on it, I sax scott robinsons scene on TV, and I've talked with the owners of 3 or 4. What I am looking for is someone else who shares an interest in contra bass saxes and would like to help me fill in the blanks on my contra bass sax location list. I will take a lot of devotion, and time.

Also, I want to know if anyone has taped a contra bass sax anything. Anything that you have taped, I will buy.

Does anyone know where I could buy a copy of Thomas Mejer's CD? Its the only CD containing a CB sax that I don't have. Thanks.

Next, is anyone aware that you can buy a contra bass sax for the low low price of $37,000? Wow o wow.

Well, thanks, and you can E-mail me at: Barisaxjzz@aol.com

Subject: Octo Contra Bass Tuba

Ok, now, I got some questions on Octo contra bass tubas (OCBT's). I have E-mailed several people about them. And, I've snail mailed the owner of one. But, if anyone has any pictures of them, please, I will pay MONEY for them. I just want a look at this massive beast.

Thank you,
