I've enjoyed reading about the "exploits" of contrabass musicians; however, I do not yet have a contrabass instrument (though I played the bass clarinet and soprano clarinet on the GWAR "Scumdogs" album) and I don't know when I'll find a double B flat Contrabass Clarinet, so I would respectfully like to withdraw from your e-mailing list until such time as my band (Tennessee Jackson Ward: affords me the income that would warrant the purchase of such an instrument, until then, Thanks!
