Just browsing through the contrabass archives. I'm not subscribed, but I keep an eye on what's happening. Please pass my belated two cents to the list.
Grant - Glad you found JASA - that's the main journal for acoustics. You might also look out for:-

>Also,in band scores,what's really special about a"double-bell"euphonium??
>Is that a double-size bell, or does it have two bells??
Yup, it has one valve section and two bells; usually with euphonium/trombone profiles. These are called duplex instruments. See http://ic.net/~cmctuba/db/euph.html for how to make one.
>Reminds me of that old valve-trombone prototype, with a separate bell for each valve
I've seen pics of that. I believe it's not actually a trombone, but an evil mutant brass-based lifeform from another planet.
