If you decide that you DO want a coiled one, I know where there's a double-octave low-D BBb contrabass curved metal LeBlanc;$2200.00 US.

Not coiled and to low C? Well, Leblanc makes a plastic "Vito/Holton" Model of it's student contrabass clarinet. It only goes down to Low Eb, and is straight. It retails for around US$2000.
But, I would really try to get a coiled one. Find a used Leblanc Curved Silver. You can at least play those in a normal sitting position. WIth the straight ones, you have to stand or sit in a bass chair.
Hope this helps.
