    I have a few ;-)

    Heckelphone, sarrusophones (Bb tenor, Bb bass, and Eb contra), contrabass a anche ("reed contrabass"), ophicleide. I've actually had several performances on the bass and contra...

    Heckelphone!

    I performed last with the Ohlone Wind Orchestra (October 2012). They were playing a transcription of Holst's "The Planets", so I sat in on heckelphone (all the bass oboe parts were carried over...

    Heckelphone!

    I know Ohlone makes recordings: don't know if they record every concert.

    Sticky: More heat than an oboe

    Right now, "Bassoon on Fire" by Michael Rabinowitz :-)
  8. Heavy metal

    Metallica? You guys should check out Doctor Nerve. At least they have bass clarinet and soprano sax players as regular members ;-)

    4 or 5?

    A 5 string (usually) extends the range to low B. This not only lets you play a few steps lower, but also lets you finger patterns a bit higher up the neck, where the frets are closer together.

    Another system...

    Here's another (aimed more at jazz ensembles)...

    fingering differences

    Did anyone tell you about the altissimo vent on the bass clarinet? You (probably) have a small hole pierced in the middle of the LH1 key pad (where your left index finger goes), with a smaller key...

    Clarinets and Horns

    Let's not confuse the basset clarinet with the basset horn -- they are two different instruments. The basset clarinet is just a soprano clarinet (in C, Bb, or A) with range extended down to C. The...

    More rumbling :-)

    Great find!

    But looks like 3 baris, 1 bass to me...
  15. And if there is no life, there are no bass saxophones...

    Just a low Bb, reverberating into the void...
  16. How many decimal points do you want? ;-)

    Just consider it shorthand for "Very very probably (to a statistical almost-certainty) the first bass saxophone quartet in the observable universe" ;)
  17. One

    The Deep Schrott CD ("One") is now available. There is a link on their webpage (http://www.deepschrott.de/), or you can go straight to the label (http://www.poise.de/), and order using PayPal. I'm...

    pre-TSA

    In my student days, I used to carry a flute in my backpack when I flew. Apparently, it looks a lot like a pipe bomb on the xray machine...

    DCM

    The Dayton Miller collection also has an octave piccolo (i.e., 8va). It has a fairly crude wooden body, with keys spaced out enough for normal fingers: the pads are too close together for human...

    Orsi heckelphones?

    News to me! Heckel still makes heckelphones, and Guntram Wolf makes a bass oboe (to low F!) called the lupophone, but as far as I know, Orsi is concentrating on clarinets and (soprano) oboes these...

    Extra keys

    Looks like an alternate G#, and an Eb bis key (pad on top of pad). Interesting!

    Depends on the horn

    It really depends on just what horn you have. The Selmer and Leblanc contras have completely different bore diameters: the tenons may be interchangeable, but the results are not.

    I like the Fobes...
  25. No contras at present

    As far as I know, Leblanc is not making any low clarinets at present -- even basses. I understand that there are plans to reintroduce basses in another year or so, and a "redesigned" contra a year or...
