Topic: Looking for: Amati contrabassoon end pin assembly.
I'm looking high and low for an end-pin assembly for an early model Amati contrabassoon. Is there anyone out there in bassoon-land who knows how to acquire an entire assembly (meaning the pin and the frame that attaches to the instrument) from Amati? I've been unsuccessful trying to contact their sales rep here in the US.
Short of that, is there anyone out there that knows how to construct such an assembly?
Any other ideas for propping up a contra on a non-slip object of some sort?
