Here's a VERY RARE Gautrot Eb Baritone Sarrusophone.

The so-called 'combat bassoon' - there are not that many of these around, and they are a unique horn for your arsenal. With a tone that sounds like a bassoon crossed with a saxophone, and a much smaller bore than the Eb baritone saxophone, these instruments provide a great way for a woodwind specialist to play long melodic passages in the bass register while still retaining the rapid facility from a keyed instrument. Fingering is nearly identical to the saxophone - the only substantial difference is that it has three manual octave keys instead of an automatic octave key.

Condition-wise, this instrument is excellent. It has just been completely overhauled by Carlo Sbisa and plays GREAT! Bocal is clearly not original but it is from a Gautrot baritone sarrusophone. Plays well in tune at A-440 with a very even scale. Takes a baritone sarrusophone reed (of course) but a standard contrabassoon reed works well.
