Like with his bass saxophone, Benedikt Eppelsheim completely broke new ground with his redesign of the behemoth of the saxophone worth.

This is how he describes his revolutionary new contrabass on his website:

> Ebcontrabass saxophone to low A
> range A 3 F#6, sounding C1-A3
> 1 octave below the baritone saxophone
> 3 automatic octave keys
> additional altissimo register valve to written D 7, sounding F 4
> wide bore for a warm, voluminous tone
> large toneholes for a free response and a large dynamic range
> new neck design for less resistance
> precisely shaped bore taper for an exact intonation
> hydraulically formed neck and bows
> bass saxophone mouthpiece
> impressive overall height (177 cm = 70 inches) for more visual presence
> same fingering positions as on any modern saxophone
