Do you know where I could get parts like side key guards etc.
Thanks for time.

Answer
Hi Rey,

Bass sax?? Really?  Wow! Bass saxes are rare and it may be tough to find what you're looking for, but here are a few suggestions:

The first is to contact the folks at Woodwind & Brasswind (866-514-7200) and http://www.wwbw.com/.  They're experts and may at least be able to steer you in the right direction even if they might not have in stock the exact parts you want.

The second is to look on e-bay for horns and parts. You'll be surprised at what's out there if you poke around.  Again, you may not find an exact match but you might find something that works.

Lastly - if you find a good sax restorer in your area he may enjoy the challenge of locating the part(s) you need (those guys get off on that kind of stuff!).

Here are 2 places that also might help and are worth contacting:

http://www.saxquest.com/repair-shop

http://www.lowkeymusic.com/low_key_musical_repair_018.htm

These are not the sort of things that you can simply drive some where to buy.  I'm sorry I couldn't be more help!
