 Contra basses

I play bass clarinet in a couple of concert bands. One of my band mates is an instrument technician with a Vito BBb contra bass which needs some work. He keeps saying he's going to make the necessary repairs and asked if I might be interested in it. It's been a LONG time since I played around w/ a contra and thought it might be fun to get one to play from time to time. I've check w/ the directors of both bands and they both say they would welcome the addition. This lead me to research contras online..... I've seen a few Le Blanc 342's, 340's (paperclip, I believe) and a boatload of newer models which don't interest me ($$$$). I would appreciate any input regarding the older Le Blanc's 340s, 342s, Vitos, etc. Which to avoid? Which to look for, etc etc. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
