I was talking with a fellow bassoonist tonight and contras came up. He felt that if one has a contra and you can play it, you'd automatically get more gigs. You might have to travel a bit, but once the word got out, you'd get work.

Do you feel that's true? I don't deny that contras are rare, but are there that many places that would want to use a contra in the first place that would go to the trouble of hiring you?

And what are the most common pieces that would use a contra?
