Each note is numbered, so finding the same number in each scale will give you the exact same pitch. Then adjust for octave if necessary:

(Bb Clarinet, Bb Trumpet, Soprano Sax, Tenor Sax, Baritone (T.C.), Bb Flugelhorn, Bb Cornet:

E-FLAT INSTRUMENTS:
(Alto Clarinet, Alto Sax, Eb Horn, Baritone Sax, Eb Tuba(T.C.):

F-INSTRUMENTS:
