Right, so is it practice in reading the notes above and below the stave that you're after? That makes sense. @jbtsax gives some guidance on this in comment No 5

I don't have the answer to your precise question, but if what you're looking is how one would 'write the dots' for passages in the altissimo register, then I believe this video would give some clues Moanin' (Leo P's solo).

I'm still at a bit of a loss to see what the point is. People don't write stuff using 9 ledger lines. No one could read it.

For ease of reading when notes go beyond 3 or 4 ledger lines above the staff they are often written an octave lower than they sound with 8va written above. For notes below the bass clef staff they are written an octave higher with 8va bassa or 8vb written below. @tenorviol is the expert on these types of things since he plays cello.
That's why technically the double bass (and bass guitar) are transposing instruments - they sound a octave lower than written, to avoid 8vb or leger lines
