Joachim says:
Dear Nigel,
How hard is it to play? I have a sopranino which I had for a couple of months and still can not reach above B. When I first got it I could not go beyond F so I am getting there. I assume the soprillo is even harder to play?
Nigel says:
Dear Joachim,
Your assumptions are correct. If you are still struggling to get higher than sopranino top B you will find it considerably more challenging to play the soprillo in the upper register. Most saxophonists can get up to the top G on the soprillo family quickly but above that takes much perseverance. Having said that, it is of course achievable as long as you don't expect immediate results. Hope that helps.

Would be good for Piazzolla arrangements, replacing the violin part the range of which an Eb clarinet barely reaches.

What is the highest note you can hit on a soprillo? And why does the soprillo only go up to an Eb instead of an F, F# or sometimes a G?

Bailey says:
Can I practise the soprillo but only have a try in soprano before

Can I practice soprillo first before have my own soprano?
Nigel says:
You could of course but I wouldn't recommend it.
