Hey ther!
I was just wondering, since its also called a piccolo sax, does it sounds like a the piccolo?Then you think that a piccolo player like me can play this soprillo.I play the piccolo
Nigel says:
Why not listen to the audio clips and decide for yourself? It's a sax not a flute.

How much mouth pressure would you need for such a small instrument and mouth piece? I play alto sax, and bari sax, and clarinet, and I know clarinet requires much more than an alto or bari, but how much would you say a soprillo requires?
Nigel says:
You could try blowing an Eb clarinet - it's not the same but would give you a rough idea.

Hi Nigel,
looking forward to visit you and the NSC next weekend! I won't be playing the soprillo (just a bit to small for my likings), but I guess you will hear me on the tubax. I'm quite sure Sibbele will take his turn at the soprillo :-)

hi, i play soprano and alto. i started out in the alto for four years, and resently i got a soprano that i have been playing for 1 year, i really enjoy playing in the upper register, and the soprillo seems very fun, so i have two questins for you, is the soprillo extremly hard to play, and how much did it cost, in american money? thanks so much
Nigel says:
The soprillo is challenging to play and the 'fun' element is related to what you play musically rather than the amount of practise time attempting to get it in tune. I paid for mine with British pounds. You can enquire about prices from Eppelsheim or direct. (click on the banner above!)

i am playing soprano but i found out to night about soprillo wich i didn't know yet. Could i have the fingering chart to compare? And do you know if there is a way to find some second hand? (i am in France)
Thank you very much
Nigel says:
The fingering are like any other saxophone. Some of the highest notes may need slightly different fingerings but this may vary depending on the player and the instrument so it would be up to the individual to figure what works best for them. As for a second-hand soprillo, I can't imagine why anyone would part with their soprillo. But if anyone does have one, they are welcome to mention it here.
