REALLY REALLY enjoyed those videos/sound samples from Edinburgh....makes me appreciate the soprillo even more!

I discovered a new toy to combine with the soprillo sax! Bought an Aulos Garklein recorder. The "lowest" C,is two octaves ABOVE middle C!! Now to try soprillo and garklein duets! Happy, Healthy Holidays to all!

Hi! I am a high schooler in the United States, and I play the Alto Saxophone and the Soprano saxophone in my high school band. I'm slowly collecting saxes...And I was aiming for a tenor next but then I heard the soprillo. Amazing! I can honestly say it's one of the most amazing instruments I have ever heard, and you do an OUTSTANDING job of playing it. I have a few questions about the instrument. One, do you know where I can get one? As a saxophone player It's almost irrisistable to me... and Two, how long did it take you to get as good at it as you are? Thanks!
Nigel says:
Q: do you know where I can get one?
A: details below on this page.
Q: how long did it take you to get as good at it as you are?
A: I've had the Soprillo a year now. Practise and patience (and tolerant neighbours).

As the player of a clarinet, Eb clarinet, flute, and piccolo, I love soprano instruments,the more compact the better. I can only hope that one day I can be united with the one instrument that actually COMPETES with the piccolo.

When you say "...although notes above G require different fingerings to regular saxophones..." do you mean on G with the octave key, or on both octaves?
Nigel says:
I sometimes use alternative fingerings just for the top octave (above G). I'm still experimenting and it depends on the context.
