Hello and BRAVO ! nice work !!!

as a composer I probably wrote the first piece for soprillo (january 2004) for Jay Easton : Five Preludes for Jay Easton's Amazing Instruments (and five horns : soprillo, A clarinet, subcontra-sax, contralto clarinet, F-mezzo soprano saxophone).

feel free to contact me !
a new work for soprillo and piano will come soon too.

Regards,
Olivier

Wondering if you would be so kind as to put up your fingerings for notes above G. I find that those tend to be quite sharp and less controllable than those below. On the sopranino, it's easier to maintain a better pitch center. What do you suggest?

Nigel, I love your site. The soprillo is an amazing instrument and it sounds great. I never thought it would be possible to make.

All you need now is the Eppelsheim B-flat subcontrabass saxophone and have some fun at the bottom end of the piano :)

Some pictures and a sound clip of the subcontrabass:

I can't believe this exists...I had only heard rumors hear and there. The soprano seems so low now!

I really appreciate the website. I'm the proud owner of a Soprillo, Eb Tubax, and Bb bass sax, all by Benedikt Eppelsheim.

Just received my soprillo for Eppelsheim--#42! It plays up a storm! had t practice on my Ab sopranino clarinet(LeBlanc) and my Eb curved sopranino(orsi) to get the embouchure for the highest notes. Planning on writing for 2 big bands here, using the extreme saxes. Should be fun!
