Interesting to have found this site about such a highly unusal instrument.
Didn't even know before that there is such a thing like a soprillo sax.

Dear Nigel,
I have really enjoyed the sounds of soprillo on your site.
Any news on the progress of your soprillo CD?
Nigel says:
Thank you.
'Soprillogy' should be unleashed around the end of July/August. I'll post a notice on the site here when it's ready. I've just added a clip on Youtube which you may find interesting.

Just wondered. I saw the case of the soprillo and it looks like it could be made smaller and more compact. Why do you leave so much unused space there?
Nigel says:
I don't make the soprillo or case. I'm told by Mr Eppelsheim that the case is made that size in order to ensure adequate transport security. It couldn't get much smaller anyway.

why did you choose soprillo
Nigel says:
Because I like the sound (and it fits neatly in my pocket).
Why did you choose to be anonymous?

My soprillo has the serial #92 and is 2-3 years old. Any idea how many of them exist? Thanks!
Nigel says:
The serial numbers count the total number of Eppelsheim instruments (without Kontraforte and first prototypes).
66 Soprillos are in circulation at present. Mine is #82. I feel a soprillo congress coming on...

Lisa says:
How big range is it on the soprilo? And, is it the same fingering as on an altosaxophone?

(Sorry for my english, not the best.)
Nigel says:
low Bb to top Eb. Your alto sax goes to a top F#. The fingerings are basically the same although customised fingerings are necessary for the highest notes
