sopranino

  1. Sopranino and Higher
    I've become interested in buying a sopranino sax, and want to purchase a Selmer clone. I know both Kessler and Allora have discontinued their sopraninos. The only sopranino I've heard much about is the R&H Sax Sopranino, the SNS-730L at http://www.raresaxs.com/, but that appears to be a yani...
  2. Ligatures
    So I've been playing on the metal Yanagisawa sopranino mouthpiece and looking for a ligature. The mouthpiece appears to be a similar size to the HR nino pieces but can't be sure. Anyone have any experience in finding other ligatures for this piece that fit?
  3. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I recently found this sopranino at an estate state sale, however I am unable to find anything about it online. There is no serial number anywhere on the horn- only a seal of the Coat of Arms and "C. Mahillon & Co. London & Brussels " engraved under it. Does anyone know about it- what year...
  4. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Just curious as there is an Orsi for sale on eBay, and the seller is fairly local. I can't afford to drop that much on something that will VERY rarely be played (Amanda already has a straight 'nino that gathers dust), but it made me wonder if there is a price range for these rare horns.
  5. Sopranino and Higher
    I had an extra Soprano stand, a three-leg K&M, which works fine for the Soprano but a bit wobbly for the Nino, which doesn't fit all the way down to be secure. I've tried a few product searches at the usual suspects but didn't find anything. Anyone have a recommendation?
  6. Sopranino and Higher
    Ron Meyer from starvingmusicsupplies is selling old stock Vandoren nino reeds, strength 3, at a very good price IMO on ebay at the moment. I have no business with Ron, but he's been a reliable seller to me (eg Riffault mouthpieces, cheap yet consistent alto reeds for my students, etc). Other...
  7. Sopranino and Higher
    Hi, I manage the sax department at Howarth of London. We have the first new Yanagisawa Sopranino in solid silver to high F# and I though people would want to know. It really is fantastic and a lot cheaper than the Selmer to high F# in brass. I know there are a lot of sopranino enthusiasts...

  11. Sopranino and Higher
    Hello all, I am considering buying a Yanagisawa Sopranino saxophone (I am a regular soprano player) and would like some feedback on the instrument from those who own/play this horn. In particular intonation and tone. I live in Australia and it is almost impossible to actually try a horn -...
