I know the mouthpiece pitch for alto is concert A, tenor is concert G, and sooprano is concert C. I borowed a friends sopranino and had a lot of trouble with intonation. Does anybody know the correct pitch for a sopranino mouthpiece?

Hi Steve!
Great to have you back. Caught your post concerning the Vespros over on Fantasy Island. Don't you remember when you first used the midget in an elevator line?

I do...

I would imagine that you just need a much firmer embouchure. I played my professor's on monday, and got it to play in tune after I realized that the reed was not the right size for me (brought out a 4, using the original C* on a Mk VI 'nino), and then played on a four.

Make sure the reed isn't too soft, and that you are playing with a firm embouchure!

Sadly, can't tell you about the mouthpiece pitch.
