Well between my wife and I, we love playing duets, we own four sops, two ninos and one soprillo.sycc said:Gandalfe, Do you own 2 ninos and a soprillo or a nino and a soprillo????2 ninos would be fun!!!!Duet time!!!!!!
The survey is skewed by the fact only those who are interested in a 'nino would even respond to this thread.ChuBerry47 said:You guys can't tell me that 35% of people here own sopraninos. It has got to be less than that. Excluding all the people who sold them, that is a lot of people who own Sopraninoes!
I'm starting to drool.Grumps said:Quite frankly, I should sell mine to someone who'll play it, but it is quite a collector's item and I probaby wouldn't part with it unless someone made something like a 10K offer based on its uniqueness. But then I'd be splitting up the pair (the matching VI soprano also in original, custom Selmer black lacquer).
True - I always look here, thinking "do I really want to try one of the cheap ones ?"tjontheroad said:The survey is skewed by the fact only those who are interested in a 'nino would even respond to this thread.
You could try a more open tipped mouthpiece; but I suppose you'd have to alter an old one which may not be worth the risk.cmelodysax said:But I've come to the conclusion that the top notes on a C-Sop are not exactly easy to sound full and confident on, so do I really want anything thinner/higher ?
This may skewer the survey, but I own 17 sopraninos (and one soprillo) , and I rotate the best ones in my professional work. Next performance is in November, this time on one of my Buescher instruments.Gandalfe said:The more people who take the survey the more accurate the numbers become. At around 20 people the percentages are already starting to normalize.
