Could be many things, but the high end on soprano, requires the same "voicing" as the altissimo range on Alto and Tenor. I can go to alltissimo G on my soprano no problem.why can't I play over a C# comfortably???
i feel great on soprano....get around the horn fine....LOVE my wanne gaia....really have to bend up to a D...possibly can keep pushing it to an Eb...then nada...zippo...nothing
i m happy with my high range on tenor...so im really wondering why this is so hard for me???
OK; just acquired a MINT condition, "used" Antigua Winds Soprano. LOVE it, and the Yanigasaw type bore gives this horn an amazing sound! One strange thing tho; it mcame with a stock, what I call "short stubby" plastic mouthpiece and brass ligature. Now the lig may work with a slim metal mouthpiece but not with my preferred Graftonite mouthpiece (same as I use on my Tenor and Alto), so guess I'm gonna have to just buy a stock Rico ligature, lol. But truly, this horn is amazing and unlike what I've heard, is SO delightful and comfortable to play. Oh and please, those purists out there, no knocks on the Rico graftonite as my mouthpiece of choice please. It's good enough for a LOT of professional sax players, and proof you don't have to pay $000's to get a quality tone.Midlandcomputersweep, let us know how your soprano experience goes. Most folks say the sop is by far the hardest to play, especially in tune. I had a different experience. My soprano came natural to me, blowing free and easy. I play a Yamaha 6C mouthpiece with Rico Royal #2 reeds. I have the toughest time playing the low end on the tenor. Individual differences...
