Hi Folks

My 16 year old son has been playing tenor (Walstein) for around 18mths now as well as clarinet (Hanson) for the past 8 years or so and is keen to try the sopranino.

Can anyone recommend a moderatly priced sopranino (if there is such a thing) as most I've seen appear to be very much at the upper end of the market.

Any opinions or advice gratefully received.

Colin:thankyou:

There is only one moderately priced modern sopranino on t' market- the Earlham (they're pretty good bits of kit....)

Can't you talk him out of it and get a soprano instead? Just my opinion, but I think sopraninos are awful things, making a sound like someone strangling a ferret.

Check out the Bauhaus-Walstein Sopranino around £530 from Martin at Woodwind and Brass:)

I've tried that Jon but he fancies something a bit different!!!

Will certainly be worth a look as the tenor is great value for money.

One's tempted to ask how you know.... >:) But I guess you'll have the RSPCA knocking on your door if you answer....

A friend of mine has one and plays it in our saxophone choir. He is managing to sweeten the tone. Having said that, ear plugs for yourself might be a good idea.
