  • Great Sopranino....

    By: ,

    I initially viewed this specification when the item was out of stock....a week or so later more stock arrived so I ordered one.
    The Sopranino is an interesting addition to a reed player's 'toolbox'.....considerably smaller and lighter weight than a typical Soprano Sax......for these reasons not requiring a neck strap for support.
    The mouthpiece and reeds are smaller too, but easy to adapt to . The tone is bright and cuts through the mix in any ensemble.....the rose brass looks great and probably warms the tone somewhat.
    With a good quality case included this sax shows excellent value for money.....
    Well recommended.....!!
