12 Hole Alto Ocarina "Aria" in G Major
Designed by Cris Gale, the Aria 12-hole alto ocarina in G Major was designed to be beautiful, as well as ergonomic. Its long tapered shapes allows notes to transition from high to low with ease while the longer mouthpiece offers tone stability and a comfortable grasp.
This ocarina measures 5 inches long and is made from quality ceramic. It’s been accurately tuned in G Major with a pitch range of 13 notes. This exquisite instrument is available in black and red. While it was designed techniques, a beginner can certainly start with the Aria and master its potential.

If sound is your biggest concern when buying an ocarina, look no further. Not only is this ocarina easy to hold and play, it has one of the clearest tones I've ever heard from an ocarina, even on the high notes. The tenor Aria is a little airy on the high notes, but this one is gorgeous. Well worth the price! Also, the carrying bags seem to be out of stock/production, but if they ever return, this ocarina fits perfectly in the smaller bag. The tenor is too big for the larger bag, though.M
I actually got this one at the Anime Expo of 2014. I am very pleased with the quality of this piece. All the notes are clear and sharp. It is painted and glazed beautifully and is probably my favorite ocarina thus far. the Ergonomics on this are excellent, and the tapered nose is perfect for getting used to curling your pinkie around it to get to the higher notes. It is not very cumbersome like a tenor might be. If you are looking for your first 12-hole I would highly recommend this one. The breath requirement is not very taxing, given that it is an alto with a smaller chamber. It has a tone that is more Zelda-like, maybe slightly higher pitched. I highly recommend this ocarina to anyone
