Take this mini ocarina with you wherever you go!
This instrument is a brand new, 12-hole purple clay soprano ocarina. It is only about 3 inches long, accurately tuned in the key of C Major, with a pitch range of more than an octave and half (13 notes). It also has the capability of performing sharps and flats. We have included a fingering chart and an instructional booklet with this ocarina.
What is Purple Clay?
Purple Clay, also known as ( Zisha or Purple Sand ), is a rare natural mineral resource found only in the region of Yixing, China. It is comprised of clay and other minerals such as quartz. Although named "purple clay" it is usually rose-brown in color, although some other colors exist. Because of its unique blend of minerals, purple clay is more durable than other clays once it has been fired. It is also more porous. As a result, ocarinas made of purple clay actually improve with time. As the clay absorbs the moisture created by playing, the clay vibrates differently and becomes more resonant.

This tiny ocarina packs a huge sound, is very in tune and has a wonderful tone. Of course it's very tiny so the low B, Bb, and A are harder to manage but it does the job great!S
This is the best ocarina I've purchased from STL. I play it daily
Even though I'm tall, I did not find it difficult to adjust to. It's true that purple clay ocarinas only sound better the more they are playedT
This has quickly become my favorite Ocarina! I wear it all the time, just like a pendant ocarina, but without the reduced range and more difficult sharps that come with pendants. It has really good sound quality and a very clear tone with no airyness at all even on the highest notes in my experience. It Is a perfect little every day instrument if your hands are small enough to use it.B
This little ocarina was a lot louder than what I was expecting. May be the loudest ocarina I own now, haha, for how small it is its a bit comical. It looks and feels like a full size ocarina that has been shrunken down to hobbit size haha. Absolutely love the sound quality, and the size is perfect for putting in a shirt pocket. I am so glad STL sells TNG here in the states, otherwise these ocarinas are a bit hard and expensive to get from over seas. I think the price is more than reasonable for a very well made hand crafted ocarina.R
For such a small ocarina, this instrument has a beautiful, clear tone!
