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.
I was a little Leary about getting a F major because I had several C. But when I started playing it I was so happy. It sounds so good. If you are a serious Ocarina player you need this!!!F
This is a quality instrument but STL consistently has misleading or flat out incorrect listings. This Ocarina is NOT Alto F, it is Soprano F. Its even stamped "SF" on the neck. Just like how their Tenor C is Alto C and Tenor G can be Alto or Soprano.
I am dissapointed by such a clear inaccuracy in the name of the product but luckily my collection is without a SF and the quality is notable. Would recommend the instrument but be careful. You may not get what you payed for.E
This is my first ocarina and I absolutely love it. In the past I’ve played piano, violin, and ukulele, and although I’ve never played a wind instrument before, this is the fastest I’ve ever caught onto a new instrument. It’s only been a few days since I started playing it, but it’s very easy to get the hang of. This ocarina has a very nice tone and is so nicely made. I can’t wait to get better at playing this beautiful instrument!
Thank you for making the childhood dream of yet another life-long Zelda fan come true!L
I am a HUGE lover of ocarina music and I got this one to compliment my C ocarina. I have no regrets! It plays so beautifully and the subholes are SO much easier to work with than on my C one. My only note is, it doesn't come with a cord to hang around your neck, so make sure you have one ready when you purchase, but I 10/10 recommend.M
being a non professional i think this might be the finest ocarina i've played. the tone is gorgeous with just a hint of texture. its expressive and responsive. playing easily the highest and lowest notes. the voice hole looks like it was crafted by a master craftsman and it sounds like it! with medium sized hands i find my hands lay and line up perfectly. and being in the key of F im finding quite a few songs that ive avoided in the past with my C ocarina. im absolutely ecstatic and couldn't be happier with this ocarina. i have had multiple orders now through STLOcarina and can say with confidence they sell consistent quality. and that quality is very good! Thanks again STL.
