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'm so stoked with the sound quality of this instrument. I was concerned that it might be too shrill or difficult to achieve good tones. This is a really well made instrument. Lovin' it!A
The ocarina is beautiful to look at! I love the color of it. It also just "feels" like top quality! Sounds beautiful as well and, though it'll take some time before I learn to play it, the fact that it's small enough to carry around is a plus. Love it! Oh, and the box it comes in is gorgeous too!B
If you’re interested in a soprano ocarina, spend the extra money and purchase this one! The tone, playability, and overall quality is outstanding.E
This is the one you want if you want a Soprano C. This plays so easily and there is very little breath requirement change between the high and low notes. It almost seems to play itself, it's effortless and a pleasure and it sounds so good. I honestly don't know why purple clay makes such a big difference but it does. I love mine!S
I'm more of a song lyric player than a folk player but the few folk songs i play are so fun to play on this very small ocarina. Nice to play outside. It's very loud and expressive. I have the Tenor and the Alto and i don't regret getting the soprano.
