12 Hole Tenor Ocarina "Destiny"
Remember playing the recorder in school? Well, this is way better!
Destiny, a 12-hole tenor ocarina designed by Ocarevolutionary, can be held and played much the same way you would a recorder. Along with great design made from high-grade ceramic, this ocarina offers up a warm tone and the type of pleasing sound you’d never get from a recorder! This tenor ocarina is accurately tuned in C Major with a pitch range of 13 notes from A4 to F6. It measures 5 inches long and is easy to play. Like all of our ocarinas, Destiny Ocarina one also includes an online instructional booklet so that you can start making beautiful music right away.

This ocarina sounds really great in the lower register, but gets airy and hard to hit notes in the higher register without proper breath control or using the acute bend technique. After some time you get used to the proper way to hit the high notes. As long as you use proper technique, the notes will come out clear. For someone like myself with larger hands, this ocarina was a bit awkward to hold and get used to at first, and hurts my wrists a bit when playing in the higher register, due to the fact that I'm not used to holding this ocarina yet. But it's a minor inconvenience to me. I love the way this ocarina is shaped, and I love its soft, pure tone. It reminds me a bit of the sound of the ceramic "tenor" C Zelda ocarina. Another thing to note, the color of my ocarina was a lot more dull and washed out compared to the color of the ocarina in the photo. It might be one of those "every ocarina is unique" situations, so I won't really leave that as a huge negative, but I wish the almost sharpie blue color in the photo was more accurate to the ocarina I received, which was more of a navy grayish blue, with faint white in the middle. Otherwise, a nice ocarina to add to anyone's collection, especially for just the shape alone.K
I love the sound and shape of the Ocarina. The instrument has a clear key of of c (maybe an octave or two off) but the tone comes out pitch perfect except when you try to do the note b-flat which I have a frustrating time trying to get both holes covered with the same finger. My hands were hurting after a few attempts and had to put it down. Besides that I love everything else about it. Four and a half stars from me.J
It was a little hard to play @ first but I am starting to get the hang of it.L
supper glad I bought it came safely package and it made a sweet birthday present.M
learning to play on the destiny started to bring back memories of the recorder and clarinet. I feel it does not take mass amounts of air to play but you have to dial in your air pressure and technique once you start hitting high B,C,D,E, and F on left hand. The weight of the ocarina is not that bad either and it came with a neck string to help if you need it.
