  • We are proud to show off the first 12-hole bass ocarina designed by us!

    The Passacaglia ocarina offers deep sound that's perfect for an ensemble or for those that prefer an ocarina with lower pitches. This 12-hole ocarina is made from high-grade ceramic and features a longer mouth piece that makes playing this ocarina a dream.

    The 12-hole Passacaglia ocarina measures 10 inches long and has been perfectly tuned in C Major with a pitch range of 13 notes and the capability of performing sharps and flats. Like all of our ocarinas, it's been tuned by professional musicians. We've included an online instructional booklet, as well as a songbook, Songs by John Dowland.

    Only the Finest

    This beautiful ocarina has wowed everybody I have showed it to. It's low and soft tones take a little technique to hit just right. And it's size would make it a little tricky to handle for smaller-handed people, but this one of a kind instrument is a remarkable piece of craftsmanship. I highly recommend it.

    Very resonant & responsive

    This ocarina blew my expectations out of the water. I was afraid the tone might be to airy or that the sound might be too quiet. The notes resonate through the air around me as I play, especially in the middle of the instrument's range. High notes are very well-tuned, but require skill in breath control. The volume is softer than higher-voiced ocarinas, simply by nature, but this is not an overly quiet instrument. Suitable for indoor and outdoor playing. Very relaxing sound. I knew I would enjoy the bass register, and this ocarina more than fulfilled that for me.

    My precious...

    I'm a beginner, but the ocarina (non STL Zelda replica) I had was of poor quality and was too hard to reach high notes. So I bought this one (the notes on the poor quality alto drove my dogs crazy). I love this thing, My fingers are almost too small and the weight took some getting used to, but I manage and I have a much easier time playing now. Also the softer volume means I can practice in confidence without worrying about the other people in the house being bothered. It might not be advised to buy something this expensive if your just starting out and aren't certain about if you are going to play the ocarina, but if you're serious about it, this sounds so pretty and I haven't regretted buying it.
