12 Hole Tenor Ocarina "Aria" (2 Colors Available)
Designed by the winner of STL's first Star Search Competition, Cris Gale, the Aria 12-hole tenor ocarina was designed to be beautiful, as well as ergonomic. It's long tapered shapes allows notes to transition from high to low with ease while the longer mouthpiece offers tone stability and a comfortable grasp.
The Aria ocarina measures 7.5 inches long and is made from quality ceramic. It's been accurately tuned in C Major with a pitch range of 13 notes. This exquisite instrument is available in black and green. While it was designed for techniques, a beginner can certainly start with the Aria and master its potential.

It took me some time to get used to Aria. It is more narrow than my previous ocarina and the unusually big right thumbhole gave me some trouble, but now I'm absolutely in love with this instrument!
I used to avoid high pitched songs because the high notes were so hard to get right on my previous ocarina. Now I can play whatever I want :)B
This is one of several 12-hole ocarinas I own, and it's one of my favorites. The black finish is glossy, but textured, so it's easy to hold and to play the sub-holes. Ocarina is well-tuned and sounds really nice. With practice and proper technique, even the highest notes are clear and pleasing. The long tail makes it easy to grip while playing higher notes and needing alternate finger support. I really like this one.M
This is the 2nd ocarina I've bought (the first being a cheap Zelda one off eBay) and it is an amazing instrument, in look and sound. It has a lovely tone, though I am a beginner so it is a bit hard to hit the high notes at the moment. Completely happy with purchase.P
This is my first ocarina and my first instrument - I could not have been happier with my purchase. The sound quality is great, the ocarina was in tune, the design is gorgeous, the holes are easy to find, and everything was as expected. It took me a while to learn how to play the low and high notes well, but that was all part of the learning process. Once I learned, it played really well. I am so happy I received this product and I highly recommend it, I will forever have high expectations for this company.T
I learned to play using Chris Gale's book. I picked up this ocarina as it was not only beautiful but her design. This is an amazing ocarina that I love.
