I prefer the 12, but there’s nothing wrong with the 6. Sounds exactly as I hoped it would. Highly recommend!I
I bought the plastic tenor 6-hole ocarina. It's great fun, I like it, and I recommend it highly.
I love the compact shape and its solid feel. I got the tenor instrument, not soprano, so that my experimental high notes aren't freely and loudly shared throughout the neighborhood. Plastic, but sturdy, so I'm confident about carrying it around, stuffing it in a pack without worrying I'll somehow damage it, sit on it or drop it. That said, this isn't a throw away, plastic toy in the shape of an ocarina, it is a real musical instrument.
Notes: You've got an octave beginning at middle C plus the notes D and E above the octave. The instrument is chromatic, which I like, and which will extend my range of playable whistle tunes.
I'm using my ocarina to (learn how to) play simple Morris dance tunes, the sheet music for which is widely available on the internet.
As a beginner, I frequently check my note playing with a tuner and adjust my breaths accordingly to produce the best and most accurate notes I can manage. I'm confident this one trick alone will save my marriage (really, get a tuner). Playing the notes is very easy, playing all the notes correctly (no sharps or flats) takes a bit more time and practice, but it will come.
My first challenge with this little blue beastie has been not so much learning note fingerings, but learning how to retain physical control of it while doing those fingerings. You may infer I have adult size hands. Occasionally, the ocarina pops out between my fingers and hilarity ensues. Most of this is due to my current inexperience/ineptness playing the higher notes, and by practice I'm adapting pretty well.
For a very modest investment, this 6-hole ocarina will repay you with hours and hours of enjoyment. If you're looking for a place to dive in, try this model.
This Ocarina is larger than I expected (it’s about the size of my fist), has a really smooth texture, and easy to hold. The overall quality is superb! Would absolutely recommend to any and all looking to get into playing the OcarinaA
My 2.5-year-old son has recently been very into the movie My Neighbor Totoro. Each time we watched it, he would say, "Mommy and Daddy gonna get me an ocarina. And I gonna make Totoro sounds!" So, we found STL Ocarina online, ordered the 6 Hold plastic ocarina for beginners, and he is just delighted. He is too shy to play it in front of us yet, but every night in his crib he asks for it and we get to listen to him make Totoro sounds on his monitor. It is absolutely magical.W
Great instrument. Very good for beginners.
