This is my 10th ocarina I've bought from STL and they never disappoint!! This one has such a beautiful design and sounds incredible as always! Always a pleasure buying from them!B
This ocarina sounds amazing and is even more beautiful in person than in pictures! It is also really well tuned, relative to itself, but be aware that every note is *slightly* sharp, so it is not perfectly concert-tuned. Also be aware that the sound holes are fairly close together and may be difficult to cover with large hands. One more note on this ocarina- it has a fairly intense breath-curve, meaning that you must blow quite hard in order to hit high notes which isn't a problem itself, but it does mean that this ocarina is loud! That's my favorite part to be honest :) I really love this ocarina and am excited to play it for years to come. Thanks, STL!C
When my 9 year old daughter decided to venture out from the 4 and 6 hole ocarinas to this 12 hole, she wisely picked this one for her small hands. She was awed by her new instrument and between the post office and home, she was already picking out tunes. She plays it all the time and she let's no one handle it besides herself. It's petite, more beautiful than the pictures show, so easy to play and the high pitch isn't too hard on the ears. And all this from a little girl who thought she had NO MUSICAL TALENT...and then she discovered the ocarina!C
Overall, I am very pleased with the air element ocarina. Love the design, and the little hooks at the tips help as a hand-hold for playing the higher notes. The sound quality is very good, but there is one flaw that mine has, and that is that the C# is very hard to play. The breath pressure required for that specific note is rather low, forcing me to play it quite a bit quieter than all the notes around it, and it always comes out a little screechy. I don't know if that's a problem with sopranos in general, as this is my first soprano, but that is my experience. Otherwise, a fantastic instrument
