Element Ocarina: Shadow in C Major (Bass)
“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be a shadow.” Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
The Shadow; that which is subtle, almost ethereal, which shyly suggests the substantive nature of the elements, or provides an intermediary between the here and now and the world of dreams. The Shadow Ocarina, meticulously handcrafted as part of a set, allows you to explore this bridge between worlds through self- expression. It invites you to tap into the dream world through the intermediary of music producing deep, resonant notes. It allows you to lose yourself in a dimension of creativity and self-expression while living in the moment.
The Shadow ocarina has been accurately tuned in the key of Bass C Major with a pitch range from A3 to F5. From its ethereal, evocative design to its impressive range and sound, this ocarina is true joy to play. An online instructional booklet is included with all of our ocarinas.

This instrument has a gorgeous, understated tone that can bring a somber feeling to any ocarina piece it plays. It’s very heavy, I recommend beginners rest the instrument on a stand or table when playing, but it’s worth the beautiful tone this instrument produces.J
not for beginners, that's for sure. it is heavy but that's too be expected and it takes alot of breath control. the notes this makes are such a nice sound. so happy to add this to my collection.B
It‘s a lot of fun to elicit its sounds from this ocarina. Wonderfully deep and, as always, a wonderful sound.A
Very well made, bigger than most ocarinas but thats because it is a bass ocarina. Has a great tone to it as well, great job STL!J
I’m not a professional nor do I have the greatest ear however I can say this instrument is high quality. To me it sounds soft (compared to the few Ocarinas I’ve tried) with a lovely quiet tone. However I find you need to blow VERY soft for the low A to come out. Overall a lovely instrument!
