Element Ocarina: Water in C Major (Tenor)
“Water is life's matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.”
The 12 Hole Water Ocarina is one in a series of ocarinas inspired by the elements that are essential to our wellbeing and existence. Handcrafted in high-grade ceramic with attention to detail, the flowing lines capture the beauty of gentle currents and the soft curves of a seashell. With sound as exquisite as its design, this tenor ocarina is as soothing as the sound of a rainstorm or the flow of a trickling stream.
The Water ocarina has been accurately tuned in the key of C major with a pitch range from A4 to F6, including flats and sharps. From its ethereal design to impressive range and sound, this ocarina is true joy to play. An online instructional booklet is included with all of our ocarinas.

The Water in C Major (Tenor) ocarina is my first ocarina. I wanted something that was not only beautiful, but it has a beautiful sound. And this ocarina did not disappoint! It's ceramic, so it is a little on the heavy side, but that was exactly what I wanted. The balance and the hold in your hand is perfect, and the finish is smooth. And it arrived relatively fast, too!
I also got a free ocarina CD and they emailed me a whole bunch of free stuff like lessons and tabs.
My only complaint is the pitch on the highest note. It doesn't sound great to me, and it sounds a little sharp. This may have been a manufacturing issue, or (heck) maybe it is an issue with my playing. So I'm a little suspicious about that.
But other than that, I have put a STL ocarina in my cart a few times and backed out, but the thing that made me buy it was: 1. Having more money to invest in an ocarina, and 2. The constant ads.
So overall I give 5 out of 5 cause I love it.B
I'm using this ocarina to teach myself to read and play music during the lockdowns. The lessons STL sent me with my order, as well as a couple youtubers have really put my on my way to accomplishing this. The ocarina is beautiful and plays amazing, as far as I can tell of course. The design is not only stylish but practical. I was worried about dropping it, but the strap it comes with and grooves on it really help me feel like I dont have to worry about that and can just focus on sounding less bad. Would and will buy another, should anything happen to this one.N
The sound, feel, and look is lovely!! A gorgeous instrument, its everything I wanted. The shipping was fast and amazing as well. It's easy to hold and the grooves and style look even better in person.C
It has a beautiful color and sound. I can’t wait to show it off.A
This is a beautiful ocarina! The sound is what really drove me to choose this specific one! No doubt this is one of my favorite ones in my small collection so far. The downside is that it is definitely weighty; I was very surprised at that. Also, since I'm still working on the last two sub-holes in my daily exercises, I find that playing low A to be a bit difficult. The hole is placed on a groove which makes it hard to cover properly. But I'm sure I'll get it down eventually. I'm still new to the ocarina world and have a lot to learn. All-in-all, I'm very happy with this ocarina!
