New Pendant Double Ocarina with Maximized Range
Brand new from our Ocarevolution line, this double ocarina offers some incredible features.
Tuned in C Major, this ocarina uses standard English 6 hole fingering system. The bigger chamber (tenor) plays from B4 to E6 and the smaller chamber (soprano) plays from C6 to E7. Both chambers are now fully chromatic. You can also play two notes at the same time on this ocarina.
We have included a complete fingering chart, as well as a Zelda Songbook, and Folksong for Ocarina Volume One with this ocarina. If you would like to have other songbooks instead, simple leave a note at the “comment” section when you check out. We'll be happy to switch them for you.
I'm probably wayyyy too much of an amateur to leave a very useful review, but I think it's great. Sounds lovely, very easy to play, etc. Some people say the two highest notes on the low chamber are too hard to play. I haven't found this to be the case. At first, there's a tendency to produce a super high shrill noise, but it's not hard to fix. Mostly it just involves higher breath pressure. The fingering is a bit cramped of course but it feels pretty comfortable to me. Once you get the idea, the fingering is also pretty intuitive. The range on this thing is ridiculous! Nobody expects this sort of range out of a pendant I think.
Now, for the small complaints I do have. The higher chamber has a tendency to sound a bit airy, and it can be really tricky to completely cover the holes. Of course if you don't, all the notes are off. Also, I'm not sure if the two chambers as in tune with each other as they might be on a professional level instrument. The teeny tiny extra hole on the lower chamber (for hitting all the chromatics) is a bit awkward. Also to my very untrained ear that hole sometimes doesn't seem to make much difference?
The only other thing I would say is, it is possible but difficult to use this for harmony playing. The windways are further apart than you'd think so you realllllyyyy have to open your mouth wide to hit them both. Also, because of the way the holes are placed, it's awkward to get certain combinations of notes. It's nearly impossible to cover some of the higher chamber holes without partially obstructing the neighboring lower chamber holes; not a problem for one chamber playing of course. I don't think it was really designed for harmony playing exactly but it doesn't do a terrible job at it.
Hopefully it doesn't seem like I'm picking this thing apart, because I actually really really like it!! I think all the problems I've mentioned are probably necessary tradeoffs to make something this cool in the first place.A
There is quite a learning curve for playing in harmony (some holes are a little close together between the octaves for my fingers), but the notes are clear throughout both scales. (Needs a little more air for the higher notes) All in all, it plays pretty well. I've taken this ocarina with me a lot to practice wherever I can. If you want a good double ocarina where you don't have to spend a lot to get it, this may be the one you're looking for.L
I’m very happy with my ocarina, it has a beautiful sound and the maximed range it’s great for professional playing.R
For me, the sound holes are really close together which makes it difficult to play both chambers simultaneously. I am trying to adjust how I hold it to see if that helps. Other then that, I am pleased with it.L
I have wanted a double Ocarina for a long time but they have always been a little our of my price range. I find this one and it is not only a double, it has a dual chamber/ which makes it fantastic for harmony. (As pretty as the Ivy harmony is, it isn't particularly easy to play)
The fingering is pretty much like any pendant ocarina and, although a little confusing at first, fairly easy to get the hang of and not hard to hold. I love the tone. Very bright and clear. As promised, they changed out the music books for me and I'm excited to learn some new songs.
