What is Purple Clay?
Purple Clay, also known as ( Zisha or Purple Sand ), is a rare natural mineral resource found only in the region of Yixing, China. It is comprised of clay and other minerals such as quartz. Although named "purple clay" it is usually rose-brown in color, although some other colors exist. Because of its unique blend of minerals, purple clay is more durable than other clays once it has been fired. It is also more porous. As a result, ocarinas made of purple clay actually improve with time. As the clay absorbs the moisture created by playing, the clay vibrates differently and becomes more resonant.
As wonderful as I thought it would be. Nicely in tune, well matched trio with practice. There is a learning curve with this instrument, as finger spacing is wide, plus it’s quite heavy to support for long. The hard case is a great addition to the package. No finger chart was available for this instrument, however correct fingering was not too hard to figure out. Great and appreciated addition to my collection.A
Smooth, mellow sound, easy to play. A little on the heavy side. No neck-strap. Also lacks sharp/flat holes on the bass chamber. Easy to learn and adapt to, though, so that is not a hindrance. Would recommend to any passionate ocarina player, and especially would recommend to a professional.D
It sounds magnificent, Came with nice case and sheet music too.
Expensive but worth it for quality and workmanship.
I bought this ocarina a month or so ago. I could not be more delighted. It is a bit of a challenge because of the size and learning how to switch between chambers smoothly, but I am thoroughly enjoying playing this ocarina. The sound quality is amazing and the range of notes is perfect for the music I like to play.
An unexpected bonus with this ocarina was the amazing hard case that came with it. Very happyL
This ocarina first got my attention when I heard the rich sound it has. The ocarina I received has the same beautiful sound. Although the range is less than the range of the other triples, I would definitely buy this ocarina because of its sound.
