Purple Clay Tenor C Major Double Ocarina
Our new Purple Clay Double Ocarina is something to see! This ocarina will just keep getting better with age as purple clay is more durable when fired and more porous than other clay. It absorbs the moisture created by playing, changing the vibrations and becoming more resonant over time.
The Purple Clay Double Ocarina measures 6.5 inches long and is tuned in C Major with a pitch range of two octaves, from A4 to C7. Capable of sharps and flats, this ocarina is a joy to play and hear. It comes with a free collectors box and complete fingering chart. We have also included Zelda Songbook and Folksong for Ocarinas Volume One ($26 value).

The instrument is beautiful, sounds amazing, and appears to darken with exposure to moisture and skin oils. I look forward to breaking it in to see if the resonance truly does improve with time.P
For some reason I decided to purchase this ocarina as my first ocarina. Was it a good idea? Debatable, but I do believe that its quality is commendable despite not having any actual reference to base it on. Only complaint is that it came with a Zelda book for 12 hole instead of one for a double ocarina, but other than that, the purchase was a good decision.B
This ocarina is one of my favorites in my collection. It both looks and sounds stunning. It took a couple days longer to arrive than my packages from STL have, but when I opened it, I discovered it was well worth the wait. Some of my favorite qualities about this particular ocarina are:
~good chamber balance - it is hardly noticeable when you switch from the 1st chamber to the 2nd; this also allows it to play cords
~excellent subholes - this ocarina has the best subholes out of all the ocarinas I own, hands down; they are louder and more easily played in tune than ocarinas of similar quality from competing brands
~stunning appearance - unlike the product picture, my double is a brown-red color with light orange-golden striping
