Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I've got one, and i know how to play most Zelda songs on it. Even some newer ones, too.

Haha. I'm working on Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring right now.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I have a violin and a Bösendorfer piano. Now try to beat that. They're much better that a tiny little ocarina. Hmpf.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I have replicas of both the Fairy Ocarina and the Ocarina of Time. I recently bought a second OoT when they recently released those newer, more accurate-looking ones.... I also have a plain, wooden ocarina my dad bought for me when I was 4. I never really played the wooden one, though, just because I'm afraid it'll get messed up somehow. Ceramic ones are much easier to clean.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I was thinking about getting one, to help with learning to sight read music. Though I'll probably end up getting a tin whistle instead.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I got one last year for christmas. My mom was asking me if I thought I would want one.I told her no. I guess she thought I was just saying that, because she got me one anyway. It's a nice collecters item though. Even though it's not a replica of anything -_-
It's still neat.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I made a horrible mistake of buying a double ocarina without knowing how to play a pendant ocarina XD whoopsie. I'm usually pretty fast at picking up instruments, but I never really touched that one. I want an STL Zelda rupee to learn the basics of the pendant style (and also cuz it'd be awesome to have), and then I can probably figure out the double a little easier.

I've also been looking at songbird's OoT replica and the Muse. god...the Muse is gorgeous. I know I'd be able to pick up a sweet potato a lot easier than the pendant - it's more linear. I've asked for the Muse for christmas.

and at some point, I need to get a "beater" ocarina that I can take everywhere with me, that I wouldn't be heartbroken if it broke or got stolen or whatever.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I do have one, but it's not an OoT Ocarina, it's one of these kinds. My personal opinion, those kinds aren't that great considering they don't have such a large range in notes (or maybe mine's just crappy). But hey, it's my ocarina, and it catches people's attention when played at the park.

The Muse is a cool ocarina. It has a trippy design. Like Tool's album covers lol.
I'm gonna ask for one for Christmas. On STL, the 12 Hole "Echo" Ocarina. It says it has a super rounded chamber, and unprecedented renosance. That means awesome sound quality, so that's a major plus. And it comes with a Zelda songbook, which I know has many songs, a Folksong book, an instructional book, so I can learn how to read music, and a protective bag. And for a very reasonable price. And it's on sale. Like a lot of the ocarinas on STL are. Then afterwords, work my way up to a double.

Here's the ocarina:

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I don't because I'm not that much of a fanboy and I would get tired of it in five minutes.

I know someone who got an ocarina.

That path was followed.

Re: Do You Own An Ocarina?

I added the Echo Ocarina to my Christmas List. Hopefully I get it. That would be awesome. Playing Zelda tunes lol!
Do any of you know how to clean an ocarina? The inside and out?
Thanks.

Then don't post if that's your opinion.
Does anyone know how to clean an ocarina? Thanks.

@aspenfox: Yeah, I can understand why you'd say that, cause Peruvian Ocarinas are usually for show.

I think it's best not to immerse the ocarina in water. To be on the safe side, use a damp cloth to clean the outside.

To clean the airway, put a thin strip of paper in the mouthpiece - gently rub the sides of the airway. You might get a bit of powder coming out, but that's normal.
