OCARINAS

181k AIFF sound file
363k AU sound file

Many different kinds of ocarinas have been invented since primitive globular flutes were found in Pre-Colombian South America.

A 10-hole terra cotta flute named ocarina (translated "little goose") first appeared in Italy around 1860. This instrument became known in the United States as the "sweet potato." A recently-invented, four-hole ocarina pendant makes it possible to play a scale of one octave.

Our four-hole ocarina pendant, a highly refined version of the ancient whistle, is capable of playing 13 notes - one chromatic octave. Its accurate tuning and sweet tone make it a genuine musical instrument. The pendant comes with a jewelry-type neck cord, gift box and song sheet with instructions. Unique tablature will allow even non-musicians to play familiar tunes without having to read music. It is a collector's item; only a limited quantity is available.

Pictured Left: Expertly hand-crafted in ceramic, our 12-hole ocarina has an accurately tuned scale of 1 & 1/2 octaves at A-440 concert pitch.

Its clear, rich tone lends itself to solo and ensemble playing. a musician's ocarina! Four different pitches. Comes with fitted box, fingering chart, and song sheet.
