Double Sweet Potato Style Ocarina in Alto C, Dolce Style, with 2 chambers that can be played independently or together. Beautiful organic wood-like finish with a very balanced and stable tone in a wide range.
Dolce style ocarina is quieter and softer blowing required than the Forte, which is more of a concert and performance style instrument.
This ocarina was produced by Zack Shih of Focalink, based in Taiwan. His instruments are of exceptional quality and sound.
The key of C is known to convey the characteristics of purity and innocence.
* What is Straw Fire?
Straw fire is when an already kiln-fired ocarina is put inside a fire-proof container and fired again with combustible straw. The smoke from the fire makes completely random organic designs on the surface of the ocarina, in rich woodsy colors and the result is a "one of a kind" design pattern. The ocarina is then polished with an organic lacquer which comes from certain trees. Camphor oil is used to thin the lacquer. There are a very small number of individuals who have reported allergic reactions to the Straw Fired ocarinas. If you think you may be allergic to lacquer, or camphor oil, please choose a different ocarina.
