Bringing you to the deepest depths of the ocarina spectrum, we are excited to offer the new Contrabass Ocarina. Offering a range a full two octaves below that of a standard Alto C, the Contrabass will bring your music into an entirely new realm of the widest wavelengths. Its voluminous chamber boasts a rich, resonant voice like a slow rumbling thunder. At the same time, it is surprisingly light despite its larger size. Whether you want to harmonize with the song of the vast ocean's rolling waves, or simply use your ocarina to take the bass line, this instrument opens a whole new world of possibilities.
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 organic designs and rich woodsy color on the surface of the ocarina. 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.
