Imagine the musical possibilities that open with a matching set of concert ocarinas! They comprise the ideal collection for anyone desiring to form a traditional ocarina ensemble. Perfectly tuned to one another, there is no need to worry about minute differences in tuning that might exist when attempting to bring together a mix of ocarinas from varying origins.
These sets also offer great advantages to soloists. The standard 12-hole ocarina has a somewhat limited range of only an octave and a sixth. And even within this range, it can often be difficult to fluidly move between different key signatures without encountering barriers in comfortability and accessibility.
Thus, one who finds the need to play the ocarina in all different keys and ranges may need a diversified collection of ocarinas to accommodate every possible situation.
This collection includes seven unique professional quality ocarinas in Bass C, Tenor F, Tenor G, Alto C, Soprano F, Soprano G, and Soprano C. Each ocarina is fashioned with a beautiful strawfire finish.
Included is a form-fitting case which can either be carried as a briefcase, worn over the shoulder, or even as a backpack.
* 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.
