Focalink of Taiwan is a world-renowned producer of performance-grade ocarinas of consistently high quality. This lovely compact pendant model is classed as an alto, in the key of C5-E6 with a range of an octave and a third. As an alto in C it possesses a nice mellow, bold sound that's easy on the ears even when playing indoors.
This model is a perfect go-anywhere ocarina that may be worn unobtrusively. The included adjustable necklace cord gets the job done nicely, but many enjoy retying their pendants with a personalized cord.
This ocarina is made of traditional robust ceramic and takes its distinctive patterning and coloration from a process known as strawfiring, where the ocarina is wrapped in combustable materials before being placed in the kiln. Each piece is completely unique and gives the instrument its own "fingerprint."
A fingering chart/instructional booklet is included.
Note: Camphor oil is used as a thinner in the shellac applied to these ocarinas. If you are allergic to camphor you may wish to choose a different ocarina.
