Here's one of my favorite pics from Acen 2012. I'm very excited to have photos with my new Fairy Ocarina (I can't even look at the old one anymore. XD; ) I loved that vine swing! I wasn't sure whether or not it would hold my weight, but ~WhiteDesertSun
, being very brave, tested it out for me. XD The crazy thing is that it's actually a tree root! I have no idea how it got strung up like that! XD
I did make the ocarina myself, and I actually make them to sell! Here are the details:
-They have seven holes
-They have a one octave range, starting at G one octave above middle C
-They are tuned in the key of G Major
-They are "in tune with themselves" meaning they aren't "concert tuned." Any instrument played in accompaniment with these ocarinas will need to be tuned to the ocarina. At least, until I can achieve concert intonation. ^ ^;
-They are made from Sculpey III polymer clay.
-A sound sample can be found here: [link]
Right now, I am making them as I receive orders. So if you're interested, send me a note.
Be aware that it will be about 1 - 3 business days before it is shipped, so I have time to make them.
