Product information

This is the Mini double Alto in the key of C, with a brass leaf finish. A clear varnish has been applied for durability.

 

Please note that while the surface is fairly durable, just like paint it is not as durable as a fired glaze, requires more careful handling, and may wear out over time. Never use alcohol to clean the surface (gently wipe with a damp cloth with water only), and never leave in extreme heat or direct sunlight for extended periods.

 

While every effort has been made to show the colors as accurately as possible, monitors and settings may show differently from in person.

 

Note that this has already been finished and is one-of-a-kind. If you like the look and this is sold out, or you'd like a different type of ocarina in this finish, feel free to contact me!

 

Pitch Range

Plays A4 to C7, fully chromatic.

  • C Major basic scale of 17 notes (2 1/4 octaves)
  • 28 total notes when counting all sharps and flats
  • plays the exact same note range as our standard double AC ocarina

 

The Double AC Mini differs from our standard double AC ocarina in the following ways:

   - Compact size... the Mini is significantly smaller than our standard Double AC      and features a unique shape. A very portable instrument!

   - The highest tonehole of the second chamber is moved to the underside of          the ocarina to be covered by the right thumb. 

   - Breath pressure is medium but tends to be very slightly lower than the              standard double AC.
