Alto Double Chamber Mini, Key of C - Urushi Mimic


Manufacturer: Imperial City Ocarina

Product information

This is the Mini double Alto in the key of C, finished in my mimic of the art of painting with pigmented urushi. Rather than being a lacquer, this is painted with layers of different-colored glazes then sanded back, giving random bursts of color. This is a very smooth, shiny, durable surface!


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.
