Pitch Range

Plays D5 to F7, fully chromatic.

  • F Major basic scale of 17 notes (2 1/4 octaves)
  • 28 total notes when counting all sharps and flats

 

With a typical human voice range being about 2 octaves and with most songs using about 1.5 octaves, the 2+ octave double covers quite a broad range of music.

 

Special Features

A super portable instrument! Hang around your neck or slide into a pocket and go!

But, due to the compact size of this instrument, tonehole spacing runs between 13 and 16 mm (0.51 to 0.63 inches). Thus, it is not recommended for extra large hand sizes. As a benchmark, if a player's middle finger measures 19 mm or less at the nail, the ocarina should be comfortably playable.

 

The tonehole uncovered to finger the two highest notes of the second chamber (E and F7) is located on the bottom face and is covered by the right thumb.... a slight change in fingering from our standard doubles, but easy to adapt to. This fingering change allows the player to readily do trills on the top couple of notes.
