Pitch Range

A unique offering by ICO. This instrument differs from our standard double SG ONLY in that it has been treated with gray metallic acrylic paint, with an overcoat of clear varnish and our usual band of acrylic varnish on the mouthpiece. Sound quality of the instrument is unaffected by these surface treatments. There is only one in stock and that the photos show the specific instrument to be received upon order.

 

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 (F#7/G7 and G7) 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.
