Product information

Pitch Range

Plays B3 to F5, fully chromatic
  • a basic C Major diatonic scale of 12 notes (1.5 octave)
  • total of 19 notes, counting all sharps and flats
Please note 2 recent modifications of this xun product:
     1. We have changed the name of this product from Xun AC to Xun BC. This will better reflect its range which begins with B3, making the range of the instrument nearly identical to that of our 12-hole BC ocarina. "BC" is now stamped on the underside of the instrument.
     2. We have added a subhole covered by the right middle finger (not yet showing in photograghs). The subhole not only expands the range downward by one diatonic in the C major scale, but also provides fingerings for all accidentals within the range of the instrument. Without the subhole, the C#4 was playable only by half covering a tonehole.
