This guide is under construction. Formatting/editing advice will be most appreciated :)


A lot of people enjoy the act of shopping for an ocarina. They read reviews, compare sound samples, look at photos, and contact current and previous owners, but some people don't like to do that and instead prefer to have their choices narrowed down a bit. This guide is written for those people. While many of the ocarinas listed here will be beginner friendly, all of the recommendations below are great ocarinas that could round out any collection.

Before I get into the specifics of which ocarinas I recommend, I think it is important to tell you a little about me. I am an ocarina performer, teacher, and designer. I have a very large collection of ocarinas and have extensive experience with all of the ocarinas you'll be reading about. It is also important for me to reveal facts that some may see as potential conflicts of interest :



  • I am a contractor for STL Ocarina receive monetary compensation for videos, tutorials, and profits from sales of Aria ocarinas.

  • I have received sponsorship from Noble Ocarina to perform the 2012 International Ocarina Festival

  • I am on friendly terms with many of the makers/sellers I recommend.

  • I have received no compensation for writing this guide and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
