You can use some blue painters tape to cover about 1/2 of the fipple and it will make your ocarina much quieter, but a slight bit flat.

Dear Mr Cataldi,
Have you got a sound sample of a super quiet ocarina or do you know someone who owns one so that I could compare the sound? I do not mean to cause you too much expense and I hope I am not too demanding related to the work you've got to do.

To all, do you think the Hind bass (or the tytoalba ocarina) would be appropriate for a beginner like me? It's not that I do no trsut what you said CKeene, I'd like to learn about as much opinions and experiences as possible. :)
Have you tried the painters tape trick?

You put a piece of blue painters tape over about 1/2 of the fipple it will greatly reduce the sound levels while making the instrument only slightly flat.

Another trick is to put a straw in the windway although I can't promise that won't damage the windway on a ceramic ocarina, the only place I have heard that recommended was in the Mountains Ocarina website.
