Hamlett makes a Bb. Probably also Dinda, ICO, tytoalba, others.

If only there was someone else who had done a sound sample of the DIY Ocarina on a proper mic. You can't see me but I've my best smug face on.

Also I mirror Bat's sentiments. It is definitely one of the best ocarinas at its price point and I too prefer it over Focalinks A and B models. I had the AC-A as well and found it too small for my hands and uncomfortable.

Thank you for the sound sample. It sounds better than I expected from it. And I can paint it which is a plus. And I had just promised myself that I would slow down with ocarina buying.

Here's two more DIY sound samples. They're pretty old but were also recorded with a good mic.

Hope you like Final Fantasy 8 music :

I love my Dinda alto Bb! Dinda's are kinda hard to get (especially any variation besides a single chamber alto C), but if you want one send a message to the store and ask if they have any coming up for sale. That's what I did.

I figured I would probably have to request one. I'm still debating if I want to get a double or not as well.

A Bb would let you play clarinet and tenor sax music but a double might be better overall for the extended range

I meant get it as a double Bb. That way I can play my clarinet music as is. A lot of it goes out of range for a 12 hole but most is in range for a double. But I also am trying to convince myself to try to keep at my clarinet so I haven't completely decided yet. But it would be nice to easily play the songs without the wrist pain.

Back on the topic, I discovered by chance someone who would be very enthusiastic about the glow in the dark Ocarina: I quote "I'd like to see recorder that glow in the dark... we have glow in the dark toilets seats, we have glow in the dark condoms" ^^

see here The pied piper: on Yamaha Descant Recorders at 2'43".

(This post was originally placed in the topic about the SoL ocarina... So here it is, now at the correct place.)

As weird as it is I want a glow in the dark toilet seat D:
But seriously though I'm surprised there aren't more glow in the dark ocarinas. Maybe I'll get glow in the dark paint and paint a DIY ocarina.

I know on Etsy there is an Island Ocarina Bb as well as a bunch of other keys like F# and Ab.
I wonder if people like that who do custom instruments would do a glowing one. That would be neat. I think the way that some Island Ocarinas transverse are painted with the stripe would be neat as glowing.

One thing to be aware of with Island ocarinas is that every transverse one I've seen is Italian fingered. I'm not saying that's a problem, just something you should know before you order one.
