Does anyone here have his "Wishbone" ocarina? I'm really curious about that one.

The wishbone "ocarina" is based on the Twilight Princess plant the Link uses to call upon Epona, the horse.

I have an extended range sweet potato. It is very fun to play.

I heard that it's quite limited and you can only play very few songs on it.

But from what I've heard, it's fun to just jam on it! =D

Here's couple Youtube videos of Wishbone flute.

Notice that it doesn't use the english style fingering system. I read that it has less range than normal 4-hole pendants.

Here's some pics of the Wishbone flute, it is very high pitched and has a very limited range. It's nice to look at, but not really much fun to play.

I wonder if Darryn Songbird could make a tuned Wishbone whistle flute if he wanted to.

Me too, that would be cool.
He could just make a bigger one to add holes for a wider range.
Or even make it a closed vessel, cause this one is open ended.

I would love to see Mr. Hind make a wishbone flute out of wood though.
That would be the awesomeness imo.
He does custom orders, but it'll cost big bucks.
Who knows I might win the lottery XD

So, it is basically a 4 hole pendant with that range and fingerings?

Well it is a 4 hole flute, but all the holes are the same size.
I don't know the exact range of this flute.
But I don't think it equals that of an english style 4 hole.

I have the 12 hole bass, and it looks like he switched back to 12 hole again, lol

Well if you haven't seen my review, here it is Songbird Bass Review

I like the 12 hole, because it doesnt require too much breath power ^^

Sorry for the double post but no one has posted in this thread in a long time so I think its acceptable.

Darryn Songbird has put new ocarinas up on his site since the last time I had been there. He calls them sculpted ocarinas and they are basically sculpture art and an instrument. You can check them out at His website, they are in the bottom right on his menu. They look great, I wonder how they sound?

I'm glad to see he's expanding his range, and producing actual transverse sweet potatoes.

^ Did he use reverb or any other effects in his video? If so his review is nigh well useless..

For so long the sculptural type ocarinas have mostly been of the English-pendant fingering system. Interesting to see a popular maker producing such an original sweet potato design.

I noticed that as well tune, i think it is good to not use reverb or any other after effects for reviews, which David does, and I like that! But for videos for pure entertainment, I don't care XD

tuneofwind: I watched his review but couldn't tell if he used effects. I.. don't think he did. After watching it, I feel the Muse is too low for my tastes. A tenor maybe? Looking for a dove review... *looks around*

I really like the dove.

The muse is cool but I don't want to play an ocarina with a human face. Has anybody else noticed that you have to play in to her hair?

I love the look and sound of their pendants. I'm planning to buy a baritone pendant when they restock on the 21st. I did find a distributor at Harmon's Music Shop, and they have other Songbird products too, but I was reluctant to buy from anywhere other than the official website.
