When Noble first started making multi-chambered ocarinas, they did not get overwhelming reviews on TON. Now that a bit of time has passed, does anyone know if they have improved on their original design, or how they sound today?

Yes, they are very good now. The new triples were improved in 2015 and are very nice. Good chamber balance and nice weight too. They have the Osawa style fingering. Here's a video from two years ago:

Oh man, don't add another ocarina to my list... Tell me something bad about it so I don't buy it! Lol

On a side note... that NWO tshirt is bringing back memories. Haven't seen them since I was a kid! Nash was a beast. My favourite was sting though. I still remember having those figurines and the wrestling ring

Thanks Mark, I always appreciate your insight! How do they compare to Focalinks?

I only have the Forte to compare to, but I think Forte is louder and also has a cleaner tone. But it's much heavier than the Noble. I still enjoy the Noble triple though. If I didn't already buy the Stein Triple Exclusive from Hans, I would have bought the Noble Triple.

That makes sense. The Nobles tend to have a bit more chiff, or breathines than the Focalinks, and I enjoy both on occasion.
