Lee Tae Young Ocarinas; Availability to USA

Does anyone know about Lee Tae Young Ocarinas?

I have seen information about these through videos by Jinook Kim "Odoc" and was wondering if these are available for order and shipping to USA.
Not knowing Korean seems to limit my ability to navigate the maker's website to find the information myself. I tried to contact Jinook Kim, but I do not know if he visits TON anymore to see my message.

Can anyone help me here?

Any guidance is appreciated.
Thanks,
Soren

Not knowing Korean either, I will suggest the obvious: maybe you should use Google translate to navigate the website:
https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fleetaeyoung.co.kr%2Fshop%2F&edit-text=&act=url

I found a contact e-mail address quite easily, maybe you should try to send a message, perhaps along with an automatic translation. This is what I did when I purchased my first ocarina... I was concerned that the automated translation would be gibberish or insulting, but it was enough to communicate.


Unfortunately, I haven't found any thing related to international shipping.

Thanks for the response, Ocypode.
I was using Google Translate to try to navigate the site, but there were some text areas that made little sense.

I do not know how I overlooked the email for Lee Tae at the bottom of the home screen. This would certainly be the best form of contact!

It is not surprising that some text area are unclear or completely meaningless... I have had numerous funny experiences with automatic translations!

Best of luck!

I contacted Lee with a message translated to Korean. After back-translating the message multiple times, I am hopeful that my message makes sense to him.

I have one of his 13-hole AC Dragon ocarinas. It's nice to be able to hit that low G normally. It has a very high breath pressure. I don't play it very often, so I've never really gotten accustomed to it. But anyways, it's good you got his contact!

Did you have a photo of that ocarina Mark Chan? :)

I received it as a gift, so I really don't know how much it costs.

I got a response from Lee. He does ship to USA through a friend that has a bank account in the USA.

In his response he mentioned that an alto ocarina shipped to USA would cost about $150.
He is planning to get back to me with more details.

...and an order has been placed! Cost including shipping to USA is $150 for a 3C (C5 SPN or Alto C) with clear finish, not lacquer finish.
