Recently I picked up a Hind alto sweet potato and a Focalink pendant, before then I had only played the C and G MO. I love the Hind and the pendant, but I still love my MOs just as much if not more. The texture of the Mountain Ocarina tone is something I've become addicted to, the notes on other ocarinas are nearly too pure to me in many ways. I really enjoy playing a lot of fast paced Celtic music, and I think the MO is better equipped for that sort of music in many ways. But as ubizmo and others have stressed, it takes a lot of practice to get the hang of the MO. You have to grow into it, it doesn't start out sounding good. I was extremely disappointed the first few days I had mine, it took me awhile to get it to sound better than a dollar store recorder. But after a few days it was sounding good, and after 6 or 8 months it was starting to sound really good -- if you like the sound of these ocarinas from skilled players, just stick to it and you'll get the hang of it eventually. And don't do what I did -- it took me a long time to realize that the high D and E were "reversed" so I had been half holing the left thumb-hole to get the D in tune... silly me...
