Hi,
I propose to you the latest achievements of High C.
Were used three new molds:
in the upper left is a "Old Type" in the upper right is a "Sweet Potato Type" in the middle two "Type Z" (Oot).
The samples will be finished.
Highlights:
The hold has a powerful tone, the Sweet Potato because the particular form in a very skinny tail, has a particular sound, very "pointed".
The Oot is in three versions: quiet tone, medium tone and strong.

Hi guys.
I developed an ocarina suited to play in the home.
We say that the characteristics of relative quiet.
Requires an intensity of breath a very small, like a Spencer or Ogawa ocs.
Exerts an average sound pressure of 80-85 dB.

Hi guys
I show you my first 11 holes with a Japanese fingering. Range from B4 to F6.
Structured like the sound of Budrio ocarinas.
Now we must wait for its drying and firing.

Hi guys
I developed new molds for ocarinas, together with changes to all popstick for a new conformation of the windway.
I present some pictures of a new Alto "C". has improved the overall efficiency.
I do a standard version with 12 holes of classic sound oriental.
I also make a special version but it requires more work.
This additional work has an additional cost of 30%. In compensation the ocarina "sings".
In both cases there is no need to maneuver the Acute bends.

Hi
The Sweet potato type is actually very successful:
has a powerful sound and melodic, and incredibly ergonomic. Did not require any countersinking holes around the sub. Still requires a laborious tuning and careful selection of slot stic for the windway.
I do not have at the moment of his ilk. I replaced with the type II low in the images.

Hi
I did not understand at what ocarina you mean:
- If it's the type Zelda, is suitable for those who blow gently (ocarina is quiet);
- If it's 11 holes Hold type, has no problems controlling the breath. For the record it had a crack at the base of the mouthpiece. This problem was quickly sealed and does not prejudge the quality of sound.
Do not have a website, but an account Faceboock. See below the avatar. For questions on sales, use a PM.

Giorgio

I am a new happy and proud owner of my very own Cataldi ocarina. It arrived today, and Giorgio specially made it for me as part of our trade (my ocarina for him is in progress!). It is a brilliant ocarina, much better than a lot of Alto Cs i have tried over the years. Thankyou again Giorgio!

I made ​​the first five copies of the new Sweet Potato High "C", version III. The performances are remarkable. Have high backpressure and at the same time is high also their reactivity. The sound pressure level of 001 is monstrous.
I have attached a comparative table with an illustrious rival: a C3 Rotter.
Next will be available in version with low back pressure and low pressure level (quiet).

Let me know when you're selling to the public again! I remember you had told me a few weeks ago that you were too busy to take new orders but please keep me posted when you are!

The ocarina almost looks like it doesn't have a finish. The shellac really is beautiful.

EDIT: I'm curious, Kalasinar, if it sounds similar to the Maparam Alto C. The voicing hole looks almost identical to the holes on the back of my Maparam Triple.

EDIT 2: I found a pic of a maparam single to show voicing for comparison. I just thought it would be interesting.

In fact, those that have been realized see above. In particular, the serial no. 001 and 002 about four months ago, the 003, 004, 005 have been realized on input of some forum members who need an ocarina with high back pressure. At the moment, however, after the measurement of sound pressure, I decided that the 001 is not available for sale. I keep it as a reference for comparative tests. The other two are not finishing the 003 and 004. The latter are not available for sale because I did not meet standards that are imposed. I'll see if by next fall I can make some other exemplar which falls in the standard of marketability. With regard to Kalasinar, it has a different sound from a Maparam. is very rustic, earthy, who could remember the classic Italian ocarinas.

Without wishing to continue with the defense of my ocarinas, not just a form to give a corresponding sound.
For example, my Standard Type 005, my avatar has a type of sound that my ear is indistinguishable from that of my AC Maparam selected by Paul Gavelli.
For my Sweet potatoes III can give four types of sound: pure sound (as on my last Maparam Gavelli), pure sound with a tendency to "sing" (as in some Maparam AC); earthy sound like Ocarina of Kalasinar; sound Italian like a 10/11 holes that I sold to Kresimir.

I present to you the fourth version of the AC Sweet Potato. Compared to previous versions I have tried to optimize the volumes and proportions. You'd think that the form does not have anything new. Up to this stage of testing, however, this is the shape that gives more efficiency to the system 12 holes. These first two examples are made of clay standard red and red clay pan (Material fantastic for lightness and malleability).

I very much like the natural 'ramp' of these (rather than the 'ice cream scoop' ramp many makers - including I - use).

Do you find it helps the tone, or is this just an 'aesthetics' thing? :)

I totally will end up with one of your ocs when I can set aside the money for one! I get new "toys" fairly frequently, but only stuff I can spend business money on for "research, development & testing" as items for my shop. Then I can legitimately use business money for it rather than personal funds. Mass manufactured ocarinas I can potentially wholesale count, but artisinal ones are a bit of a stretch in the eyes of the IRS. :o

No, no. It is not only aesthetic. A noticeable effect is its small diameter holes at pinky, ring, middle and index finger of the right hand. This is because, among the factors which affect the area of the holes for the fingers, one is the corresponding volume within the area for an influence of the hole itself. This factor, ends indirectly to drag down the size of the remaining holes around the "Dome" (the whole area around the hole in voicing).
At the end of all of this gives greater efficiency to the instrument.

This exemplar of the latest version of the High C will ship to Alessandro (Delorean) waiting for a performance demonstration. The tone is deliberately structured so slight. harmonics are very mixed. The objective is to smooth the two extremes that may otherwise never meet: the italian ocarina and the Korean/Jap ocarina. As usual, the volume and tonal stability are comparable to the 10 holes.

Continue my quest to understand the role of the shape and proportions of the sound characteristics of the ocarina.
I submit a High C 12 holes long tail.

That's a beautiful ocarina Tytoalba. I like the long tail. It helps in stabilizing the ocarina on high notes since it gives the right pinky something to grab onto. :)
