Of the three, Alto F is lowest, then Alto G is a whole tone higher, then Alto C is 2 and a half tones higher than Alto G. Just going up the scale.

Those ranges sound about right. A4 to G6 would only be about 1 and a half octaves, only a little more than a 12 hole.

This is the thread for it... I think it's in here somewhere :D

Basically, these aren't what I'd call 'performance' ocarinas. They're not terrible, but they are very quirky. They're not going to sound like a TNG purple clay, and they have a character to their sound all their own that not everyone is going to like. They're also not the best balanced for ergonomics though as his models have gone through improvments, they seem to be better and better. They're also not particularly 'pretty' and have no finish -- it's just raw clay -- so without paint they...kinda look like dead flesh. Even those with straw fire finish have a very raw look to them. All of this factors in to lower production costs, not to mention they're meant to be sold within China, where they need to be affordable :)
Thanks for your thoughts on the bull ocarinas. I'm not a performer - you'll never see me professionally on stage - or even unprofessionally on stage - with an ocarina, but I am pretty picky with what I want. I prefer ocarinas that aren't shrill, like a whistle. Would you say that bull ocarinas sound like that?
