New Aria!

== Cirno -- Opinionated Baka ==

Cris Gale (OcarinaDiva) and STL Ocarina are happy to announce the release of a red and black Aria tuned in G. The alto/soprano G plays from E5-C7, and is intended to be a beginner friendly Aria ocarina for all hand sizes. It has a slightly rising breath slope and a nice balanced tone. It has a lower breath requirement than its AC counterpart which gives it a soft mellow tone.

The Aria SG releases on Thanksgiving day (November 22nd) and will cost $50. It will be available exclusively via STLocarina.com for the holiday season. A full product overview is coming soon!

Oh my goat, it is gorgeous!! And it's tuned in G? Fabulous. So far I think that's my favourite key. The red is quite stunning :) I can't wait to hear samples and watch an overview!

I think they mean it's exclusive to STL through the holiday season - meaning, possibly, that Cris won't have any in her personal inventory until after that. But she'd have to verify that. ;)

It's beautiful - definitely adding it to my list, too. :D

Oh, that just means that STL will be the only place to buy it for the holiday season.

I'm planning a big order of ocarinas in January, so I'll stock them in my store them :)





Thanks for all the nice feedback everyone :)

I like the breath req of the present Aria personally, but am very excited about this one! Will it be available in black matte as well later?

And to add: I would definitely get a bass, and a alto/tenor G would be great as well. I want a whole happy family. :3

I nominate the Aria as the oc of the year for 2012.

More so than just being pretty, the spiral tail is 110% functional as well! It's quite the innovation in ocarina ergonomics in my opinion.

Oooh, yes, there should be an Aria series!

Red: Soprano G
Green: Alto C
Gold: Alto G
Blue: Bass C

Or something like that. :D

Sorry to crush your dreams, but I just don't see the elegant shape of the Aria going any further below Alto/Tenor F. It'd just get too fat.

I respectfully disagree--the form would have to be modified, certainly, but I firmly believe that the aesthetics and function of the concept are able to extended. It simply must be done intelligently. It is, of course, not as simple a matter as making it a larger copy--but that doesn't mean that a larger model in the series is impossible or that it would be inelegant. :)

Oh I don't know, I reckon it could still work - instead of making the ocarina fatter, just upscale it (well, I know it's not quite that simple, but you get what I mean). The exact shape of the body doesn't matter, just the total volume.

The Aria SG will probably be available in matte black at some point, but probably much later.

Future tunings are dependent upon how commercially successful the Aria AC and SG are. I think we'll probably take things one ocarina at a time, but I'd really like a Tenor G or F in blue to be next.

Also, I really want to say thank you to everyone. Your enthusiasm is really amazing and I really don't know what to say.

We can definitely aim for commercial success, Cris! An ocarina this beautiful will be pretty hard to keep UNDER the radar :) Even harder not to fall in love with. I hope it is successful! I cannot wait for future designs and colours!

Edit: Oh, and I'm with Fenix. We will make it happen! :pirate:
