Received the Egyptian Ney pendant this afternoon and have been having lots of fun with it since!
Nice sound in a mysterious bittersweet scale.

I can't even imagine how you would hold that ocarina to play it, Wollemi. Do you have to insert your fingers through the handles on the sides to reach the holes? It's definitely unique. I've ever seen anything like it. Maybe Larry's spiral DNA helix ocarina comes close though.

Wow, a lot of cool and unique instruments. I can't imagine the effort that goes into those. Very nice.

So last night, I was sitting at my computer waiting for a huge game update to finish, so I picked up my harmony to play since said update was making the computer pretty unusable. When I went to put it down, my hand hit the corner of the computer desk and the ocarina went *flying* out of my hand, hit the tile floor, and bounced/skidded across the tile floor, through the whole living room, out into the mud room, and into the front door (about 20 feet away). I flinched every time I heard another bounce, and slowly walked to where it had come to rest, fully expecting it to be in a billion pieces. Not one single chip. o.O

Anyway, just thought I'd share! XD

I think Sean Duffy and his wife had their blessed event. I've seen some FB pictures of Sean with a very adorable little baby.

If you are reading this Sean, congratulations! She's definitely a keeper. :)

I really like his Middle Eastern tuned spear ocarina. I think Ill custom order one, but his double bass looks great too. Choices, so many choices. :)

He's understandably very busy right now, I've been waiting on a custom bass harmony myself for almost two and a half months now, which I'm perfectly okay with. It will just be that much more worth it when it's ready. :)

He takes custom orders. But he had a new daughter last month, so his priorities may have changed. :)

I'll watch this thread and see when he gets back into it. That will give me time to save. (Not that his prices are high.)

Welcome back! I just watched a bunch of your youtube videos and it looks like you make some really interesting ocarinas. Any chance you are going to be making your harmony/drone ocarinas?

So i can be home more often with my wife and daughter :) You will be seeing many improvements to my etsy store and inventory in the next week or so.

Which Middle Eastern scale? There are hundreds of them, and dozens in common use.

Do you actually know anything at all about any Middle Eastern musical tradition?

Any one you would like Jack. I know enough to know there are hundreds. But other than that i do not know very much about middle eastern music. I just copied a middle eastern scale from a fellow flute maker Named Erik. I do know alot about making ocarinas though :) and would love to make you one tuned to any set of notes you can give me within a three octave range. Judging by your questions and wording it sounds like you do know alot about traditional middle eastern music. You should check out the youtube video for that model ocarina and maybe you could tell me what the name of the scale is. That would be nice of you..Dont know if you are into that ;) I just know the scale sounds middle eastern :) and is fun to play with. One doesnt have to know much about music to experience the joy it brings. Peace to you brother hope i didnt offend you with my obvious ignorance in properly labeling my ocarina tunings lol.
