Hi, I'm Mathew :)

At Budrio earlier this year Noble were selling a plastic bass ocarina, which is shown by Mark's video here:



I'm not aware of any news since in relation to it, and this is one ocarina I am interested in. I'm wondering if anyone has more information as to when it will become available to the general public...

I seem to remember reading that they had a sample, (samples?) but were not.yet.in full production. I too would love more info and plan to buy one povided it's similar to the other AC version quality wise. I'm always worried about the regular Noble bass breaking in my practice bag...

Can't say much else than it sounds really good being plastic.. Also its price will make it a sure choice when it'll be available for everyone..
Btw I was the one recording the video :P

I'm really looking forward to this being released. The Zin plastic bass is a bit quiet and low breath for my liking.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but I just noticed the Noble Plastic Bass is on ebay and thought someone might still be interested. I think its being sold by the same person that sells the Zin Plastic Tenors on ebay.

I had a question and I figured I'd once again revive this old thread. I was thinking of getting the noble plastic bass, but was wondering how it compares with the zin plastic bass. All the reviews for the zin mention it that is has low breath pressure and is very quite. I assume the Noble has higher breath and is louder? Has any one had a chance to try the current available model? Thanks.

I spent maybe 3 minutes playing with the current model, and that was 1.5 years ago. So... can't really tell you much. It is much easier to play than the prototype though. Not as loud, and takes less breath than the prototype. I've had the prototype for over a year, but there's no point in talking about it since it's a completely different instrument.

It's very high up on my to-buy list. I'll probably order it within the next month or so and I also have the Zin bass, so I can compare as soon as I have it.
