The ocarina is a wind instrument with a beautiful pure tone. Pure ocarinas is committed to producing performance grade musical instruments to the highest standards.
I was absolutely astonished with the roundness and beauty of the sound. It fits well in the hand and I found it easy to find the finger positions. The split fingering on the lowest G / G# is considerably easier to use and, I think, more accurate than the usual sub-hole method.
I had the pleasure to meet pure ocarina's founder 2 years ago in Budrio and bought an early model of this Alto C, and I must admit that I can't stop playing it since then. High notes are incredibly easy to reach, the sound has this sweet round tone, and most of all the esthaetic is gorgeous.
This is a great ocarina that I use most the time when I'm home or in safe places. No need for acute bending for the high pitch! Great finishing!! Mine is 1 year old and looks like new.
This is a very good ocarina. Well worth its money. The ocarina sounds great. The size is remarkably small for an Alto C, which is a good thing. Also its weight is really low. All in all, I highly recommend this ocarina, along with the Alto D and the Soprano G, which are excellent too.
As soon as I started to play the scale on the Pure Alto D, I knew I had a winner in my hands. The ocarina had a clear,and clean sound all the way up and down the scale. No weakness in the upper notes and a solid subhole note. The overall balance of the ocarina is good. It sits well in your hands with no danger or tipping when you lift off all your fingers to play high notes.
I liked this one, the green one, from the beginning! Its ergonomics are great and the fact that the design is actually made to ease some movements is impressive. The tone it's very light and Pure as I like to call it. The volume is not too loud for a soprano which is something I really appreciate. I highly recommend these ocarinas, this soprano G as well as the alto D model as I had the chance to try both.
This is a great ocarina which has a straightforward linear breath curve which makes it easy to play in tune. It is expertly designed with ergonomics in mind.
I have no criticism of this ocarina. From the moment I played it it was one of my favourite ocarinas I have ever played and I couldn't recommend them with more emphasis. These are perfect for beginners and professionals alike and I foresee more praise coming as Robert begins to sell more of these.
