Hi guys, I'm Robert, the creator of Pure Ocarinas. The ocarina became my passion in 2011. Inspired by the unique sound of the instrument, I began researching how to play them well, and how to make ocarinas that sound reliably over their entire range.
Pure Ocarinas make no compromises. They are concert quality musical instruments designed to make complex music easier to play. These ocarinas are comfortable to hold, with great ergonomics, accurate tuning and a minimal breath curve.
I also compiled my research into a fantastic book, Serious Ocarina Player, so that you can also learn how to play the ocarina well, and share this beautiful instrument with others.
I received my Ocarina yesterday and I've had difficulty putting it down. The breath curve is incredibly even and the tone is crystal clear. I fully recommend this to musicians who want a quality, capable instrument for their Ocarina!!
I purchased an Alto C and it surpassed my expectations. It is smooth, easy to play, and gives a concert quality sound.
I appreciate the ergonomics, and the shellac finish gives mine an amazing feel. The notes are clear. I would highly recommend a Pure to anyone who is looking for a professional ocarina.
It is an amazing musical instrument in the way it looks, plays and sounds. I am very happy with it! The fact that it is not a high breath ocarina and that I do not need ear plugs when I play it makes it my dream ocarina.
The Alto C Pure Ocarina (Shellac) is a great musical instrument. It is truly ergonomic, possibly the most ergonomic ocarina available on the market. I truly hope many musicians will be able to try and to appreciate the value and quality of Pure Ocarinas.
After being terribly disappointed by some other ocarina purchases, I was delighted to play a skillfully-made instrument that holds a lovely tune. Playing my favourite folk tunes on this ocarina is a delight.
