“Forest Whisper” 12 Hole Ocarina Classic Straw fire Masterpiece Collectible

The Ocarina of the Forest Whisper is a great beginner’s flute. It is tuned by an excellent tuner to ensure that each tone reaches the standard before it is fired. The “smoked” Ocarina is burned in a high-temperature kiln with natural straw, so it will have a smoky smell, which is natural. In addition, straw fire craft can make the sound of the flute more gentle and easier to blow. Many customers are very concerned about the quality of the high notes on an Ocarina. On some poorly made Ocarinas, the high notes can be airy and even “blow out”. Or, the instrument can have a bad pitch. We’ve made targeted improvements so that you can easily blow out the high notes and also ensure that the pitch is perfect. For the highest two notes, you may gently blow into the mouthpiece so the sound will come out more clearly. The SONGBOOK also contains a collection of simple songs for you to learn. These songs are designed to be easy to learn.
