I think it is always interesting to see what ocarinas everyone has in their collections, and i love hearing your thoughts on ocarinas you particularly love. So, here is a topic to post pictures and share experiences of your ocarinas!


I'll start off with my collection, it has taken me years to find my most favourite ocarinas, and i'm sure i'll need a few more years to complete my collection still. I hope to have a complete Woodsound, Takashi and Pacchioni set one day :D

I've owned many ocarinas in the past which i have sold, but i keep a gallery of all my current and past ocarinas here.



My ocarinas are for sale on eBay

My collection is currently narrowed down to these 7, I have sold all the other ones. Apparently I only own Focalink and Pacchioni ocarinas, I hope I can add some more ocarinas to this collection for a wider variety during the festival in Budrio.

This is my current collection after selling a few that I didn't really play.

I practise most with the Mountain Ocarinas, the Zin AC and the Rotter AC. For some melodies I also play the Songbird Bass and the Langley Alto D.

The smaller pendants are mainly for carrying an ocarina around my neck when I'm not home.

The FairyRingMushroom Alto G and the Robert Hickman AC are nice for improvising. I like to play those when I don't really practise anything.

The Rotter C1 sounds really beautiful, but I don't like to play it too often, because it's so bright.

I'm currently waiting for a Woodsound Bubinga Double. I'm quite sure that will become my favourite ocarina very fast.

On my wishlist are a Gosselink Alto Sol an Alto C by Jade and both Mountain Ocarinas as Warmstone versions. I'm also looking forward to the ProRange Mountain Ocarina very much.
Eventually I'd also like to play a Pacchioni and Takashi ocarina, but that is not definite.

@ nightshade

How is the breath requirements for your Fairy Ring Mushroom ocarina? I have one that I find difficult to play because it takes very light breath. You have to gently coax sound out of it otherwise it squeaks.

Yeah it's like that for the first 2-3 notes. The rest is ok. That's why I only play it for fun (not that practising isn't fun).
It sounds nice though and it works very well for slow haunting melodies.

This is my ocarina collection. It is small, but I continuously look for more ocarinas to add to it.

These are some of my old ocarinas. The link may not work, still figuring this out. I think it can be copied. Any help for a good site to store pictures that work with group would be nice. Thanks.

Moderator edit: Fixed the link so that is clickable. No need to use [spoiler] tags for links.

I use Photobucket for hosting images. It is fairly good at that, plenty of storage space and quick servers. What I dislike about it is that it is trying to become a photo-sharing social network, but I simply ignore all the features except the ability to uploading a picture and include it in a forum post using [img] tags. I only keep a single album there and it is set to private.
