Forum rules


In order to give ocarina makers a chance to edit their own information and add news and updates in the opening post of a thread dedicated to their business we ask you to follow the following rule:


If you are making a thread about another ocarina brand, only post factual information in the opening post. If that ocarina brand has a representative on Little Geese: The Ocarina Forum, it would be best to let them create a topic for themselves. Otherwise, if you want to post your opinion or a review, you can create a new post directly after making the first post to do so. Keep in mind that the first post of any thread in this subforum may be completely deleted to be used by the ocarina brand representative that is being discussed in the thread.


If you are an ocarina maker or a representative of an ocarina brand and wish to have a topic dedicated to your business, feel free to start your own, unless it already exists, in which case, please contact the user Bas or send an e-mail to , so that we can arrange it so that you can have the opening post.

Aw man, thats some sad news, but dont despair! I have many friends that have torn their ACL numerous times (bike racing, fencing etc) and while it does hurt like hell, theyve re-cooperated over time and have gone back to doing what they love. Youre lucky that youre still young though, that tissue should heal better than if you tore it when older.
keep positive mate, you can still make ocarinas in the mean time! ^.^

Thanks Ross. The only problem is that this is a retear. So I actually had my first surgery last august. Hopefully this time it will work though :/ anyways yeah I guess I will be able to still make ocarinas. But as I said, the first month or so will be quite difficult.

oh awesome stuff man! Theyre looking better and better each time ^o^
They do look very small to me, but without a technical reference, its difficult to really tell.

The right hand placement looks a bit better than before, though I would still put the fingerholes a tiny bit more up on top of the ocarina's top-curvature, like you would hold a bottle, thumb directly across from the fingers. Either way though, its looking better in general!
Im especially happy with the way you located the subholes. They look quite well positioned.

one other little thing I might suggest, is to elongate the nose a little bit more.
12 hole ocarinas, with asian fingering systems, have tricky hand placements when you release the two thumb holes.

Moderator edit: The discussion regarding the holding of the ocarina on high notes, is continued in this topic.

Thanks Ross. Here is a comparison to a tennis ball to give a better picture of its size.

length- 16.5 cm.
width- 9 cm.
depth- 5 cm.

Thanks man :D Now the only thing I think I really have left is fixing my sound problems I have been having lately. Time to go back to the drawing board :/ I have been experimenting with different sound hole shapes and have not had too much success with any of them. I think next time I will try elongating them more in order to hit the high notes properly. Also I need to play with how sharp my labium edge is.

Your website looks pretty nice. It would be even better if it had a link to LG on there somewhere :D.

I love that shape. More traditional... I like to see a fat ocarina instead of a more long shaped, normally they have a more sweet round sound

Thanks :D Yeah I really like this shape too. I wanted to make a comfortable and somewhat bulbous shape, but also wanted to have a little length such as chen ching ocarinas.

I decided to record a favorite song of mine called village rain. I adapted it to play only on alto C.

Thank you to Mr. Kuolong for the instrumental track.

I thought I would post some of my more recent work on here just in case some people haven't seen it yet. I've been experimenting with smoke firing and stuff like that. I think I got some nice results.
