Okay, I  have taken on the challenge of learning to switch chambers. My one major complaint about my  mountain ocs is I couldn't play the star spangled banner. Being a veteran I am a tad patriotic. So over the last couple of days I have been working on learning to to play it. My mind kind of does this brain freeze when I have to switch chambers, its very annoying, but I am sure I will eventually get over it.

As usual, life has gotten in the way of my untalented musical aspirations. About a month ago a nephew showed an interest in music, so I gifted him one of my ukuleles. Teaching him has rekindled my interest in my ukes and coda. I ordered a new coda and am practicing again.

How about decorative or retractable lanyards? I'd like a semi clear emerald green coda to match my Outdoor ukulele.

Include more contemporary songs in your play book. I would buy a book that included the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift, Johnny Cash, Keith Urban, Cher. Maybe this would be a separate play book? I think others would buy it, after all, the Coda was designed to keep up with other musicians.

Got my Coda yesterday. Let me start with the negative and just get it out of the way. It is ugly, I thought French horns and accordions were ugly, but the Coda is worse. Then, I'm not very pretty either.

When I first played it I thought the fingering would take some major getting used to. Nope, got the lower chamber perfect the first time, the upper on my third. Then I noted(no pun intended) how clear the low C sounded. So I grabbed my dymond wood mtn oc and did a sound comparison. The low notes on the Coda sound so much clearer and louder.

Over all, the clip, the silencers, the SOUND, Karl, you knocked it out of the park. This was worth waiting 10 years for. Oh, and you need to mention the lanyard hole, that's a big deal for us military types. Very impressed you included it.

I watched a couple of this guys videos, he is actually a bit confusing. You on the other hand, tend to be very straight forward. Please keep me informed if you do a video on improv. Ocarina or ukulele.

Silencers, are fragging kidding me? There has been countless times I didn't practice because I think I suck and didn't want others to hear, or my ocarina was just to loud. I hope Karl reads this, incorporating silencers into the design of the Coda is absolute genius! Now it is really a play anywhere instrument. Because I think I suck, I will probably play it with silencers in most of the time, but at least I  will be playing. Absolute fracking genius Karl.

I'm a Mountain Oc fan that has been looking forward to getting this flute from the moment Karl first mentioned a possible pro-range design. I carried 4  mtn ocs and 2 ukuleles with me when I was deployed to Iraq as a medic in 2009. I'm not very talented, but once, I got up to leave the barracks so my practicing on my uke wouldn't disturb anyone, and I was asked to stay. Turns out a large majority of my infantry company liked my music. I liked the ocarinas cause I could throw them in my bag and take them on missions. I have a coda with silencers on the way, I feel like an over excited child waiting in anticipation.
