General Discussion / Silencers

Disclaimer: Karl sent me some silencers before they were released.

The silencers are fun. I can watch movies (as long as the movie isn't too loud) while playing, and to my sister it just sounds like I'm blowing into a straw, lol. I've tried my best to be annoying while playing with the silencers in, but I couldn't get anybody to tell me to stop, so they're a success. The best part is how small they are and convenient to install and remove.

Introductions / Hello from Iowa

Hi, I used to be "tone deaf" as they called it. At 18 though, I got myself a soprano recorder, then an alto, and a tenor (The tenor is so nice and quiet) and taught myself how to play music. From there I got into clarinets, flutes, and ocarinas. My singing voice improved, so I took up ukulele and then mandolin. It's been 8 years of music, and surprisingly, people like it.

Somehow I got most of my friends either to take music back up or to learn it, and now we jam out to hymns or other songs that glorify Jesus.

I'm still getting the hang of the CODA, only had it for a week, but I like it much more than other ocarinas for a few reasons:
  • The dynamics are great, they're like the opposite of the recorder, so on the CODA the low notes are louder.
  • The ergonomics are just great, it fits in my hands great, the belt clip is just wonderful. (Mine fell off, but Karl is sending me another. His customer service is too good)
  • The fingerings and the range are just pleasant.

Questions and Answers / Who uses polyphonics?

I know the coda isn't really designed for polyphonics, but I find that the lowest few notes on both chambers can be played simultaneously fairly well.

I saw Eendbass had a video with a little bit.

Anybody else experiment with the polyphonics?

Since the fingering on a coda is fairly linear, with some reworking, I think it might be possible to set the holes closer together so that the holes on the left hand side and the right hand side could be covered with one finger. This would allow the 2 octave chromatic range of the coda with just one hand. Then, you could play while reading a book, while driving, while surfing the net, etc.

You would slide your finger to the full position for covering both the left and the right, and slide it half way for only playing the left holes.
