Questions and Answers / Mountain ocarinas?
« on: March 12, 2019, 08:46:57 pm »
Sorry if this has been asked before and I missed it, but are the old Mountain Ocarinas going to come back in stock at some point now that the Coda is out? Not trying to rush anybody, I know Coda is still new and there'll be a lot to sort out, but it'd be nice to know I'll be able to get my poly G sometime in the future.

He means the fingerings for each chromatic, I think. I noticed that as well, but I figured out the MO's chromatic fingerings by trial and error rather than looking at a fingering chart, so it may be that I just discovered a different one and the Coda is more picky about the exact fingering.

Hi Lolly, I think you're right, there is a bit of difference in breath pressure to get different notes right. I didn't notice it at first because I'm used to traditional clay ocarinas, which are all like that. Don't worry, your ear and your breath control will develop as you play more and you won't even have to think about it.

Heck yeah! Much as I'd love to be able to sit on a rock beside a creek and play my bass or a piano, probably not happening... I've always loved the durability of the MOs and now Coda as well. No need to baby them when I'm climbing or walking in rough terrain.

I live in a trailer park and sometimes my mail gets delivered to who-knows-where, but fortunately this was not one of those times! I'm busy getting ready for a trip, but I've played it a bit in spare moments and we're getting along swimmingly. I also noticed that, apart from the clip, the shape bears a slight resemblance to a legless grand piano (with the mouthpiece as the front/keyboard), which seems appropriately ironic. I'm used to transverse doubles and triples with only the right hand used for the upper chambers, so it's going to take some getting used to, but I love the sound!

*takes notes in case my Coda ever becomes possessed by an evil spirit and I have to destroy it*

I've been playing various ocarinas for 2 years, now. While I generally prefer 12-hole transverse, I really liked the sturdy construction and inline style of the original Mountain Ocarinas - I had both the poly G and C.

I am delighted to finally have the opportunity to play a MO style ocarina with the extended range I've been missing. Nearly all the songs I wanted to play needed at least one extra note either up or down! :) Mine should be arriving practically at any minute (per tracking), and I can't wait to start playing!

Same here! I have a small collection of ceramic transverse ocs and a couple plastic ones for the car. I love my poly C, though they went out of stock before I could get a G, but I often wished I could go just a bit higher for some of the songs I play a lot. Still waiting on my Coda, hope you enjoy yours!!

Thanks, good to know. As long as it can survive being dropped, rained on and generally knocked about, that's good enough for me!

I'm Lee, and I play a few instruments including piano and bass guitar, but mostly ocarina--because, whaddya know, it's the only one I have small enough to have it always sitting next to me while I'm working. I have a triple bass, bass C, contralto G, couple of tenor Cs, alto G (my favourite; the Aria G from STL) and soprano C ceramic transverse ocs. I also love the abbreviation 'oc'. I keep a few plastics in my car, joined by the poly C Mountain oc, which I'd very much like to supplement with a warmstone at some point... but I'm really looking forward to trying out the Coda and adding an instrument to my EDC collection.

On the subject of dropping Codas into chili, anybody know yet whether the Coda is as tough as the poly Mountain Ocarina? I know it's sturdy enough to get sat on and take some knocks, but I'd like to know whether I can freely abuse it as much as the poly (which I would have very little fear about dropping into a crock pot, other than the trouble to rinse it out.)

Really excited to get my Coda. When I realised it was a double-chamber ocarina with the same fingering for both chambers, I remember saying out loud to my computer screen, "How the heck did they do that!? That's so frikkin cool!"
