My kids wanted an ocarina so they could play the songs from Zelda. I had no trouble at all finding sheet music, chords, and instructional videos on Google and YouTube. The only down side is the appearance; like some unfinished plastic component. The craftsmanship is sturdy and it looks like it will last for some time, but more colors or decals would be an improvement.

My girlfriend really wanted an ocarina so while I was making a big order from Musician's Friend I figured this thing was SO cheap that I couldn't go wrong.

Well, I went wrong. As most of the other reviewers have stated this is a piece of junk. It's poorly crafted, cheap quality, and the shoddily molded halves don't join correctly so it's extremely difficult to play it and have it make sound.

If you take your fingers, the ones you should be using to play this ocarina, and use them to seal the many molding imperfections across the seam, it actually doesn't sound that bad. The downside of this technique is that you can't actually play it because your fingers are occupied.

It's really more novel or decorative than anything because it doesn't actually function out of the box as an ocarina.

I guess I'm going to have to try to seal up the seams so it cam maybe be played.

      This is the only Ocarina MusiciansFriend currently carries. It is a cheap plastic toy that leaks air and sounds terrible. Look for a better quality Ocarina elsewhere, this one will just frustrate anyone trying to learn.

        when i was looking for some ocarinas i bought by its price but when i started to play got a lot of flat sound and not the exact note that i was looking for i would say this is only for collector and kids to introduce them to music

        Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

        I bought this for my five year old brother who loves Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, and I looked up all the tabs and everything for the songs from the game. Once I recieved the ocarina, I was a little unhappy that it was red and not blue as pictured, but it was not a big deal. He still loves it, even though there's not much of a change in pitch.
