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.

Alto Ocrina

By Bill Markuly

from Texas

Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

at least a 9
Great Price and seemed good quality. Don't know if I will ever be able to play it since I am hopelessly inept as a musician. Tried a recorder couldn't play it. Tried violin as a child, couldn't play it. Thought I could play sax in high school, but teacher used to throw erasers at me. Maybe I'll learn to pick out something with this. At this price and with free shipping, it's without a doubt the best deal anywhere.

Greatness

By Dart_the_legend

from Bowling Green, KY

Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

This ocarina is very good for a beginning ocarina player, easy to pick up and lots of fun, I originally purchased it because of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and once I started playing it, it became one of my favorite instruments to play. If you have a knowlege of music theory, you can play very well the first time you pick it up, if you don't you can still pick it up easily. Wonderful product

      Comments about Grover-Trophy C Alto Ocarina:

      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.

                  Produces terrible tone, and isnt really tuned to well.....anything. It would be MUCh more fortuitous to spend money on a better type of whistle, or, to take your money elsewhere and buy a nice clay ocarina. JUST dont buy a crummy little plastic one.
