Hiya, I recently purchased a Ocarina from E-Bay.

It's 10 Holed, but I don't know what pitch it's in. (Tenor, Bass etc.)

I've got a link to it, if it'll help...

It is most likely a soprano or alto C.

Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass are very loose terms. For example STLs "Tenor" equals a Maparam "Alto". You could use a tuner to find out the notes and compare them to the list of ocarina ranges in the articles section.

Or if you don't want to spend money and have a pretty good ear, you could listen to various sound samples and see which one your ocarina comes closest to in tone.
