I just got an email from Noble Ocarinas that they are readying to set up an English version of their website, as well as (hopefully) having Paypal and Credit for international payment.

It would be really good to finally be able to purchase these ocarinas internationally ^^

Can you provide links to the ocarinas so we can look at pictures of them. My Korean isn't the best ;) it's been years since I have spoken any.

Sure thing!
However, you will have to use Internet Explorer to view the pages properly. Some links even have videos which will only play with IE too. (it's just how internet is like in Korea - IE has become a monopoly).

This is absolutely fantastic news!

I was considering making a purchase from them in the near future; this is going to make it so much easier.

This is most certainly good news. More quality ocarinas available for this side of the language barrier.

The Noble's website does work well, for the most part, on FireFox. The only issues I have found are that the video on the mainpage doesn't show up for some reason and the picture viewer applet thingy doesn't work. But the sound samples (which are on each ocarina's page) works, atleast most of them.

And for the record, the currency used in South Korea is called South Korean won (or just won), so you can convert the prices to your currency to get an idea how much the ocarinas costs. You can use Google to convert currencies: 10000 won in eur. Just change EUR to your currency.


Btw, does mean "out of stock"?

Hmmmm... about $100 USD at current exchange for the black double... since Paypal doesn't accept payment KRW (correct me if I'm wrong), here's hoping they offer fair prices in USD.

The sound samples are a nice touch... the site works fairly well in Safari, but as others have reported, the window allowing you to zoom in on the picture doesn't appear to be functioning properly.
