I vote for the Maparam Triple! It's mystique intrigued so many of us with its wondrous abilities when we first saw Willy play Hungarian Dances!
And yes, while OoT did introduce many of us to ocarinas, it is not to thank for all of it. For me, I was playing Majora's Mask in the Summer of '07 determined to finally beat it, later I decided to look up ocarinas on youtube...
I saw a video of Docjazz playing his Spencer(Song of Time, I think), and I thought that's cool, but still just zelda stuff...
Then in the sidebar I saw a picture of a Korean guy (Whooooo Willy
) playing what looked like Swiss cheese(Maparam Triple)!
I clicked on the video(below, I'm sure everyone has seen it) only to be inspired by the wondrous miracle that was ocarinas!
- [+] Spoiler
It was after I saw that video that I went back to Docjazz's channel to find out about getting my own ocarina since the website : http://www.maparam.kr
was all in Korean (that was before Kissing/Sam used his awesome Korean speaking skills to make Maparam ocarinas available to all of us English speakers! It was you right? Last year is starting to get a little fuzzy )
This is why I am voting for the Maparam triple as the OOTY!
I would vote for the Focalink Triple as well, but sadly that's not in the vote I really like both Maparam and Focalink for providing amazing Ocarinas to the non-asian world!
