http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=12261345773& is a link to the quad bass C. It doesn't say "improved version" which worries me. I was told specifically to make sure it says "improved version".
That's the exact same link I ordered mine from. The photo of my quad is in this thread already.

And its fine, even though its not "the improved version"? I "think" I recall Stephen being the one advocating for the improved version since the old ones had issues. Does this ring a bell?

I think the quad was developed after the other ocarinas were improved. Hence, there was no older version to improve upon.

Define the 'improved' version.

Stephen posted a photo of his, and there are differences in the placement of subholes, and mine has more line markings. I'm pretty sure mine is a more recent version than his. It looks to me the ocarina maker is making tweaks to his ocarinas.

They are actively improving on them constantly, but at one point there were two types for sale, the regular and the improved.

I just emailed them to see if there is a way I can get one of the Quad's shipped to the US... Sigh, I hope so... I had quite a hard time reading it using google translate...

Go to the link provided for the toaboa store in a browser that translates. Go to where you see the thumbnails of everything for sale and you will see some ocarinas specifically labeled as "improved version".

Here: http://gutaozigongshe.taobao.com/ On the left of the page, you have all the sorts of ocarinas sale by the "bull". No need to translate: It begins from quad, until one chamber (cf. photos), with the key indicated.

I realize that, for the triple and quad, a thing worries me. It seems that there is no angle between the breath path and the holes alignment: It looks more like straight flutes glued together than an ocarina, what a pity!
