Panch, your ocarinas are all type 1, right? Even pressure throughout.

Do you have any plans to make type 2 ocarinas, those that require increasing breath pressure and sound louder on top notes?

Yeah, all type 1 so far. Those are what I'm best at, and what I enjoy listening to and playing most.

I've thought about extending my product range to type 2's too, though most likely this will only be done on request of the buyer after I have my site up and running. :)

I've also experimented with giving type 1's a strong volume and tone, too. These have the basic principles of a type one, but have a stronger and more characteristic sound.

Gah... with ocarinas, if you know what you're doing, there's so many unique and interesting tonal possibilities! I don't know which to choose!

WOW! Interesting! It's a bass quad that shares some visual similarities with Focalink's forte triple. The finish is interesting... it has a very plastic appearance reminiscent of school recorders... which I actually like! Pity the forth chamber doesn't look too much better than TNG's quad, but taking the angled natue of this design, it doesn't look as out-of-place. The fact that it's a bass means that it won't be overbearingly high, too!
Great find!

Hahaha...just reading the translation shows they're kinda shocked by it: Translated Page

EDIT: After doing some digging, it is indeed a Focalink via their Chinese site, fypottery.com :facepalm:
