I've been interested in getting one of these since I first saw the teasers for them, but there seems to be an issue with the email alert system. The concept seems unique, and I know Durian's commitment to his ocarina's quality. (The star key was never intended for or marketed towards ocarinists, especially this community.)
‎"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." -Marcus Cole, Babylon 5

The ocarina design is pretty for me, but the way is more a toy that a real instrument....
And of course you are paying about 70-100 Usd for the real isntrument, the other 200 usd.... yes, for a mechanism for kids..
I will pay at most 120 for that thing... NOT MORE :/

EDITED:
I forget to ask something...
Why NEVER show a photo of the back? Is very AWFULL to eyes? Hahaha.

Although I did order one, I don't think it would be worth over $300 Canadian. Of course I'll see when I get it, but I still don't think I'd pay that much for an alto ocarina.

I wouldn't say it is a mechanism for kids. I'm sure kids would also enjoy it but the light has more use than just entertaining looks and just because it lights up it doesn't mean it is a toy. It is still just as much an instrument as every other ocarina they sell. It just happens to have an extra function. I really don't understand this mindset people seem to have that if a child likes it then it shouldn't be for adults.

Welp, couldn't resist. I bought the rogue one available. As soon as I snapped it up the site said they were out again, so there really was only one. Weird, but whatever. I got my hands on one.

Not going to offend but... are all you, Tonians Millionaires? I mean, every extrange, expensive ocarina that is made, all of you purchase it, maybe only if that ocarina is pretty extrange... Because If a real SERIOUSLY company of ocarina maker makes an amazing ocarina, ANY of you buy it.

I'm certainly not.(I'm a student on top of everything else) I wanted a Sol but didn't buy one because I lack the funds.
