I find the labelling of ocarina holes to be ugly and unnecessary.

Does anyone actually OWN a yamaha ocarina? I'd hate to have a bad reputation on them that are not based on fact.

Hmm maybe Ian has one of them and can share with us his opinions.

So far they look pretty ugly to everyone >.< I guess they might make up to it if they sound really good, but looks is also a part of their reputation xD

EDIT: So far I've been able to find a few yamaha vids with their ocarinas in them, but none where it's actually played >.< Somre more pictures can be found here:

I think they look "poorly glazed" because they are copies of the original Akita ocarinas. Thats the style, I would love to check these out but I don't like that particular sub hole configuration. I prefer the original Akita style with both sub holes played by the right hand. Allmost looks like those are 13 hole, 2 on the right one on the left?

If thats a 13 hole, that would be great! I bet it is. If its missing a thumb hole I would be extremely dissapointed, Looks like they are worth getting, just for the fingering configuration after all!

But I am poor!! :cry:

I would love to try one out, but I can't purchase any more ocarinas for a while.

Where do you see the 13th hole? I just see the standard 8 holes plus 2 subholes on all the ocarinas...

EDIT: never mind I see the third subhole on the red one now >.<

I had to do a triple take on that one too. I have heard the Gakki shop has a long wait for their flutes.
