yamaha guitars are know to be pretty bad. Really just for beginners who don't want to get a proper one right away...

Yeah but Yamaha clarinets aren't usually *too* bad...I suppose they're a bit like TNG....fairly cheap beginner models. Not that they're bad or anything, they're just not *great*. :) Better saving that little bit extra for a Map or Foca....

I'd be suprised if there isn't one out there somewhere, do Yamaha have an official Japanese site?

Their guitars aren't incredibly crappy, just the ones most beginners get if they don't know how long they'll be playing or how serious they'll be. There are still some models underneath them in the way of quality. Like my friend who got it from the local home improvement store xD Only plywood guitar I ever saw. Sounded so crap! It cost about a tenth of what mine cost though :P

Yamaha grand pianos are alright, definitely better than their ocarinas XD

I second that.
I had a Yamaha piano for years and I loved it. <3

Nevertheless, I'd LOVE to hear the ocarinas before I judge them. lmao

I looked all over the Taiwan website and stumbled around the Japanese one and didn't find any listings for ocarinas. If any country has them, it would be those two (don't know any Korean to go around the Korean site). I don't think Yamaha has any plans in the near future to make it an actual product line and market it to the rest of the world.

That said, I'm appalled by the note names near the holes, that is so.. heinously ugly! They look.. very pointy. I wonder how they sound..
