I was recently introduced to Zin Ocarina by my friend Ansangil:
http://zinocarina.com/

UPDATE: Their plastic models can be found for sale here:
http://stores.ebay.com/bokdung2

It came up in a conversation about plastic ocarinas.
He tells me that they have the BEST plastic ocarinas, made of polyurethane, which has a softer texture than other plastics and is high quality. He told me that their plastics are even better than Noble's.

Don't you just love the music that plays in their website :)
Unfortunately I couldn't find an email address on their site anywhere, and asked Ansangil to give them a call for me to see if they're interested in going international. Don't get your hopes up though, nothing's for sure yet!

I checked out the plastics and found a tenor c ocarina.

On the page it said '세계 최초 Tenor C Key 오카리나' , which google translated as World's First Tenor C Ocarina.

I HIGHLY doubt that. Can anyone contribute a better translation?

I'm guessing that this is what everyone else calls a Bass C. It's technically correct, since it's strange that some just skip over Tenor by going from Alto to Bass.

As for these ocarinas, I'm highly interested in acquiring one! You can usually guess how high-quality an ocarina is by how refined its geometry is (a personal theory of mine) and by that assumption, these must be very good ocarinas.

(EDIT: The plastic Tenor C is about 60 dollars, and the clay Tenor C is around 150 dollars. If my theory about it being a bass is correct, then this really isn't that bad of a deal.)

Probably means the first Plastic performance-quality Tenor C.

I love the color selection on those. Lilac, sky blue, and lime green FTW!
