The Langley ceramic Alto Ocarina sounds at the same pitch as the plastic Oc. It is the same size as the Oc and fits snugly in the palm of your hand.
The Alto has a rich, singing tone which will fill any concert hall and delight the listener. Ideal for solo and group playing, the ceramic Alto blends well with any other instrument and will add a richness to your group's sound. Its mellow tone and attractive appearance also make it the musician's and collector's choice. If you would like a ceramic ocarina – this is the one.
As with all our handmade ceramic ocarinas, the Alto is beautifully glazed in aquamarine and supplied complete with cord in a presentation box for safe-keeping.
A FREE Ocarina sampler booklet containing full instruction, fingering-charts and 8 tunes comes with each instrument getting you off to a great start!
Please note: this is a unique hand-made instrument and therefore the aquamarine glaze will vary slightly from instrument to instrument.
