The Langley ceramic Bass Duet Ocarina CC is beautiful in tuning and in looks. Everyone is amazed at the richness and individuality of this Duet ocarina. Two Bass ocarinas are housed within the exterior body of a Great Bass and their voices blend superbly together. Enjoy the mysteries of playing in harmony or dissonance for wonderful effects. This is an ideal instrument for the performance of early music and also for exploring the wide repertoire of the Duet Ocarina Book. Because of the weight of this massive ocarina, we recommend it to adults only.

A beautiful work of art with an exquisite sound. Truly Stunning Collectors Item. Last One!
