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 beautful work of art with an exquisite sound. Truly Stunning. Last few!
Bass Duet Ocarina CC, 8-hole ceramic Handmade for Ocarina Workshop in the UK by John Langley, the Bass Duet measures 180mm (7.25 inches) and is tuned to A440 concert pitch. As with all our handmade ceramic ocarinas, the Bass Duet is beautifully glazed in aquamarine and supplied complete with cord in a presentation box for safe-keeping.

Langley Ceramic Ocarinas are played in school award-winning performances (see Media Video section). The English 4-hole fingering system is adapted to work with Duet Ocarinas. It remains easy to learn in conjunction with the charts in the Duet Ocarina Book. Different sizes of ceramic ocarina offer a variety of sounds to enhance any group or consort, from amateur to professional. To listen to each Duet Ocarina, visit the Media Sound section on this site.
