***NOTICE: This is a preorder. Due to extremely high demand, all ocarinas are currently out of stock, but new ocarinas are being made and will begin shipping in January. Thank you for your patience!
The Virtuoso Series double alto C ocarina features an extended range of over two octaves, opening up a new world of musical expression. This instrument is essentially two ocarinas fused into one compact, seamless form. In addition to smooth tonal transition between chambers, Virtuoso Series ocarinas feature a right thumb hole, which conveniently allows the lower chamber to be played like a standard single chamber ocarina while also giving the player the option to play high E and F without switching chambers. Available in 2 subhole formats (more info).
