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).
