Ocarina Kit in Walnut and Padauk
About This Product
This ocarina kit features pre-cut cut wooden pieces that are easy to assemble. The end result...a real musical instrument that plays the full scale using only four finger holes. You'll be amazed at the quality of these parts and how precisely they fit together.
This is a great project to do alone or with friends. It's a perfect activity for parents and children to do together. Looking for the ultimate party favor? Everyone will enjoy making their own ocarina from this kit. It can be finished in natural oil to let the wood show through, or painted in a variety of non-toxic paint colors to suit the whims of the maker. Let your personality shine! (Non-toxic paints are available from nationwide craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's.) What a great introduction to the craft of woodworking!
All the parts come packaged in a nice little metal box that can serve as the ocarina's home when the kit is completed. Also included are complete assembly instructions and a fingering chart with free songs. See the fingering chart Here

This kit is very nice, i loved it from the first sight! I've chosen the padauk version as the wood itself looks really beautyful, it also has a really nice "smokish" smell. The kit was easy to assemble and it is easy to play, too bad the ocarina can't play all the accidentals but probably it's just something that can't be done with that body configuration, otherwise there's nothing bad about it. Tiny, fun, and super light!

Well Charlie - it's been almost a year since I orded my Oc Box kits - and I Finaly found my Round Tuit to get a'Round to it' to begin assembling them :)
A few of my tricks that I discovered were helpful:)
1. I followed your advice.
2.I used a candle and covered ALL the holes and then blew into the mouthpiece of the Oc Boxes to see where there was an air leak. (Leaking air made the candle flicker)
3. I used fingernail polish to 100% coat the insides and outsides.
4. I used vaseline on my fingertips to make sure I had a 100% sealed fingerhole.
5. I put my round tuit in a place where I could find it.
Thanks Charlie - the Oc Boxes really do sound nice but that 'round tuit' is the absolutely necessary tool the assembly person must find first.

This tiny stuff is just awesome!! I've ordered 2 a few months ago, but I did not have time to build it. I started to assemble it yesterday, and finished it now. I just can't believe it. It sound so great! I have a few clay ocarinas, so I have other ocarinas to compare. I can't say anything bad about this wooden kit. Sounds great, and it was also fun to build it.
One thing is sure. After sending this review, I'm going to order some more for gift to my friends! :)
