Sopranino Sweet Potato in Sandstone Corian
About This Product
The Sopranino is the smallest and highest pitched of my sweet potato ocarinas. The tone is sweet, pure, and pleasant...without any hint of the harshness sometimes associated with higher pitched ocarinas.
Corian is a very dense and water proof acrylic material that is produced for the high end counter top industry. I like it for these small ocarinas because its smooth surface allows me to create very fine and accurate voicing which translates to a pure and sweet tone. To reduce moisture buildup while playing, the windway incorporates a cedar block. Each of the three points of the triforce is cut from a 1/8" thick sheet of contrasting corian and then inlaid into a matching recess in the surface of the ocarina. After the surface is sanded down to 1200 grit, great care is taken in polishing these little jewels so that they shine like gemstones.
The instrument comes on a removable cord for hanging around the neck, as well as a drawstring carrying bag for protection. A fingering chart and complete care instructions are provided on the website.
