12 Hole Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time #REVIEW #ocarinaoftime
I have a young friend who loves The Legend of Zelda. Really, what gamer doesn't? It's a great old game. The characters are familiar folk and tend to become part of the family after a while.
The Ocarina is certainly a treasured prize to win!
Only recently did I discover that the Ocarina of Time had been made real! Here it is... and it's really a very beautiful, unique musical instrument.
Sadly, I've tried to play it but I am not musically inclined. Useless is the word that comes to mind. :)
The Ocarina has 10 openings on the front size and 3 on the back. Placement of the fingers on the holes allows the player to make lovely musical notes and play tunes of all kinds. The booklet included has several songs to be learned and played.
There is a lovely purple ribbon attached so that the player can carry the Ocarina around the neck or on the shoulder. It's a bit heavy, but I really like that. It's not at all flimsy. It's well-constructed, quality workmanship.
*Handcrafted and tuned
*Kiln-Fired Ceramic Musical Instrument
*Pitch: A4-F6 including sharps and flats
An easy to learn piece which can be mastered in a short period of time, with the ability to spend years improving your technique, discovering new scales and harmonies. The Ocarina is the perfect instrument to practice techniques and articulations, rhythms, speed development, precision, note transitions and different musical styles.
I think this would make a great holiday or birthday gift for the gamer (or musician) in your life. I know I can't wait to see the big smile on my friend's face!
