Ocarina sounding extremely airy, having a hard time.
« on: June 05, 2015, 02:09:06 PM »
I own the STL Zelda alto C ocarina, (12 hole) and I'm having a hard time with it in general. Almost every note produced from it sounds awful, and airy. Before making this post, I read around, and I saw to make a "tu" shape with my tounge while blowing. and while it makes the very lowest note sound excellent, all of the other notes remain awful.


Another thing to note is that before buying from STL, I had purchased a Zelda ocarina from amazon, which I ended up returning due to bad sound quality. This one sounds nearly the same as the one I returned.

Am I doing something wrong? Did I get a duff ocarina? Am I just inexperienced?
