That's a safe assumption.

I got my Echo last night, black & white one, it's beautiful. It's heavier than I thought it would be. Practiced a bit this morning and learned to play Happy Birthday. I really need to practice breath and finger control more.

I got this ocarina a few days ago, and it is beyond my expectations! So beautiful, and so great to play. It is very easy to figure out, and in a few minutes I knew all of the notes. My ears are very sensitive, so I have to put in ear plugs. Which means it wont be drowned out when playing with other instruments. Very, very good!

I'm kinda curious if I should get this as my first 12 hole ocarina, or if I should get the Zelda tenor. Can somebody help me with this decision?

The Echo is one of the easiest ocarinas to play from what I here. The LOZ Tenor is a little more different according to the review's I have heard. Cris Gale or OcarinaDiva(youtube) has a video review for each on her youtube account.

I'm mainly worried that it won't challenge me enough, and I'll get bored with it and never mess with it again. I'm seriously considering this ocarina though!

If it's your first 12 hole ocarina, I think you would be well advised to go with what is the most aesthetically pleasing to you. The echo tenor is easier to play overall because the OoT replica is very sensitive to breath, which can be seen on several YouTube reviews. That being said. It is mainly an aesthetic choice because the fingerings are the same on both of the ocarinas. The difficulty level and challenge is really determined by the song you are trying to learn. If you chose the OoT, you will have to spend some time getting your breath control down.

In addition, I think that you don't need to be worried about the ocarina not being challenging. In fact, one of the things I find so attractive about it is its simplicity. I think you will be glad with whichever one you purchase.
Go ahead and play your music. You never know, you just might make someones day.

Thank you very much for telling me this! It's very helpful! I'm about ready to make my final decision, but I'd still like to do a little more research, just to be sure this is right for me. ^-^

I was thinking about getting this one as my second ocarina, but I was wondering if it is louder than most ocarinas. If it is that isn't really a problem for me, but I don't want to get a really loud one. I was also wondering if it's sound was any different from the standard tenor ocarina, which I have now.

This ocarina is a louder, bolder ocarina.

I got my Echo tenor after I've had my echo Soprano for about as year. Definitely a step up! The sound is wonderful, and the fit is perfect! The sharp/flat holes aren't hard to hit, either! Love it!

Actually, it's 8 whole-steps down. ;) *bad musical pun* I'm glad you're enjoying your new ocarina. When you say "sharp/flat holes", do you mean the sub holes?
