I wouldn't say that it's difficult to play, but the fingering is different from the 6 hole pendant and the 12 hole transverse, so it does take some getting used to.  It comes with a fingering chart, so if you spend some time practicing the scale, it becomes much easier. 

The three highest notes are played by lifting the left thumb, then sliding the right thumb so that it uncovers one hole, then lifting the right thumb so that it uncovers the last hole.

It does have an unusual fingering, but from my experience, the quality on this model is first rate.

These aren't made by TNG, but they do come from Taipei, Taiwan.  A coworker friend went to visit Taiwan, and she brought me back a couple of these ocarinas.  The fingering is very different from the english pendant, but I like the way they sound.  :)

Here's a video I made a few years back with the transverse 9 hole.  BTW, the 9 hole pendants use the same fingering as the 9 hole transverse:

I think the reason why the 12 hole ocarinas are more popular is because the fingering system is more linear, so it's a lot easier to learn when you first start playing.
