I like its sound, and love how it looks, but I find my Spearhead more comfortable to play.

You find the spearhead more comfortable? I would think this would be one of the most comfortable ocarinas to play. But perhaps that's just in my experience and opinion. I do plan on ordering one of these to test it out myself.
Our songs will live on, and will be sung by our children, and by our children's children. This is how we will be remembered. This is who we were.

It seems like an inline form would be easier, but in my experience, it isn't.   I think the hands work better with asymmetry.  Also, because of the nature of 12 hole ocarinas, the highest notes tend to invite balance issues.  The inline takes a strong pinky and transitioning between high F and other notes quickly suffers as a result.  With a more transverse ocarina, I think this is a bit easier.

Hmmm, I see your point. Perhaps I'll go with another before I give the inline a try.

I would like to try an inline ocarina someday, but a strong pinky is something that I do not have. Do you think STL will ever come out with a lightweight plastic version of this ocarina? Or is weight not really a factor in the balancing issues?
