Title: Hyrbid Ocarinas; Dymondwood & Corian
Post by: By The Rising Of The Moon on June 01, 2013, 08:12:34 pm
In the Year 2010, I purchased my first Mountain Ocarina. At the time of purchase, It was the only one of it's kind in stock.

I didn't know just how seemingly rare this particular type of Mountain Ocarina is, and thought this would be the best place to ask about the availability of such Ocarinas.

As you can see in the above pictures, this Ocarina has Dymondwood on the top and bottom, but a strip of beautiful white Corian in the center.

I had, at one time, spoken with someone who referred to one of his Mountains Ocarinas as a "Hybrid", but no further detail was given, so I'm assuming that the aforementioned Ocarina is what he meant.

Any information on these Ocs would be much appreciated.

WOW! Very cool and unique! Visually appealing, too. How does it sound? Thanks for sharing! I, too, would be interested in hearing more about it.

How does it sound?

Sounds exactly like the other Dymondwood Ocarinas. There is a hardly tangible misalignment on the left side, but it has no effect on the sound, and it is so miniscule, I only realized it's existence after 3 years.

Very nice looking.  I have never heard of one like it.  Maybe Karl or Cliff will tell us something about it.

I certainly hope they do.

Yes, we made this construction of ocarinas for a short period of time. After some time Karl decided to not continue making these hybrid ocarinas. I think that one of the reasons for not continuing was that there is the potential for "joint" between the warmstone and hardwood to become noticeable with seasonal changes in humidity.

Thanks for explaining that to us, Cliff. :) I've had no issues at all, and I still love playing my Ocarina.

Someday someone will post images of their ultra-super-hybrid which has a poly bottom, warmstone middle, dymondwood top and aluminum interior  :D
