Hm, it may have any sense to fill the seal with anything like "blu tack" or anything like that?

Good idea! Thanks, Spatolo!
I wonder, why didn't I think of that? I had a packet of tack in my desk all along!
It's not blu-tack (this one is white and feels "gummier" than blu-tack), but it's the stuff I use to hang posters on the walls without damaging either. Sticks to the surface of the poly G like a dream, but also comes off easily and leaves no residue.

I finished an ocbox. Nothing fancy, just a recycled cardboard box stuffed with foam, two rough holes for the hands and one for the mouthpiece extension, which is a short piece of heatshrink tubing sealed with tack.

Then I spent most of the afternoon playing. This box only muffles the sound a bit... I'd say it's about 40%-50% quieter. But it makes a huge difference in the highest notes! Now I can play those at full blast without reserve.

Hey, this is great.

I'm very happy for you that you could get an item which works for you. And doing it with your own hands is for sure a satisfaction on itself.

Would you post some pictures?
I'm pretty curious.

Thanks!

As I said, it's nothing fancy, in fact it's rather crude... anyway here's a pic.
The box is upside down in the picture to show the holes for the hands. I took the MO out of the box to show the mouthpiece.

well it's not meant to look good, but to be functional. And actually it doesn't look that bad neither!

BTW, play-asia, lol. I ordered some retro games from them, too.

BTW, thanks for sharing. The attachment to the ocarina looks very effective.
