Take a tip from professional studios - make a wire coathanger into a circle and stretch a pair of tights accross it. Place this between the ocarina and the mike. This will prevent popping noises from the mike caused by breath noise or wind noise from the ocarina.

Excellent tip!  Now i just need to get a decent digital stereo recorder.  I'm finding it difficult to justify spending $300 on a recorder.  I just need something that works fairly well without a high price tag.

I hadn't heard of that before.  I'll do some research and find one.  Thanks for the tip!  Maybe one day I can put one of my attempts on the board to share with everyone.

I couldn't fail to disagree with you less.

How about this?  http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/Musicians-Gear-Handheld-Digital-Recorder?sku=582222&src=3WWRWXGB&ZYXSEM=0

I use one, and although I generally use an external mic, the built-in condenser mics work very well too.

more detailed instructions for a DIY approach - the embroidery hoop is a nifty idea.

I use (and would recommend) a Zoom H4 digital recorder but edirol, boss and several other firms do very similar devices. If you use the H4 try the different mike simulations. This may help you to get the sound you want. Try to keep the mikes away from direct breath sound. I find that above the instrument point downwards good. ( I used to be a television sound engineer recording a 40 piece orchestra for variety shows)
