What is an Ocarina?

An Ocarina is a wind instrument that is more or less a predecessor of the modern flute. It has the holes where you place your fingers to achieve a higher tone or a lower tone and the lip hole where you expel air. The main difference between your modern flute and an ocarina is that ocarina's have a rounder or flatter shape than the modern flute which is usually round.

How the Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Instrument is seen and used in the game


The first time the Ocarina was seen in the 2nd game of the Legend of Zelda Series called Legend of Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link but there was a mention of "The Recorder" in the first Legend of Zelda game. The Recorder is a musical instrument that will help the hero or Link on his adventures. The Recorder was in a shape of a modern flute unlike the more popular sweet potato shape/ flat oblong ocarina used by Link. The Recorder is the first musical instrument to be referenced in the game.

In the game, The Zelda ocarina was used by link to play songs that will help him, be transported, teleported, to clear his path and something in that nature. It is not used to attack or stop his enemies  but just to help him to continue his journey. In the game, There are several Legend of Zelda Ocarinas used by Link in the game. Most of this instruments have several capabilities that are unique to each other. Among this several kinds of Ocarinas, the blue colored ocarina is the most seen ocarina in the series.

12 Hole Legend of Zelda ocarina from STL Ocarina


The STL Zelda Ocarina was made to be as close as possible to the Legend Of Zelda Instrument without having the tone range limitation of other Zelda Ocarina instruments(because of more holes).  The ocarina is still the same sweet potato shaped seen used by Link in the video game but with more holes so it can have a better tone range(In-game Ocarinas sometimes have 3-holes or 6-holes).

There are 2 versions, One plastic ocarina and one ceramic. If you look at both versions, they have the same size, sime color as well as same appearance but there are still key differences between the two versions. The Plastic Zelda Ocarina they say produces weaker sounds, but the upside is that it is more durable and kids can use it without the risk of breaking it. The Ceramic Zelda Ocarina is prone to breakage and cracks which is why you should never let your kids or clumsy people use it but if you want a "Real" Ocarina with good Ocarina sounds, then you should choose the ceramic.
