Jul 29 2008PWNSOME!: Zelda Ocarinas For Sale

ocarina-1.jpg

I know Zelda ocarinas have been available for awhile now, because I bought one at a street fair two years ago, but these ones from ThinkGeek actually look sharp and worth the $40.

Product Features

* Real playable Ocarina lets you re-create your favorite Zelda tunes
* Made from glazed earthenware
* 6 Holes, Plays notes from C4-D5
* Includes song book with instructions on playing several Zelda tunes
* Tri-Force Logo adorns the stem
* Made in the USA

I paid $40 for the one I bought and I'm pretty sure it was made out of Sculptey and had the holes punched through it with different sized pens. And it didn't help the dude was selling it right alongside Zelda themed bongs. Despite my better judgment, I also bought a Goron Bomb Bag Bong. *BOOM!* I'm crunk.

Hit the jump for a closeup and a couple videos of people playing the Song of Time (one kid is even dressed like Link) on an ocarina. If you like it just do a search on Youtube, you can pretty much find every Zelda song covered.

Thanks to Vivienne, the Zelda to my Link, for knowing how much I love all things Hyrulian.

FIRST!
But yeah, those ocarina-like things have been around for a while. I saw a couple in China.

damn it second they look pretty cool though

Hate to break it to you but https://www.songbirdocarina.com/ has been producing ocarinas of time for at least 8 years now ;) (basing it from when I got mine)

The blue OOT can be found under sweet potato ocarinas.

Oh, they also have songbooks with instructions for all the Zelda song's in them.. nerd away :P

I'm anxious to see the first Hyrule band put together....

From the look on the face of the second guy I expected something like a super cool, extra heavy guitar riff... but... erm... just LOL.
I just decided that playing ocarinas is not cool. At all.

the guy playing the ocranito dressed like link depressed the hell out of me. geez dude. i dont even know why im still crying. and please do not correct my spelling of ogranzano.

i have put this on my christmas list. right under boob job. but before anal bleaching..

@8 - As a Deficationist, shouldn't anal bleaching be on the top of your list?

old old old old.

I saw this in a magazine ad ten years ago when OoT first was released.

(damn, was it that long ago? I feel old.)

Ok, sense I'm gonna assume im the only real ocarina player here, its a hole clay ocarina from sonbirdocarina.com . It's actually only one of MANY different ocarinas by the seller, and there are also a 5 hole, a 6 hole larger size, a bass 12 hole and many pendan ocarinas, which i personally dont like. Songbird advertises in Nintendo Power, and you've probably seen this before. My advice, if you want a good looking, easy ocarina, go with this one. If you want an ocarina that sounds awesome, but sacrifices beauty go with maparam.kr and if you want somethin in the middle, check out some of the sweet (zelda)ocarinas you can find at www.stlocarinas.com . They have some really nice zelda models.

This ocarina is good for zelda fans, but not so good for actual players like myself. For more information on the ocarina, check out the forums at:

sorry for teh double post

I have one, and though I just like playing random Zelda tunes on it for fun, and not play it "professionally", take not that these are extremely well-made ocarinas. Though I got mine from Songbird Ocarina (the guy in the first vid's store). Verstand will be right about it not being fit for actual players, but for novelty value it's very nice, and it still sounds very nice.

If you're a big Zelda fan then it's not a waste of money, if you're looking for a "proper" ocarina for long-term practice etc, then Verstand ^ knows the deal. :)

Cool, I never knew Link was secretly Ellen Paige until now.

Yeah guys... but this one is made in the USA!

yea...
i got my working replica at songbird about 9 years ago man

looks exactly like this one

i can't wait to see little geeky peoplkes playing this!

First and foremost, I f-cking hate the word pwnsome. (Personal reasons...someone I know actually says it on a regular basis.)

Anyway! It does look sharp, I'll have to order one...:D

oh made in america ill skip thanks

wow i didnt think it would take you this long to find theese, i've actually had one for a couple years now

If I could buy one thing that was in the Legend of Zelda, it would probably be the Mask of Truth. I would spend all my free time talking to animals.

i want one soooooo bad but my mom wont let me nice youtube scenes though :)

I see this is where most of the hits are coming from. I do have a newer video, it's a lot better than the one on here, couple more years current lol. I am a little disposed by the comments on this board though... they all seem to think I'm a boy.

which one would be better, this one of the sweet potato one on songbird?

im curious about the bings you mentioned.... and yes the ocarinas have been around for ages. figured id be the 111th person to tell you all over again. email me?

I have a question cuz I want to buy the one ur talkibng about what site did u get it from. like the one with the song book and everything and that blue ocarina?

Wow, that looks pretty cool! But I'm not gonna pay $40 just for a ocarina that I can buy elsewhere for cheaper. It may not be the exact one, but it's still worth it...
