Pocket Pipes: The Multiple
We’ve developed this instrument especially for Celtic
and traditional music, and free-form harmonic exploration.
These ocarinas play two or three notes at once, producing
a bagpipe-like sound--only sweet, soft, and mellow. One of
the chambers serves as a chanter to play the melody, while
the other one or two chambers act as a drone to produce harmonies
and chords. We have developed many tunings in both major and
minor modes. Several models are described below, but keep
in mind that each instrument is unique in appearance and sound.-Please
call to discuss availability and hear the instrument.
|The chanter has five holes; the drone usually has a double
thumbhole producing three drone notes, accommodating both major
& minor modes--$75-$350
Four-Note Drone Models:
|The four-note drone uses a third finger as well as the thumb.
Our most evolved piece, this model offers more harmonic possibilities--$125-$350
Full Moon Faces:
|I only make her on the full moon. Single and double models
