"Little Lady" gets competition

21.01.2017
After some experience with the traditional Italian 10-hole Okarina, I wanted to try a 4-hole as simple as possible, and I came across the Mini Karinchen.
Although the dimensions are there, I was a little surprised after unpacking how small the part really is. It immediately reminded me of the mini-harmonica "Little Lady" by Hohner, which is the smallest playable musical instrument I've ever had. The Mini Rabbit is pretty much so small and also a perfectly playable musical instrument.
The mini rabbit is delivered in a beautiful box of Ocarina_Music in which just as well a full-grown (old) Ocarina could be stuck in it.
In this box is still a music booklet with 48 pages, on the back of a figure for the right hand position and a fingering chart are printed. The booklet contains 46 different songs with notes and tablature, for almost every imaginable occasion. The Mini Karinchen has a range from C to A (ie not a full octave), but with all semitone steps.
All songs in the music booklet are playable with it. - Incredible how much you can do with so little range.
The instrument itself: The mini rabbit has a very clean finish and looks really pretty on the leather strap as a jewelry pendant. It is small, round and has a smooth deep black surface. Here's the problem, if you want to play on it.
You have to manage to hold on to the small part with your mouth, two thumbs from the bottom and four (sausage) fingers on top, with which you also have to operate the tone holes. This requires a lot of practice, frustration tolerance and discipline! Once you have found the right approach, then the rabbit also has a really nice sound and is also surprisingly loud for the size.
The Mini Rabbit is therefore rather a nice accessory or piece of jewelry, with which you can make music properly with appropriate exercise. So, if someone manages to memorize all the songs from the music booklet, then he's guaranteed to win at the next party!
Conclusion: Pretty gift idea for music lovers, and something for people who can inspire working miniature musical instruments in the style of "Little Lady". Not necessarily as a "main instrument" suitable

More jewel than instrument

13.01.2017
Nice little ocarina that can be worn around the neck, but the sound is not terrible ...
And if you have big fingers, it will be difficult to make melodies.
