Many thanks Hoodsmon,
love this tune, it featured in a film called Local Hero (1980 I think) which has an amazing soundtrack including this given a few brilliant different arrangements.  Off now to give it a practice.

I loved that film. I don't remember the tune from it, but now I'll want to watch it again just for that.

What a lovely family, you look so happy!

The Coda Silencer is a great idea. I'm sure that if you develope a piece of plastic that works as a silencer for the Coda and you offer it as an add on for some extra fee when you buy a Coda, most people would choose to buy it.

A professional player named Milt developed a silencer "Mr. Mute" that works for most single chamber ocarinas, and it had a very good reception in the ocarina community. Ocarina players definitely have the problem of not being able to practice as much as they want because of the loud and high pitched sound. Here's an example of Mr. Mute:



By the way your playing is awesome as always! You should make more videos playing songs (of course AFTER your vacations :P), the audio samples are a great way to show people what the instrument is capable of, I remember that your video playing Greensleeves made me buy my first MO.

Just curious too if it would be possible to post videos/pics on the actual new Coda facebook account?
I received detailed instructions from Roderick to post pics, etc to the forum a while back and I still cannot add a thing....but that's me..... :o

Hi Ahrens family!   You guys .....that's a well deserved vacation and Ill gladly keep on shoveling snow so that there's no more cases of food poisoning and you all get to keep  that smile in all your faces and have fun!
That bathroom video is too funny and the acoustics are like the Motown studio quality of old...true story there....they did!  Now Mr Karlo.....you have got to reveal to us the secrets of that wonderful vibrato of yours!  As for the silencer.....I just enrolled my hubby in the grumpyflute.org/forum you spoke of before  ;D jeje!  My regards to Baloo Señor Karlo and to la Señora Susana and su hijo David!  Enjoy and have a safe trip back home!!

So... a)Of course you're working during your vacation.  And ... b) I was hoping someone would come up with a volume dampening system for the Coda. Like the Mountain Ocarina, the Coda is very LOUD! That's good for big halls and big bands, but for solo practice in a small room or a car, not so much. I hope you can come up with a one-piece, cost-effective-yet-profitable Coda muffler some day. Thanks for the demo. I trust you are enjoying your much-deserved vacation.

Since the forum is so new and I've left some wonderful posts unanswered, I thought I should mention that I am on vacatiion with my family from January 11th through the 18th.  When we planned this trip a year ago, I had no idea that we'd have just launched Coda in December. I mean, it was obvious that we'd launch by June 2018 at the very latest. Ah, the surprises of life!

You'll never guess where we are. Hint 1: it is warm, tropical, and overrun with large rodents. Hint 2: the rodents wear white gloves and are uncharacteristically friendly.



The young man in the middle of the above family selfies is my son David. He's 25, but --because of his autism-- our buddy David relates to life more like a big, loving toddler. It's wonderful to see his smiles and joy in this place where the songs and characters are like old friends, straight out of some of his favorite children's videos.

But I shouldn't go on any more about Florida and the hardships of applying sunscreen when some of you, like CODAina, are busy shoveling snow. We'll be joining you soon enough.

By the way, in our absence, some dear friends are staying in our house and are shipping orders.

Finally, I made a little video today related to a makeshift Coda Silencer.  If anyone's interested in that, maybe we'll start a separate thread. All the best from sunny Florida!
