Wow, it looks like I'm an early adopter. How unusual for me. I just bought my first ocarina for Christmas, a Night by Noble. Since I can play most woodwinds and am a folk flute enthusiast, I was able to get playing right away. While researching ocarinas online, I bumped into the Mountain Ocarina website and that led me to the Coda. I was fascinated by it's portability and range so I ordered one. It's been in my pocket everywhere for days and I really am enjoying it. I had to look up how to post on a forum just to do this, so I'm a newbie newbie.
