    I admit it. I play the Ocarina. Pretty fluently too, I might add. :) I own the extended range Ocarina of Time from Songbird Ocarinas.
    Does anyone else play?

    I never even knew the ocarina was a real instrument. :eek:

    Is it played like a flute? or more like a recorder (flutophone??)

    It's basically a recorder in a different shape.

    It sounds basically like it does in the game, but overall, it's just an expensive recorder in a different shape. :)

    Recorders are cheap. People will give them to you for free, so long as you promise not to play it. ;)

    About how expensive is an ocarina? If you play the flute would it be hard to learn the ocarina.

    The Extended Range one that I have was $50, but the normal one is $40.

    I've never played the flute, so I wouldn't know.
