Thanks for the help, after I carved out the lining more and applied oil it now works! Well, sort of. It's pretty quiet and only makes a solid note if I blow gently. It's almost barely audible. I've tried enlarging the airways a bit and trying to smooth it out more, without much result -- maybe it's a little better. Could this be because of the body? Maybe the lining's making it uneven, or it should be thinner to resonate better? Or is it just supposed to be kinda quiet? When I blow harder it makes a screechy whistling wind sound.
Did you use a printed template to make the neck? If so, could you upload it? Also, is this a 3/4 or 4/4 bass?

Hello, sorry about the mixup but by the beginning I mean at the very end of the airway where the fipple hole begins. The problem with carving too much is that the end of the airway becomes uneven which could mean that the air might not hit the ramp correctly or other things like that. I'm not 100% sure on this but I just took it as a rule of thumb at the time and I believe that if the lining isn't carved enough it could dull out the sound big time. You should also be able to clearly see where you have carved it out as it starts from the beginning of the hole onward. Also is your ocarina completely assembled or is it taped together? When I first tried it out by taping it together, it wouldn't make a sound but it was mostly because air was escaping as the tape wasn't air-tight. I hope I made sense lol
Hi, I'm having some trouble with making my ocarina. When you say not to carve the middle lining past where the fipple hole begins, is the beginning the side where the slant is or the opposite side? Should you be able to see where the carved out section is by looking through the fipple? Mine's a bit visible, and I can't get it to make any sound.
Yeah shaking it or blowing into it normally does the trick just be careful not to get it in your eyes :)
You're welcome, glad I could help :)
Sorry about the confusion but the light gray part is where the cut's supposed to be. I don't think I thought of it all the way through but I fixed the photo for you so you can understand better. I hope it helps :)
lol it's okay xD what part did you have with it? I changed the picture seeing as the one I had was a bit confusing.
thanks for getting back. :)
Hi, I don't really quite understand how I would make the airway. I understand how to make the mouthpiece, but I'm not sure how to follow on the 8th step.
Just realized I replied with a different account. Derp.
