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.
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.
