Jinashi shakuhachi for sale
There are no bamboo jinashi shakuhachi available at this time.
I craft and play the older jinashi style of shakuhachi which are mostly natural bamboo on the inside. Conversely, contemporary jiari style shakuhachi are mostly plaster or glue on the inside. As one might imagine, crafting jinashi to a high level can often be much more difficult than jiari because the maker has to rely much more on what nature gives them. Acquiring suitable madaké bamboo for jinashi is immensely important and difficult. When crafted expertly, jinashi offer an entirely unequaled experience.
