Jinashi shakuhachi for sale
Jinashi shakuhachi are the ineffable sound of bamboo. Too much adjustment and the magic is lost, not enough and it often lays obscured. Balance is the key. I only craft and play jinashi shakuhachi which are mostly or completely natural bamboo on the inside. Conversely, jiari shakuhachi are mostly plaster or glue on the inside which is used to literally sculpt the desired sound. As a result, jiari tend to sound more like silver flutes while jinashi sound like “bamboo”. Additionally, crafting jinashi to a high level is far more difficult than jiari because the maker must rely heavily on the bamboo, which varies greatly from piece to piece. However, quality crafted jinashi offer an entirely unequaled experience. Jinashi are also the only practical way to craft bass shakuhachi because jiari become too heavy due to the plaster or glue.
