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.
(There are no jinashi shakuhachi for sale at this time because I’m in the processes of harvesting and drying bamboo. For the Bell shakuhachi please click the picture above)

- Shaku Japanese measurement explained
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 “brassy” while jinashi typically sound like “bamboo”. Crafting jinashi to a high level is far more difficult than jiari because the maker must rely more heavily on the bamboo, which varies greatly from piece to piece, however, quality jinashi offer an entirely unequaled experience. Jinashi are also usually lighter especially in the longer bass lengths when compared to jiari which can often become increasingly heavy due to the plaster or glue.
