I’m happy to give you a live demo of any shakuhachi via skype or google hangouts.
This is was my personal 2.1 “B” shakuhachi. Very resonant with a complex sound and look. I handcrafted this shakuhachi from rare “goma” madake bamboo I harvested my self. Goma madake is madake bamboo that dies and “cures” out in the bamboo grove. This natural process leaves the bamboo with wonderful markings and coloration known as “spalting”. This is a jinashi shakuhachi made for the playing of traditional honkyoku shakuhachi music. For urushi lacquer please inquire.
