Gekko Roteki played on 1.8 PVC shakuhachi (2.0 7-hole sample coming soon)
2.0 PVC 7-hole shakugrey
2.0 (‘C’) 7-hole PVC shakugrey
Available as left or right hand bottom off-set. Please specify when ordering.
Great for traveling and when you don’t want to take your precious bamboo shakuhachi into challenging climates or situations. The sturdy plastic is tolerant against cold, rain and sun. Utaguchi/mouthpiece top features comfortable chin rest as it is fairly close to the traditional shakuhachi measurements. This is a 7-hole version of the traditional standard 5-hole shakuhachi, sometimes used more in modern or jazz contexts as the extra holes make the meri notes easier accessible. Generally speaking the 7-hole shakuhachi are not used to play traditional honkyoku music.
