The shakuhachi is a ‘jointless’ shakuhachi. The one-piece shakuhachi is a very accessible and fluent player and with its dark-ish hint in otsu and a light and subtle kan register make this a great flute to start out with. Also capable of the dai-kan range. The flute is light at 330g and its dark, muddled bamboo patterns visually supplement its tonal quality. This shakuhachi can be used for various styles and genres (e.g. honkyoku, sankyoku, min’yō) and feels also like a flute to improvise with.

The shakuhachi comes with a protective utaguchi cap and a carrying bag. (see pictures)
