This 2.0 in ‘C’ has a great response and balance throughout the octaves. It has a soft yet focused sound and can be equally played with a lot or with a little breath for great dynamic range too.  Tonal colours from a strong ‘ro’ up to the higher octaves. The kan register is easy to access and the playable dai-kan range was tested up to ro in the 4. octave.

Visually the shakuhachi has a spotted bamboo pattern, ‘honkyoku’ style pure rattan bindings and a slight oval shape for comfortable holding.

The shakuhachi can be used for various styles and genres,  particular suitable for honkyoku music as , but equally at home in modern or contemporary music.

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