This 2.1 in ‘B’ (or ‘H’) has good response and balance throughout the octaves. It has a strong focused sound and can be equally played with a lot or with a little breath for great dynamic range too.  Great tonal colour from otsu to the higher octaves. The kan register is easy to access and the playable dai-kan range was tested up to tsu meri in the 4. octave.

Visually the shakuhachi has an attractive spotted bamboo pattern in the lower part and an attractive slightly curved root-end. Steel metal rings and rattan bindings adding to this shakuhachi stylish look.

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.

Due to a slight imperfection at the silver inlay on the utaguchi , which does not affect playability or anything else, the 2.1 is reduced from €1300 to € 1150. The shakuhachi comes with a protective utaguchi cap and a carrying bag. (see pictures)
