The shakuhachi has a good response and balance throughout the octaves and a pleasant dark-ish sound. Easy accessible kan register and playable dai-kan range too. The bamboo is shaped slightly oval and offers cofortable placing of fingers and hands. The holes are also off-set (right hand bottom player) for more relaxed arm and hand position.

The joint is made in the rattan bindings style. There are some preventive bindings on this flute too as they are some small hairline cracks present on the bamboo which are stable for years already. This of course does not impede on its playability. Nevertheless I reduced the price.

The shakuhachi can be used for various styles and genres, probably particular suitable for honkyoku music.

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