Jinashi shakuhachi series review - About high registers, tuning, meditation and music.

Updated: Feb 23





How simple is to play the three octaves and high registers on a jinashi shakuhachi?. People ask. Sensei reply.


I answer this question, because many internet users and buyers of my flutes, some students too, find themselves with the paradigm that having a jinashi flute is only for meditation and not for making music. The misconception is sold in the flute market that a meditation flute should not be in tune, as it is only for blowing. And this my friends is totally wrong, and you must not eat this argument without chewing it. Pay attention to this and do not be fooled by this story that to meditate you have to sound bad.

This argument responds more to trying to sell a defective flute, of poor quality and poorly made. Never buy a shakuhachi flute without hearing it or evaluating it by an expert. They may be selling you a trinket without any musical function with this silly excuse of meditation for the deaf.


In itself, the instrument is complex and very sensitive to achieve stability in a notation, we cannot add to it that the flute is out of tune and poorly manufactured.


While in ancient times there was no technology such as a tuner to calibrate the perfect tuning of a flute, today we have the resources for it, and an international standard to obtain a wind instrument tuned for the musical function. The art of shakuhachi is not bottle blowing.

¿Qué tan simple es tocar las tres octavas y los registros altos en un jinashi shakuhachi? La gente pregunta. Sensei responde.

Respondo a esto, ya que muchos internautas y compradores de mis flautas, algunos estudiantes también, se encuentran con el paradigma de que tener una flauta jinashi es solo para meditar y no para hacer música. En el mercado de las flautas se vende la idea errónea de que una flauta de meditación no debe estar afinada, ya que es solo para soplar. Y esto, amigos míos, está totalmente equivocado, y no deben comerse este argumento sin masticarlo. Presta atención a esto y no te dejes engañar por esta historia de que para meditar tienes que sonar mal.

Este argumento responde más a tratar de vender una flauta defectuosa, de mala calidad y pésimamente elaborada. Jamás compre una flauta shakuhachi sin escucharla o valorarla por un experto puede que le estén vendiendo una baratija sin función musical alguna con esta tonta excusa de la meditación para sordos.


De por si que el instrumento es complejo y muy sensible para alcanzar estabilidad en una notación, no podemos sumarle entonces a que la flauta esté desafinada y mal fabricada.


Si bien en la antigüedad no había la tecnología como un afinador para calibrar la afinación perfecta de una flauta, hoy día tenemos los recursos para ello, y un estándar internacional para obtener un instrumento de viento afinado para la función musical. El arte del shakuhachi no es soplar botella.
