This Shakuhachi GEM series offers a beautiful 侘寂 WABI-SABI gradient color skin. The term Wabi can be understood as simple, elegant and beautiful. On the other hand the term Sabi, meaning deterioration by the passage of time, this model expresses the idea of a worldview based on the beauty of the transience and imperfection of a rustic appearance, through the artistic expression between the coloring technique and the natural staining of bamboo: The simple beauty of the time passing.


Our new generation of practice jinashi shakuhachi offer the internal coating technology of a thin inner layer of non-toxic varnish that protects the instrument and allows for better internal cleaning, preventing pathogens that saliva or other external agents can cause from lodging inside the tube, while preserving its rustic texture that keeps its authentic natural sound, a unique traditional earthy, dirty and bass oriented tone with medium and subdued treble. All-natural body varnished with the unique shades and color of Colombian bamboo. This flute series really offers the naturalness of bamboo  sound in one blowing. Perfect resonance because of the thick bamboo walls.

 

Select the mouthpiece type

You can customize your flute mouthpiece between a natural blowing edge or our exclusive cutting-edge precision mouthpiece design Ref. Koumori Utaguchi (Singing bat mouth).
