One of the deepest bass flute in our collection. Its key frequency (G3 / 195.9 Hz) is one of the lowest requency in our collection of bass flutes. This is the key frequency, it is produced from "Otsu no Ro" notation. It brings a warm vibration in our body, a sense of relief and peace of mind. 
Although it is a long-bass flute, it is still very comfortable to play because of its ergonomic hole placement.

As it is a long-bass flute, it requires better mastery of fingering and breathing, which leads the practitioner to develop a better management of the hara-lower breathing. This bass belongs to our high-end professional line of Jinashi 地無し type flutes with root end. The naturalness of bamboo sound in one breath. Excellent resonance due to the thick bamboo walls. FROM THE BAMBOO FORESTS TO THE STAGE!
