Start your practice with the best option, sound and price.
Shakuhachi practical series. Selected lightweight thick bamboo without root-end.
Our HITOYOGIRI 一 節 切 series of flutes is a range of practice flutes and is considered one of the best options to get started in the art of shakuhachi at a low cost, while still having an excellent beginner instrument in your hands. The term Hitoyogiri literally translates as "one-section cut", refers to a thinner piece of bamboo distant from the root end, and is the name with which we refer to our series of flutes made from a light, unrooted bamboo. In the history of shakuhachi, the hitoyogiri were the predecessor flute model and link between the root-end shakuhachi used today.
Our new generation of shakuhachi jinashi offer the internal coating technology of a thin inner layer of non-toxic colombian 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. This flute has a natural blowing edge. All-natural body varnished with the unique shades and color of Colombian bamboo.
In this flute series you can play the traditional sound of a classical Buddhist piece (honkyoku) or popular music (gaikyoku).
