Shakuhachi Shop Backed Up.

Hi Folks, I am presently at the International Shakuhachi Festival in London. I am not taking new orders for custom flutes and shipping on my accessories is on hold until further notice. If you need work on a flute, I will do my best to help as I understand how important it is for a musician to have a working instrument. Just send an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I’ll be back in the shop on Aug 27, 2018. Until then, keep your flutes stored properly with some amount of humidity to prevent cracks.  Cheers, Perry

Perry Yung:  Shakuhachi maker, musician

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. Welcome! I first discovered the shakuhachi flute while performing in New York City as an actor in Ellen Stewart’s Oedipus the King. Night after night, the subtle sound grew to become all encompassing. Soon, I started making the flute as it was impossible to buy a shakuhachi in the pre-internet days of 1994. Time passed and eight years later got a grant to live in Japan to study traditionally with some of the best makers and players in the world. The shakuhachi changed my life in ways that words can not describe. My goal is to help you with a flute that can open that door as it is a beautiful world on the other side. Come on in!
Those interested in my acting work (TV, film and stage) can see what I’m up to at my actors blog.  -
