Perry Yung Shakuhachi Image
Hi Folks, I just put up some new flutes in the Shop section. http://yungflutes.com/shop/category/shakuhachi_for_sale
Those of you looking for a nice shakuhachi, this is what I have ready to ship now. I have others in the works but for the next three weeks, I would like to finish some repairs and commissions. I will not be shipping after Dec 19th as I can not guaranteed a delivery before Christmas eve. Feel free to send me an email with any questions what so ever. Unless I’m in the middle of a performance or drilling a hole, I will respond ASAP. Thanks again and from my family to yours, have a great Holiday Season! - Perry
