2.8 Bass Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute

2.8 Bass Shakuhachi Bamboo Flute

This is a non root end 2.8 EARTH Model bass shakuhachi pitched in F#. It is a fat piece of Chinese Madake bamboo that was harvested specially for me in Zhejiang China in 2001. Because of it’s length, it is made for the taller player with medium to large hands. This instrument is a great example of a fully functional, wide bore Jinashi style bass shakuhachi.

Lessons Information

The experience of the shakuhachi is available to anyone, from the individual seeking peace in a tranquil tone to the experienced musician who wants to study traditional shakuhachi music. The shakuhachi began as a zen tool in the hands of Komuso Monks. Over a few centuries, the simple bamboo flute became a finely crafted instrument. The shakuhachi can be enjoyed through many approaches and I am happy to share any part of my journey.

It is my obligation to share the shakuhachi in the highest light. Performing and making are my first priorities but these days I find it necessary to make time to teach.
