1.8 Pro Level TENSEI Line SEIKADO Shakuhachi FLute

This is a recently restored SEIKADO professional shakuhachi instrument.


This is a high quality pro-level made by the Kitahara Family, three generations of shakuhachi craftsmen in Kyoto. I collected it in 2014 while I was on an Asian cultural council shakuhachi grant in Japan. This flute was originally made around the late 1960’s or early 70’s. It plays like flutes in the $4,000 range I played in his shop. It had a small crack and loose joint. Everything had been repaired and it is guaranteed to last a lifetime under normal shakuhachi care.
