2.4 EARTH Model All-Natural nonroot Shakuhachi

This is an all natural bore bass length 73cm shakuhachi pitched in A = 440haz. These are made with the oldest shakuhachi design I’ve had the opportunity to study. EARTH Models are crafted from the bamboo stalk just above the root ball so it still has the bore shape that offers a classic natural bore shakuhachi tone heard in the old Koten Honkyoku music of the Komuso monks. There is a tiny superficial crack at the second finger hole. It has been bound and guaranteed to last a lifetime under normal instrument care. As a result, I’ve lowered the cost form $275. Thsi is a freiendly flute that favours the wide vibratory tone of easy, meditative playing.
