Chikudo Ji-nashi Shakuhachi 2.1 in B – Japanese Madake ‘Gomadake’ – grade ***
I made this ji-nashi shakuhachi from a piece of dried Madake (gomadake) harvested last autumn in Kyushu. The bamboo is gorgeous with beautiful natural patterns. The foot part presented after aburanuki curing two cracks so I decided to bind completely the flute to prevent any other crack to appear.
This ji-nashi is great ! Very easy and pleasant blowing, flexible and resonant, it’s velvety tone colour is delightful !
This shakuhachi can be great for both beginners or advanced players.
