Chikudo Hochiku Ji-nashi Shakuhachi 3.0 in F – grade *** – Japanese Madake
Made in a thick and dense piece of Madake harvested in Kyushu in 2019, this natural bore ji-nashi has a beautiful Chikuin (bamboo resonance) and is precise in tone and timbre and not so difficult to play for its size. Easily playing up to Dai kan.
Otsu no Ro is stable, rich and vibrating, really delightful !
This shakuhachi will suit players with at least some experience on Chōkan ji-nashi (long flute).
