Ji-mori Shakuhachi 2.0 in C – Japanese Madake – grade **

Made from a light and vibrating piece of bamboo, this shakuhachi has a very nice curved shape.
It was originally made to be a ji-nashi but some ji was needed in one crucial point of the bore to get a good balance which makes it a Ji-mori.
The tone is soft and flexible with the qualities of a good Ji-nashi.
It is a higher ** grade (or lower***) very well suited for Honkyoku but maybe not responsive enough for Gaikyoku.
