Chikudo Ji-nashi Shakuhachi 1.8 in D – Grade *** – Kurochiku (Ph. Nigra)
I built this excellent Ji-nashi in a piece of light and resonant black bamboo from the Lot river with perfect proportions for a 1.8 (which is rare !)
Both flexible and powerful, this shakuhachi is very comfortable in hands and mouth and gives an easy playing with a bright fine tone colour and good response.
Ji-nashi shakuhachi of *** grade satisfying both beginners or advanced players.
