Our beautiful bamboo Shakuhachi flutes are handmade by expert craftsman who work exclusively for us in Tokyo.
Our craftsmen use domestic madake bamboo to create these traditional Japanese Zen flutes!
Japanese flutes take three to six months to make, sometimes even a year or more.
The flute’s interior is a complicated process that must be done right to realize perfect pitch, balance and power.
Don’t settle for imitators who do not know the very fine art of Japanese bamboo flute creation.
Because our craftsmen work exclusively for us, and we purchase madake bamboo in large quantities, we are able to offer them at a lower price than our competitors.
This Mejiro ‘Zen Model’ bamboo flute is in the key of ‘D’.
The measurements of our Zen bamboo flute include:
• Joint 35.1
• Weight 375 grams
• Plastic joint. If you prefer, you can upgrade to an Utaguchi Tozan or Kinko insert if desired (for 10,800 JPY).
Be sure to listen to the demo below to hear a sample of this magnificent bamboo flute!
