Description

The Shakuhachi is an amazing instrument, one of my favorites. It is in the pentatonic scale. There are four holes on the front and one on the back. The bamboo I use for this instrument is denser. I have coated the inside with a two-part polymer to give it a deep, resonant sound. This instrument has quite a history in Japan. I have an instructional sheet with the instrument showing how to blow the shakuhachi. The fingering is left hand on the top hole, using the index finger, rest middle finger, use the ring finger on the next hole. The right-hand index finger comes next, and finally, the ring finger on the bottom. There is a back hole for the left thumb.

This root section is beautiful and very sturdy. Pictured are the roots that were in the ground. It is in the key of 1.8, a traditional length for a shakuhachi. It comes with a sheet describing how to blow the instrument. The blowing end of the shakuhachi is called utaguchi. The position is for an inblown flute. This is different than a regular flute.
