Bamboo Whistle ~ Shakuhachi Flute style

$16.00



A unique whistle and great way to hone your shakuhachi flute playing skills! Good introduction to the shakuhachi flute for children. Be sure to scroll through all the pictures to see some of the variations in color.

Shaped like a shakuhachi mouthpiece but measuring just 3 inches tall, widths vary.
Made with recycled bamboo cutoffs from shakuhachi flute making.

Play by placing under your lower lip and blowing directly onto the the edge of the notch. Sound is modulated by using two fingers or your palm to open or close the end by varying amounts and changing the blowing angle.

My makers mark, or hanko (in the Japanese tradition), is located on the back as with my shakuhachi flutes.

Choose from lighter or darker color bamboo or let me choose for you by picking the option 'any color bamboo'.

*Please note that the pictures above are of a few whistles from my stock and may not be the actual whistle you receive. I make each whistle to the same specifications but the coloring and width/shape of every piece of bamboo is unique.

Very quick shipping. Well made. Glad I bought this version instead of a flute. My embouchure needs a lot of work. With any luck, I will be back.


Great purchase and fast shipping. Will do business again!


Great whistle,shakuhachi mouthpiece!


Lovely design. Works great for practice. Compact and easy to transport without worry of damage. Can even play it (somewhat) by covering the opening with your hand!
