This 2.0 C meditation model shakuhachi flute has a black acrylic and sterling silver inlay and black bindings. Measures 23-7/8 inches long. Made from a type of Phyllostachys nigra bamboo with natural brown modeling that some call tiger bamboo. This flute has a few minor character adding scratches and other marks but this piece was too beautiful to not make a flute with! Good sound.
The pictures are of the actual flute that is for sale in this listing. Be sure to scroll through all the expandable picts to view different aspects of this flute.
Meditation Shakuhachi are designed as a good quality, beautiful flute for meditative playing as well as for hobby and beginning players of the instrument. Carefully tuned to the traditional Japanese minor pentatonic scale, A440 Hz.
Both ends of this natural bore flute are polished to a fine sheen and the whole instrument is finished with pure Tung oil/ Citrus oil blend for increased bamboo stability.
Meditation Shakuhachi weigh only about 4 to 8 ounces, easy for most to hold for extended periods of time.
Please note: For shakuhachi flute sizes 2.1 and longer, first and third holes are offset for easier reach and are aligned for standard left-hand over right playing unless otherwise specified.
Please note: For studying traditional shakuhachi music, I highly recommend my student model flutes.
Made by Jem Klein in the Appalachian Mountains of NC!
