|this flute has gone through long restoration process at my workshop during the last 2 years, and is now ready to be played.
it is a very easy and strong sounding flute, that would be an excellent instrument to study shakuhachi with.
it is endorsed and demonstrated in the video below by Joseph Pepe Danza.
price is 595usd or best offer.
1.8 length pitched in D with a=440hz.
MUMEI (no maker signature).
authentic vintage kinko ryu Japanese shakuhachi.
new water buffalo horn kinko utaguchi inlay.
joint and top half are binded with thicker old style inlay rattan bindings.
the flute is at least 50 years old (judging by the color of the bamboo).
