For perspective, the shakuhachi is generally regarded as the flute-type instrument in which the highest degree of tonal flexibility is achievable, based on the utaguchi blowing-edge design. This can all be explained acoustically, but I'm not going to bother. I am lucky in that my Okuralo has both an utaguchi head and a normal Boehm head. The difference is really like night and day.

One day I hope to be able to go visit you and try your Okuraulo! Must be amazing! I didn't know (or remember) it has both a Boehm head.... then you can for real hear what that design difference is. Do you mind describing... although I can guess the difference. Fact is just that I have never tried the two different heads on the same flute. And that would make a huge difference I think in the exerience of how much the utaguchi means to the sound of the shakuhaachi.
