I've seen quite a number like this one with regard to the utaguchi re-work and the binding. I second Perry's judgement that it was an utaguchi re-work much later on after the actual bamboo at the blowing edge had deteriorated. I also second Brian's suggestion that it's myoan and not tozan.
I think that Perry will bring the best out in it.

Thanks, Jeff... maybe you get to see it live and direct... I'm planning on coming to Kyoto for the festival. It will be a pleasure to meet some of you in person and in sound.

So the flute is back. Awesome work as expected from Perry. Tsu meris are soft but sweet. The mouthpiece looks great. Got so excited that I opened the package and played it for over an hour. Next day I had a nice urushi reaction inside my lower lip! Fortunately it only lasted a couple of days and following Perry's advice about using baby wipes every time before playing, no problem any more... except for the fresh baby bum smell on the flute Very Happy
Here's a little improv inside a pool room... don't mind the cleaning lady sounds Wink

Well, it must be love! Considering you even could find a spare hour, the very week before your wedding to such a soulful and beautiful lady, is a testament to how inspired and infatuated you are with this most unique shakuhachi. This is clearly reflected in your enthusiastic musical expression.

Perry isn't just a proficient and pragmatic technician, as he obviously is, he is a healer. While the voice is brighter, cleaner and more distinct... the soft organic tonality has not been lost nor compromised. What a lovely, warm texture you weave with your soulful playing! The proof is in the pudding, since your improvisation is truly wonderful and most inspiring.

BTW, much love and congratulations on your wedding today. You two look so much in love! May you two continue to learn about the miracle of true love, for as long as you both shall live and breathe... even beyond the limits of measured time and the transitory frailty of human mortality. One love, two hearts, united forevermore in sublime harmony. Wink

Thank you Jon! We are in Seville honeymooning and I'm finding some amazing sonic spaces to play. Great and relaxed way to get acquainted with this wonderful instrument... Shakti does get jealous occasionally, and she tells me it's time to play my 5.7 (her new nickname Smile)
More recordings may be forthcoming

Pepe, enjoy it all while it's there (I'm speaking equally about the 5.7 and the 1.8, of course.) May the adventure never cease.

Sorry about the rash. I would've normally kept the flute for another week in the curing box but I know you wanted it back soon. I'm glad the baby wipes worked.
Thank you for allowing me to meet this maker and his work from over 200 years ago!

Hi Jon, funny you should mention healing. I try my best to approach these old flutes as individuals. This comes from my experience with my Chinese Eastern medicine doctor. When I go to him for herbs, he looks into my eyes, at my tongue, reads my pulse, then asks how my week has been. He then prescribes a tonic based on the combination of these unique conditions. As most of you know, Western medicine practitioners mostly treat the symptoms, without seeing the whole being.

I am just grateful that people send me their flutes as I continue to learn from each one.

A deep bow, Perry.
