I really hope I am posting this to the right place. If not please forgive me....
I started learning the shakuhachi a couple of months ago. My teacher suggested buying a Yuu shakuhachi or a wooden one in order to begin with. Both of them are within the price range I can afford (180 - 200 Euro).
However I cannot find a seller in Europe. I really hesitate buying from outside the EU because of the extra costs because of customs etc.
Can anyone suggest me an online shop within the EU?
I do also recommend the Plastic flutes from Mujitsu shakuhachi by Ken La Cosse. Mine shipped directly to the door with no extra costs. I do play it very often outside and people often wonder that a piece of plastic can sound really nice. And, no worries about cracks! http://mujitsu.com/other.html _________________ "To play a wrong note is insignificant, to play without passion is inexcusable." Ludwig van Beethoven
