1.8 Yuushou

36mm O.D. / 21mm I.D.

Length: 545 mm

Weight: 410 gms

Root note: D

Price: 25,000 yen

Maker: Yuushou

Details: This is a nicely made 1.8 crafted from Japanese madake in

the Kinko style. It possesses an older Kinko sound, woody low end

with a focused upper end.

The instrument suffered an extensive crack in the upper

half and was initially repaired with topical, rattan bindings.

These proved insufficient to rescue the instrument so

I had inlaid rattan bindings done and the instrument is

once again perfectly playable.
