2.5 nobekan jinashi

34.9mm O.D. / 20.mm I.D.

Length: 805 mm

Weight: 400 gms

Key: G

Price: 35,000 yen

Maker: mumei

Details: A very warm chokan in looks, feel and voice. Crafted from

susudake (coal smoke cured) madake, the gentle upward

curve of this root end was obviously chosen for ease of

playing and feel. With excellent tuning and intonation throughout, this

is a very playable long shakuhachi. Red lacquer wash in the bore

and a gold-edged, bamboo inlay utaguchi (unusual); a very

nice instrument.
