Great flute for a student’s formative years or as a back up flute for professional level. I bought this flute while I was between 1.8s. It would be a great flute for travel and/or for smaller hands due to its light weight and slim profile. It has a more subdued voice, though I wouldn’t call it a quiet flute, with a strong core sound- great for a jiari sound in smaller space or those with more sensitive ears. All techniques are functional and sound great.
This flute’s weight is 285 grams.

This wonderful shakuhachi is great performer with rich texture and full volume.  I believe this to be second generation Gyokusui. Recently repaired by Ken Lacosse, purchased from Jeff Cairn in 2009. A great classical shakuhachi with a wide range of moods available to the performer.

This flute’s weight is 325 grams

Excellent Kinko flute with “old world” sound crafted near 100 years ago. I purchased from Dai Shihan Peter Hill about 7 years ago.  This is a wonderful Kinko flute that would be great in a Kinko-ryu player’s hands, but also suitable for other styles.

The flute will conduct all traditional and modern advanced techniques as well and has good volume – wonderful for a flute of this age! (I had previously stated in this listing that one technique was a challenge, but with a simple embouchure adjustment the technique is fluid and is voiced easily).
