When I saw this flute on your website today, I saw the exact flute we had discussed and knew I should act.
I’m really looking forward to getting another flute from you and trying this long one with a low tone.
The 2.0’ flute I bought from you at your shop a couple years ago continues to provide me with great joy and sympathetic vibrations. It has also proven to be very stable (no shrinking or cracking) and quite possibly the most beautiful thing I own.
“...You gave a SOUL to THIS piece of bamboo !... Absolutly incredible. Magical. Perfection. Really something special and quite unexpected after playing so many wind instruments in my life."
“I just wanted to say how thankful I am for the fine instrument you created, and I had the good fortune of purchasing. I spent some time with the shak and the birds last evening in my backyard, and it was really special. The flute has a great tone and is exceptionally easy to play. Every note pops with little effort and the meri and keri is very wide and easy to produce. I really love the large holes. Thanks again, and I'll make sure to tell the folks in my dojo about your work!"
"I received the beautiful flute Saturday. I was able to get a tone from it on Sunday. I am very pleased with the flute."
"Your Shakuhachi arrived today. I was able to spend some time this afternoon and am so happy. I find the tone to be deep and the flute's ability to go between Ryo and Kan is remarkable, the flute glides between the two very easily.”
"The care you put into the instrument is very evident. I cannot exhaust the deep feeling of playing a long earthy RO!"
"I received the flute. To say I am impressed is an understatement. Beautiful tone, wonderful feel. What a joy! The degree of craftsmanship is a pleasure in itself. Thank you."
"My flute arrived this morning - and it's beautiful. Thank you for all the hard work that went into making it, from the flute itself right down to the careful packaging to make sure it got here safe and sound. I'll do my best to do it justice as I learn."
"Wow. The new flute got here last night. I gave it a night to get used to its new home and began playing it today. This is one great little flute!"
"I thank you very very much for your wonderful job : optical and musical top !! I love it (once again) !"
"I received the shakuhachi this morning!
That was fast, and shipped very safely and securely.
The flute is beautiful------a work of art!
It plays effortlessly and the upper registers are right there.
Beautifully crafted, oiled and bound.
I would absolutely recommend these flutes to anyone looking for a superb instrument."
Thank you again!
