Grading

5 Shakuhachi


 The quality of a shakuhachi is determined by two factors. Aesthetics of the bamboo as distinguished by its size, color, shape, nodal placement and root configuration. Performance of the instrument is reflected in its tonal quality, balance of notes, resonance and responsiveness. Tai Hei Shakuhachi are carefully evaluated, graded and priced with all of these factors in mind.

Tai Hei Shakuhachi are distinctive, high-quality instruments. Student-grade flutes are superior in all respects to wooden mass-produced instruments and are preferred by many traditional teachers for their beginning and intermediate students. Professional root-end shakuhachi provide an affordable alternative to imported Japanese flutes to which they compare favorably in terms of performance, appearance, durability and cost. These instruments are being used by teachers and professional musicians in Japan and throughout the world.
