Sunreed offers Shakuhachi flutes made from aromatic western cedar. These high quality instruments will be difficult to find anywhere else. Our Shakuhachi are tuned to traditional minor pentatonic scales,utilizing digital quartz tuners. The Shakuhachiâ??s rich, unique tonal quality is unlike that of side-blown bamboo flutes. Though more difficult to play, it is preferred by many because of its haunting tonality and meditative quality. We offer the Shakuhachi flute in other types of wood please, contact us, email@example.com for more information.
