Shakuhachi have the inner bore coated with Lacquer in order to ensure longevity.
All bamboo must go though a traditional curing method which involves heating & drying. A process which takes a minimum of 1 year to get the bamboo ready for being turned into a Shakuhachi.
Bindings are an important part of Shakuhachi building. Bindings ensure flute longevity. Proper bindings leave the surface of bamboo uniform and add to the spirit of the instrument.
Not all bamboo is the same. Shakuhachi bamboo must be hand selected by and experienced maker. Proper requirements must be met in order to create a Shakuhachi.
To create a beautiful and strong blowing edge each Shakuhachi must go though many steps in order to be able to achieve proper pitch and a strong resonance.
This comes from proper understanding of bamboo. Tone refinement must be correct in order for a Shakuhachi to be in balance and harmony.
