Shakuhachi



Most shakuhachi players love the tradition and enchanting sound of bamboo. However, bamboo can be very temperamental if not taken care of properly. David's hardwood shakuhachi have excellent tuning and the sound is pure, clear and bright. And best of all, no worries at all about cracking!

David is famed for his wonderful wooden shakuhachi that have received the highest praise throughout Japan from masters such as Katsuya Yokoyama, Tadashi Tadjima and Hozan Yamamoto. His flutes are famous for their reliability, precision, ruggedness and absolute beauty. Each shakuhachi is created out of unique hardwoods, not only from Australia, but around the world. David has also designed many hybrid flutes, including seven-holed flutes, with which he plays new contemporary and experimental repertoire, and a seven-holed D Major shakuhachi for playing Celtic music.

There are no discount student flutes; all of David's shakuhachi are beautifully finished and perform to a full professional concert standard.
