These traditional Japanese musical instruments are made of select maple rather than conventional bamboo, by Zen-On, known for years for their fine acoustics in recorders and other wooden products. The use of wood makes it possible to get the most acoustically ideal bore without being subject to the shape of natural bamboo. These fine shakuhachi have the endorsement of such highly respected players as Katsuya Yokoyama and Hozan Yamamoto. This instrument is tuned to the pentatonic scale in the key of D with a Kinko mouthpiece
