The Japanese Shakuhachi Flute
For those folks who are into doing it themselves, here is a craft manual dealing with the construction of the shakuhachi. It explains how to make your own flute with clear and simple instructions. This manual covers all aspects of the craft: selecting bamboo, where to find it, working the bore of the flute and how to tune the shakuhachi. It provides information on fashioning the blowing edge and inserting the utaguchi, lacquering the bore, binding and repair. There are several diagrams and a source listing for Japanese and other tools.
