Home-made Shakuhachi stand
This is the latest addition to the list of home-made ‘masterpieces’.
As in all previous creations, recycled materials are used as much as possible.
When recycled materials are not in hand, I look to the nearby forests for bamboo.
This stand holds three flutes.
The one in the middle is actually a Taiwanese flute, called Nan Xiao.
Historically speaking, the Nan Xiao is somewhat like an elder brother to the Shakuhachi.
The one I have is eight-holed, tuned to G.
It is relatively easier to handle, and softer in sound volume compared to the Shakuhachi.
The Shakuhachi on the left is Kinko-ryu style, while the one on the right is Tozan-ryu style.
I love playing all of them very much.
Coming back to the masterpiece story, I believe this is the only one in the world that is designed the way it is… no?
