|*Newest design to ensure the best playing experience - a redesigned last fingerhole (finger holes for the right small finger). Traditaionally Shinobue fingerholes sits on a striaght line (as are many traditional bamboo flutes around the world). This setting, however, poses an inconvenience for players to cover the last fingerholes perfectly since anatomically speaking, our small finer is usually quite a bit shorter than the index,middle and ring finer. |
We have noticed and discussed this issue a few years back but decided not to change the design out of a desire to retain the Shinobue as in its most original form.
Nonetheless we have received quite a number of feedbacks from our customers, many of them professional flutists, suggesting an alteration to the last fingerhole to improve playing experience, so we decided to try out a new setting. And a big thank you again to our customers, whose opinions and feedback we valued enormously. We hope you like the new design!
