I would be happy to write a testimonial for the Yuu Shakuhachi. I think they are the best thing that’s ever happened for shakuhachi beginners in the USA. Financially and qualitatively they can’t be beat. There is nothing else close out there for the price.

I like the Yuu Shakuhachi very much. I like the quality of this flute for the price.

What a surprising instrument is the Yuu Shakuhachi. Robust plastic, molded into the form of a bamboo root-end, it certainly looks the part. But the most pleasing aspect is the tremendous sound; so clear and responsive. I would have no hesitation in using the Shakuhachi Yuu in a performance at any level. It is a must for beginners, and at such a reasonable price, and as a “second” flute for experienced shakuhachi players, professionals and teachers.
