Product description

Affordably priced, this authentic shamisen set includes a nagaura (hosozao) shamisen and a beginner’s manual and a wide variety of accessories, which allow everyone, even beginners, to start playing the shamisen right out of the box. The shamisen is carefully handcrafted one by one using quality karin (Chinese quince) wood for the neck and the body parts for the best sound quality. The skin is made from a type of synthetic leather specially designed for achieving durability with a great sound quality. Nagauta shamisen, smaller than Tsugaru shamisen, is a great choice for those looking for a light-weight shamisen and is also the perfect replacement for the chuzao shamisen.
