Reasonable Traditional Japanese Flutes
Ryuteki is a kind of Japanese flute and produces high pitch and powerful sounds. This instrument is often used to play outside and can make louder sounds. Unlike shinobue, it has bigger blow hole and a lead near the blow hole and the produces powerful sounds with many overtone. The sounds of ryuteki is often compared to the cry of the dragon as its name suggests (ryuteki means dragon flute in Japanese).
This ryuteki is made of resin. Because this is made of resin and mass-produced, it is very reasonable. Compared to bamboo ryuteki, it may be slightly thick and heavy. But, given the price and sound quality, this is the best choice for beginners. There are two pitches: standard is tuned in the standard gagaku pitch (A=430hz). high pitch is tuned in the western pitch (A=440hz). If you prefer original sounds of ryuteki, choose the standard one.
