The Shinobue is awesome, great quality and it came 1 day before the delivery date, it was hard at the start but i´m getting the hang of it. One thing to consider tho, when it reached my country i was required to pay for importation taxes to the delivery company which i thought was included in the price. I´m satisfied
Fast shipping, great contact with the seller. Excellent quality product.
It sounds beautiful and the bag is pretty nice. Plus all notes are perfectly tuned.
A note for pure beginners like me: it took me a few hours to get a real sound out of this shinobue, so there's a real learning curve involved here.
However, with a few weeks of practice, I can now actually play some simpler songs, do some of the higher octave notes, etc.
It took a bit of perseverance to start and there's obviously ton more to learn, but I'm extremely happy with this Tamaki and I'd heartily recommend it to other beginners. Also great for anyone who wants a durable shinobue that can be safely put in a backpack without worry of humidity or cracking the instrument.
While bamboo still offers the best timbre, the Rippei Temaki sounds great and a good starting point to the world of shinobue. Well done.
Wonderful! Plays very well in tune to the western scale!
