Hi Folks, what an amazing summer we had. Sorry it’s been a little quiet on the blog. So many things are happening, always at once. The kids are growing fast! Now, I’m back in full swing in the shop and I really need some room so I will extend my Summer Sale with additional savings to my Facebook Community. Flutes pictured will be $30% off now. Left to right: 1) Wooden Golden Phoenix Shakuhachi - $250. 2) 1.8 1930’s Kinko School Jinashi natural bore - $500. 3) 1990’s Pro level SEIKADO Tozan school - $1600. 4) 3.0 Hotchiku from Chinese Madake - $1100 (s an added bonus, I can apply Shuai translucent Japanese urushi Lacquer to the bore and/or insert an utaguchi inlay on the 3.0 for no extra cost. The wait will be two weeks for the lacquer to cure. This offer is time sensitive.)
Thanks and have a great day! - Perry

Hi, I’m Perry Yung. Welcome! I first discovered the shakuhachi flute while performing in New York City as an actor in Ellen Stewart’s Oedipus the King. Night after night, the subtle sound grew to become all encompassing. Soon, I started making the flute as it was impossible to buy a shakuhachi in the pre-internet days of 1994. Time passed and eight years later got a grant to live in Japan to study traditionally with some of the best makers and players in the world. The shakuhachi changed my life in ways that words can not describe. My goal is to help you with a flute that can open that door as it is a beautiful world on the other side. Come on in!
