Hello. My name is Carsten klatte. I am a musician from Berlin, Germany. I just bought one of your rosewood D shakuhachi´s.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making such brilliant shakuhachi. It is such a wonderful instrument. !!! it is like a sports car…. it is so fast and so „on the point“ !!!
the best wooden shaku I have now!! I have maple , metal and bamboo…. and due to the climate circumstances here in germany, I prefer to play non bamboo flutes even if they do not sound like bamboo, but one thing is the sound and another thing is the stability and the playfullnness of the flute.
your shakuhachi now is on top. !!!
I was looking for nearly a year for an instrument like this……….. it is brilliant. thank you verry much, for being involved into fllute making. you made a musician very happy.
If you want, because from time to time, I ll be doing free improvisation videos on you tube, I will send you a take, as far as I have recorded one.
Love and respect from germany. stay how you are. you are beautyful.

Hi! Now I had the time to get acquainted with my new 1.1 Ashwood Shaku – and it plays really nice!
The sound is both warm and strong and I find it very well tuned. Been looking for a very long time
for a 1.1 high quality wooden Shaku and finally found mine 🙂
I’ve been a professional musican for 30 years now. (New Age Genre)
I’m looking forward to using your Shaku in a recording session!

Anastasia and Pavel,
Thank you so much for my beautiful flute. I received it about a week ago and have been playing it alot. It has a sweet voice and plays in tune. Took some getting used to playing a wooden Quena but I like it very much.

about Low Whistle D rosewood
The flute has arrived! It is a marvel. The sound is nice and the difference between the octaves in volume is more than acceptable. Nice sound like the wind, not completely clear but more like a whisper. It has personality. I like it. Thanks 🙏 my new found friend, I will think of you often. I will make a film with it when I am with my band.

I’m enjoying my Ashwood D whistle, great tone and getting used to the bigger bore, gets the 3rd octave quite well. Good volume for playing with the band.

Got it today. It’s a lovely instrument, plays well, is breaking in nicely, and I’m grateful for your service.
Music is an important part of life for many of us to participate in as fully as possible. Thank you for helping that to happen with your flutes.

Taro Matsumoto — performer on the Japanese shakuhachi flute, studied with Riley Lee и Toshimitsu Ishikawa.
A review of Taro Matsumoto on flute Shakuhachi 1.8 from rosewood, Nara, Japan, Nov 2015:
The flute looks really good and beautiful! I especially like the bottom part design. The flute is set up well, the quality of the wood is also OK. Although the maximum sound volume is less,
than at bamboo shakuhachi of top level, the flute from rosewood sounds better serial Japanese wooden shakuhachi! Excellent work!
