The Japanese In-Sen

The Story: I stepped out of a room in my shop and a dusty basket full of stuff fell to the floor behind me. I turned around to see what had happened and cleaned up. But from inside that basket a discarded flute was still laying on the floor. I picked it up and noticed the word In-Sen written on it. Curious, I dusted the flute and played it and to my amazement, the room filled with an atmosphere of ancient Japan.

The In-Sen flute had the old Japanese Koto scale created by Yat-su-hashi Ken-gyō, a blind musician-composer from Kyoto Japan, who was born in 1614. He adopted this scale to be played on the stringed Koto. Yatsuhashi who is known today as the father of the Koto, died in 1685. But his old Koto scale lives on in this flute and is ready to fill your special place with the music of ancient Japan.

The In-Sen Flute is made from my home-grown bamboo which first came to Florida from Japan back in the mid 1880's. It is 16 inches long, has a back hole and a pinky hole and comes with a binding and a protective flute bag, and is ready to send you today with free shipping inside the USA.

Hi Erik,
Just a short note to let you know I love the InSen
flute. Very well made, like all your other flutes. It
produces a very nice sound that evokes images of
ancient Japan and takes me away from the hectic
nature of modern life. Beautiful tone and a joy to play.
