Cold environment & skin


Hi there!
I’ve moved to Helsinki Finland recently. Someone it’s inviting me to play to the streets, but here it’s so cold (-2 approx.). I wonder what reaction will have the shamisen skin with that cold. Someone knows about?
Thanks very much!




Hi Rod!
That’s a good question. I think your hands would have more trouble playing in the cold than the shamisen skin. :wink: (at least, mine would be)

I think humidity is the main issue. If it’s not snowing nor very humid, the cold temperature itself shouldn’t be a problem. :slight_smile:
