I have wanted to learn the shamisen for about 17 years and finally got up the courage to invest in myself.
Starting small though as I don’t want to overcommit and feel forced into continuing, I have looked at the koshamisen.
Does anyone have some advice for the absolute fresh people as to purchase list.
I figure a Bachi, Koma (planning on Shinobi and regular), koshamisen and the strings, but as it is so much smaller, I can’t get the markings for the neck and the chamber being so much smaller, I guess doukake won’t fit?
Is there anything else I should be including in the quote request?
Thanks in advance!
