Im wondering if anyone has ever experimented with a shamisen that has no skin on the back? banjos have opened backs and either use a back plate resonator to turn the sound back towards the front. In clawhammer playing they remove the resonator completely to open the sound up some. I wonder how an open back shamisen might sound. Anyone ever experiment midway through a reskinning? @Kyle_Abbott
@Alexey I saw you’ve been perfecting your silent shami; maybe you’ve done some other experimentation in the past?
