Hi there! Long time lurker, first-time poster.
I’m selling a Jiuta shamisen set and I’m based in Japan. I was wondering if anyone on here would be interested in buying it, because not a lot of people actually play Jiuta shamisen from my area (ironically enough, I live where Tsugaru Jamisen was born but took up Jiuta lol) and it’d be sad seeing it in a second-hand shop because it definitely won’t be cared for and most people do not know its worth. Most people on Bachido seem to either play Nagauta or Tsugaru shamisen, too. So I think it’d be the perfect chance to try Jiuta shamisen.
So about the shamisen:
The shamisen is in perfect condition, no wear or tear or even stains. It looks pretty much brand new. The reason I’m selling it is that I don’t really have time to play this shamisen and it’s a waste. Just needs a loving home!
The set comes with:
- Hard Case
- Pluck/Bachi(made of wood/Tsuge)
- Rubber Knee Pad
- Unused spare strings (one for each string)
- Koma (bridge)
- Beginner’s book with shamisen songs (for Jiuta). (it’s in Japanese though…)
- Digital Tuner
- Cloth Cover for shamisen body
- Cloth for cleaning shamisen
- width(top): 2.6cm
- width(bottom): 2.9cm
- Wood (Karin)
- Skin (synthetic)
My price for the set is $600 USD . Shipping is not included. Shipping price depends where you are in the world, I have to check my post office for prices. I don’t have any documents that come with this shamisen if you’re looking for that.
If you’re interested, please send me a private message !
