Recently, I’ve noticed a couple of used shamisens in the 500$USD range on ebay. Judging by the itomaki and kawa, they look like tsugaru shamisens. The pictures aren’t great quality and there are no measurements either. I’m mainly curious if these are telltale signs that they are tsugaru’s for sure- no possibility that they are any other type? I’m entertaining the idea of getting one to practice but would like to collect information before I drop any money.
Looks like free shipping and they come with accessories and cases too. Here are the links if anyone would like to get them! There’s also a “make offer” option so maybe the seller would let them go for even less? There also seems to be a save 10$ promotion going on too.
