The Shakulute headjoint for the silver flute is a completely new concept in woodwinds originally developed by Tai Hei Shakuhachi in 2001. It replaces the side-blown headjoint of the Western transverse flute with that of an end-blown shakuhachi headjoint to create an innovative new sound and style of music. This hybrid instrument allows the player to employ blowing styles and techniques distinctive to the traditional Japanese shakuhachi while using fingerings common to the western classical Boehm flute. The resulting sound is a unique blend of East and West that can be achieved on no other instrument. It is perfect for the western flautist interested in producing music with a Japanese touch as well as the traditional shakuhachi player who wants to experiment with western scales and intonation.
