Ken LaCosse

Welcome to the Mujitsu Shakuhachi web site. Here you'll find shakuhachi flutes made by Ken LaCosse of San Francisco, California.    

Mujitsu Shakuhachi are played by students, teachers and professional musicians throughout the world. These shakuhachi are made using a hand adjusted bore technique. With this method, the natural shape of the bore of the flute is used as much as possible, adjusting only where necessary. To familiarize yourself with the Mujitsu method, please read the flutemaking approach section. There is also a page of photographs and descriptions of shakuhachi in stock which changes periodically, so be sure to return for the latest update.
