Kurebara Seigaku?

Does anybody know anything about this late Edo-early Meiji Myoan player and maker?

Re: Kurebara Seigaku?

I got some more information about him from Gudo Ishibashi via John Singer

"Born around 1840
Died around 1890
Myoan shimpo ryu
Made fat hard to play flutes mostly after Meiji restoration
Student of Sorest"

Anybody know who Sorest is?

Re: Kurebara Seigaku?

"Sorest" would be a really weird name for a 19th-century Japanese person to have, unless it's an idiosyncratic romanization of "Soresuto" or something (but even that would still be a really weird name for a Japanese person to have).

I talked to John, he misspelled it in the email. It's Soetsu.

Here's the Kurebara 2.0 with weird grafted root and huge holes.

Very nice flute. I've played it. Perfect for Myoan and probably good for Nezasa Ha, though you'd have to ask John.

What is the asking price for it, Brian? Still $4K?

I could also ask myself if it's good for Nezasaha and answer, "yes."

Not for sale anymore because I traded my other Myoan 2.0 to John for a 2.3 so this has moved up the 2.0 batting order.

Re: Kurebara Seigaku?

Thanks for the links No-Sword. Fascinating how the Myoan, gaikyoku, and Tozan are all so closely related. Defies our current convenient pigeon-holing of those styles.
