This is a brush pen picture of me playing one of the artists Jonathan Ulrich at our shop did.
Is that a 2.7?
It's a Grass and Wind 2.1 jinashi. ( http://www.gwflutes.com ) It's one of my favorite flutes. If you check out my myspace page at: http://www.myspace.com/harpgear you will find pics of me all over with it. I have some nice jiari and other jinashi but this one is my main go to flute when I am out and about playing. It just has a certain feel and sound to it. I have been eyeing one of Ken's Taimu flutes but I have to do some saving up for the one I want.
Hey Brian - This is Chris, your fellow Floridian over in Melbourne. That's a cool drawing... looks a lot like me, only I have a longer beard, and I'm not southpaw. Thanks for the link to Grass and Bamboo. I didn't know about Jon Kypros' flutes, though I'd seen his name. Beautiful, natural flutes... and affordable! It's cool to know of another tuned-in jinashi player in FL.
At some point, there'll be a FL shakuhachi summit. That'll be cool.
We should just get together sometime. I am willing to make the drive down there. Melbourne is beautiful and it gives me a reason to go. I have pondered trying to put a workshop together in FL and have some great teachers come in. Normally, I help organize these for blues harmonica around the country. I just need to get enough interested people to commit. Like I said, if you are ever interested in some company your way let me know.
