The Sanshin features a solid build and a present but gentle sound, rigorously tested and tuned before getting shipped to stores. Specifications: Karakui (tuning pegs) – Black Utaguchi (soundhole) – Cow bone Uma (bridge) – Bamboo, wide foot design.
Makabe neck Apitong lumber coating: Makabe type Sanshin are often thought to be among the most beautiful thanks to their glossy, luxurious paint finish. Every neck is carefully checked for any manufacturing defects and scratches before assembly.
Artificial Leather Body: Our Ryukyu Smile version is the most popular artificial leather Sanshin among new players. It's incredibly durable, so there’s no need to worry about skin tearing of any kind. You can practice for hours on end without the need to do excessive maintenance on the instrument.
Artificial leather is often thought to be variable in its sound quality, but the strength and tension of the leather we apply are among the highest quality available. The result is a gentle tone for you to explore for countless hours ahead.
Ryukyu Smile is the true gateway to your new Sanshin life. Karakui (tuning peg): The karakui tuning pegs are carved from ebony wood with hexagonal lines. The karakui is the most important part of the instrument as they’re responsible for tuning your Sanshin, which is why we’ve selected high-grade, non-slip ebony.
Intonation is among the most difficult concepts to master for newer players, but our craftsmen have installed high-quality, easy-to-use pegs so you’re in-tune and on key every time you play.
Strings: Ryukyu No.2 nylon strings were chosen for their soft tone.
Tiger label: A standard left crest pattern beautifully wraps around the body of the instrument embroidered with the prestigious, long-standing Ryukyu royal family crest. The Ryukyu Smile will bring music and joy to your life.
Includes: A soft case, instruction manual, tuning guide, karakui guide, clip tuner, positional stickers, Sanshin strap, horse mute, cow horn claws, pick, spare strings, spare bridge, karakui tuning pegs, heavenly cap, Sanshin cloth, play-along / karaoke.
The Voyapon website has existed since 2015, when our founders envisioned the idea of bringing "off-the-beaten-path" Japan to the English, French, Spanish, and German-speaking world. Since then, our writers have created more than 3,000 articles shedding light on parts of Japan few overseas visitors have ever had a chance to visit. We would like to believe that our hard work has helped connect the lesser-traveled parts of Japan with the rest of the world.
