Shamisen 三味線

Shamisen 三味線

from 5.00

Shamisen (三味線) means “three strings” in Japanese and is the name of a traditional Japanese musical instrument played with a plectrum called a “bachi.” There are different styles and shapes of shamisen for different uses; some are for kabuki, and others for bunraku puppet plays and folk songs. The neck of a shamisen is fretless and much slimmer than a banjo or guitar.

Available in two sizes. Frame not included.
