Shamisen Bachi Enamel Pin Brooch

Shamisen Bachi Enamel Pin Brooch


This limited-edition pin is dedicated to all lovers of the traditional Japanese shamisen!

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.

This pin is a depiction of the shamisen “bekko” bachi plectrum which is traditionally made from tortoiseshell, favoured for its flexibility.

This pin would make the perfect gift for any shamisen lover in your life. It will be manufactured in high gloss gold hard enamel and can be used as a brooch, bag decoration, lapel pin, or simply displayed as a collectible.
