Rent a Shamisen

Buying a Shamisen outside of Japan is only possible by directly importing it. So it's difficult to get an affordable instrument as a beginner, to check if this hobby is worth pursuing.

For that reason, I'm offering various rental instruments with attractive rental conditions.

Min'yō Shamisen "Glico"

Available

A very good Instrument for beginners. This Shamisen is purposely made to accompany Min'yō Songs. It has a medium-thick neck and is very comfortable to play. However, it is only partially suited for the strong playing style of Tsugaru.

My very first Shamisen. I named it after the "Glico"-Man in Osaka, the city where I bought.

Accessoires

  • Plectrum (Bachi)
  • Bridge (Koma)
  • Finger-Sock (Yubisuri)
  • 1 Set of Replacement Strings
  • Cleaning Cloth
  • Hardcase

Monthly rental fee: CHF 30 .-

Tsugaru Shamisen "Sakura"

Available

A very good Instrument for intermediates. With a thick neck, it is completely made for the Tsugaru Shamisen Style.

It is also a very modern model: It's made of sustainable "Purple Heart" oakwood, has pink-transparent tuning pegs (Itomaki) and comes with a fitting guitar strap, so you can rock the house while standing!

Made by Tokyo Wagakki and not available to buy anymore.
