These hizagomu have different colors on the front and back side to double the fun. The material is very sturdy and especially long-lasting. There’s also a symbol embossed on each side.
Hizagomu are placed on your thigh to prevent the shamisen from slipping.
If you have ever experienced tense posture and discomfort due to a shifting or slipping instrument, I highly recommend purchasing a hizagomu or dougomu.
These hizagomu are non-adhesive and are the perfect companion for those players who don’t want to glue anything to their beloved instrument. These little rubber pads have a very grippy texture that keep your instrument in place. The size is just perfect – it’s small enough to not be visible to the audience but big enough to make it easy to use because you don’t have to pinpoint the little pad with the dou.
