This used hardcase is especially lightweight and makes schlepping around your shamisen a lot more comfortable. It closes with a zipper and comes with a handy shoulder strap. There’s a name scribbled on the side, but apart from that it’s in tip top condition. Fits a hosozao or chuuzao (like Nagauta, Jiuta, Minyo) shamisen.
Not having to take your instrument apart to transport it is a huge game changer, because you’re always ready to whip out your shamisen and play. Keeping your instrument assembled means it practically stays in tune. The hard shell keeps your instrument safe from people, doors and sneaky corners attempting to bump into your shamisen.
