Marusan Hashimoto is one of the top brands for shamisen strings and is known for its high quality strings. Professional performers choose this brand.
We offer the middle string (ni no ito) made from tetron, the most robust synthetic material used for shamisen strings. The thread size is 15, which is a safe choice for Tsugaru style but works with Jiuta, Minyo and Kouta as well. Nagauta players might choose a thinner string for the middle string, but it really is up to your own taste.
Please note that all strings are sold individually and not in multi-packs.
