This pre-owned hardcase has the ultimate rockstar design! The fitting companion for your beautiful shamisen, I say! It doesn’t just look good, but is super sturdy and has a cool compartment for all the accessories you need for playing.

The previous owner’s name Kawasugi [ 川杉 ] is written on the inside with a sharpie – in my eyes it just makes the thing even more legit 😀 Kawasugi-san also left a little nick and a scratch, but it’s really minor (see photos).

It is Futozao/Tsugaru Shamisen sized, but of course smaller shamisen will fit as well. There’s extra feet on the bottom short side of the case which makes it safe and easy to store it in an upright position as well.

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.
