Old Noh pipe "Black Lion" made in the Edo period with cherry birch scrolls.
Old Noh pipe. Made of sooty bamboo and rolled with cherry birch. Black lion head metal. With maki-e lacquer flute tube (silver ring is missing). It is thought to have been made around the middle of the Edo period.
Since this is an old flute, repairs have been repeatedly made to the peeling and cracking of the windings, but there are no problems with playing the flute in its current state. The beeswax inside the mouth has also been adjusted.
The position, angle, and shape of the beeswax inside the mouth of the Noh pipe can be fine-tuned to greatly affect how the breath enters the instrument, the bite of the sound, and the tone quality. Our Nohkan are made with a general amount and shape of wax at the discretion of the flute maker. Please note that fine adjustment may be necessary depending on the player.
This old pipe is thought to date back to the middle of the Edo period. The cicada, singing mouth, and overall form closely resemble the work of Hogyo, but we cannot be certain. It is a flute with good tone quality.
