New in 2019, these soft practice shumoku are designed to allow atarigane practice in manageable loudness (below 90db)! It is made of a metal core wrapped with soft fabric to simulate balance of a real antler shumoku. The handle is also carefully shaved for thumb placement to enhance control and speed, which are particular important for Edo Bayashi practice.

Why use practice shumoku?
- Protect our precious hearing; regular play could be as loud as 120db, very damaging to hearing!
- Spare your roommates and neighbors from misery!
- Focus on training your left hand dexterity (with the heavy atarigane)
- In lessons or rehearsals, talk and play at the same time, no earplugs needed!
