Since this shamisen has a specially designed microphone installed within the body of an authentic shamisen, it amplifies the sound of the acoustic shamisen faithfully. When you unplug the microphone cord, it can be used as a high quality acoustic shamisen. It connect to any effector and create your own sound.
The shamisen is a plucked stringed instrument. However the body resembles a drum, having a hollow body that is taut front and back with skin, in the manner of a banjo.Its construction follows a model similar to that of a guitar or a banjo, with a neck and strings stretched across a resonating body. The neck of the shamisen is fretless and slimmer than that of a guitar or banjo.
In the past it was said that the best sound quality is produced from a shamisen bound in cat skin. Therefore, the shamisen of professional players have been often taut in cat skin although it was more delicate and very expensive. However, it is made by improved various high technology now.
