A Collection of Five Japanese Bachi

Japan

19th Century

Ivory, Whalebone and Tortoiseshell

Lengths ranging from 20.5 to 25.5 cm (8.25 to 10.25 in)

The bachi is a Japanese pick or plectrum which is used to play the shamisen which is a three stringed instrument with a construction similar to a banjo having a skin stretched both back and front over a hollow body.

The size, shape and material of which a bachi is made depends on the type of music to be played as well as the skill of the musician; softer more flexible materials being easier to play with than harder materials which also produce a stronger sound.

Private U.K. Collection
