Press coverage - an introduction to Shamisen-Katoh




The way of a right meeting of the visitor from the foreign country.(You Tube)

Mugen 21 has a specially designed microphone installed within the body of an authentic shamisen.

It amplifies the sound of the acoustic shamisen faithfully.

Annoying noises and howling caused by the use of contact microphones or standing microphones are entirely eliminated.

Connect Mugen 21 to any effector and create your own sound. With our wireless model, you can even move freely on and off the stage.

When you unplug the microphone cord,  Mugen 21 can be used as a high quality acoustic shamisen.
