Bachido is the online “home” for shamisen players around the world. Our mission is to support you with everything you need to play the shamisen: instruction, community, and of course, the instrument itself.

I hope you will join this amazing international community!

(Wondering what shamisen is all about? Read this.)

I'm ecstatic to find a supportive, English speaking community on the web that has an accessible store with training supplies!
