The master who minds the shop here is an amazing flute player. Let him show you a few things next time you visit. Located in Chinatown, Clarion's got an array of world instruments here, but mostly they specialize in Chinese instruments. The gong selection is insane, beautiful bamboo flutes, pipas, ruans, erhus... They give lessons on a lot of these instruments in the basement, host concerts. On top of selling quality, hard to find instruments, this place is a real resource to connect with the Bay Area music scene.
