Pro-Grade 13-PIECE Indian Bansuri Flute Set - from A to G# (Indian Notation).
Thickest quality bamboo, especially burnt and treated for long life. Unbeatable Value! Please do not confuse this with the $30-$50 Chinchor flimsy bamboo touristy rubbish coming from North India.
The North Indian bansuri is a side-blown flute invented in this century by Pannalal Ghosh. It is made of single jointed, thin-walled bamboo and is tuned to an untempered chromatic scale. The Bansuri has a range of approximately three octaves. The best Bansuris are made of rare Sunderbans bamboo reeds and are almost invariably hand made. The lovely woody flavour makes it a truly amazing and other-worldly sound
The bansuri is striking in both its simplicity and richness. Originally a folk instrument, the bansuri has evolved a dazzling classical repertoire and found its way into the contemporary jazz and world music scene.
The Indian flute produces some of the world's most melodic and melancholic music. It's a great new instrument to learn and even amateurs can derive terrific joy and comfort from this elegant instrument with heavenly soul-soothing sounds.
Each of our instruments is individually tuned and is carefully roasted and sanded. The wood looks messy and burnt but this treatment makes the fragile raw bamboo reed to last for years and prevents cracking. The rustic look of this flute is more than compensated by an absolutely divine sound and one of the lowest puffs of any flute. It's a great new instrument to learn, and very easy to control. .
