'Anubodh's bansuri is a treat for a bansuri connoisseur. It goes well beyond the basics (tuning, ergonomics etc.) and it is very obvious that a lot of thinking has gone into making the bansuri. Well done Anubodh and thanks....'

Prasad Bhandarkar
Senior disciple of Pandit Chaurasia
He has a very informative website www.bansuriflute.com

'Yes, I have received the wonderful bansuri. It plays beautifully. The tone of the flute is amazing. It is warm, mellow, and might I say creamy. The tuning is really great as well. Thanks so much.'

I've received the new "G" bansuri you made for me and have now had a few days to play it. I'm quite happy with it, thank you. The quality of your work is excellent and you clearly have an artistic touch. I'm also very pleased to find that the pitch matches my shakuhachi flute embrasure well. This is the first bansuri I've gotten that is on A=440 pitch without my having to force and bend the pitch to get it in tune.
Bill F., California

I used your flute during a small concert I had performed back in India. I should say that the flute is excellent in terms of clarity of sound and precision of notes. The precision of tharasthayi panchamam (top pa) is some thing you will find only rarely. Thank you very much for making such a nice flute for me.
Hari G., MN

The bansuri you sent me is absolutely wonderful in every way. What a piece of art! Thanks for your time, patience and advice. I really felt I got just what I wanted. I hope to see you up on the Vineyard sometime. Best wishes,
Josh M., MA

Finally I've got it (Shuddh Madhyam F)! Thank you very much for this beautiful flute. I appreciate a lot the special care you have taken in chosing this thin, light, slightly taper bamboo. And I can only praise the perfection of your craftmanship. This bansuri has all the specificities I expected, meaning it combines the advantage of wide bore and light weight bamboo (as I had requested). Furthermore, it is an enchanting instrument. As you know, it plays loud, clear, vibrates with a great sensitivity, and react even at the slightest blow. Thanks again,
Frederic M., France

I found the best flute maker! Your flute is a joy to play. From a technical point of view I never thought such a long C# bass bansuri could be so well in tune and comfortable to play. In fact, its warm-toned, rich in harmonics sound makes it the best flute I played so far. I feel very lucky. Be sure I’ll let my colleagues know of your craftsmanship.
Ermis Savvantoglou, student of Hariji at Rotterdam Consevatorium, Holland

The exterior appearance of the flute clearly indicates that you're a perfectionist, but the sound is what makes it worth. It is sharp and clear in the range of 2 octaves and one note (I only got that far til now). I believe the neo feature enables a higher volume and it's really a pleasure to play it. Thanks a lot.
Luis Domingos, Portugal

I just realized I havn't told you how the flute was. Now I have had it for a while and it really plays great. The tone is quite abit darker than I was used to from my old one, so it took alittle time to readjust. The thing that stands out for me is the evenness of tones from low to high octave. It's also much smoother when bending notes and the blowing hiss that bugged me on my old one is not there. Thanks alot for a great flute
Kalandar, Arizona

The flute arrived today and it is lovely! Thank you for such a wonderful Bansuri! I also love the color of the bindings! Thank you very much. If I run into someone who is looking for a Bansuri you will be the first person I recommend! Cheers,
Shoshana, Vermont

My son is very happy with his new flute and is slowly adjusting to the different fingering and wonderful sounds. Thank You.
Sandy Diaz , NY

The instrument arrived today. Very nicely done.Thank you.
Dean S , Taos, NM

I am very happy with my new bansuri. What a clean and clear sound. The craftmanship is outstanding and I am so thankful to have discovered you. I will certainly purchase from you only in the future. Thanks again,

Douglas, Montana

Got the bansuri and fell in love with it immediately. It is absolutely exquisite and worth the wait. Thanks for everything,
Prasad Bhandarkar, California

I was amazed at the workmanship and precision of the instrument. The lower and middle half octaves sound great and the flute is so soft on my fingers. I am amazed that the flute is responding wonderfully to all the little finger movements for embellished gamakA and BhAvA... I am amazed at their quality and I haven't seen any other better carnatic flutes in my life time. Simply wonderful with the exact pitch I was looking for,the right hole dimensions that my fingers can comfortably playon, great sound with no air and ...what can I say..Hats off to you..Great job! http://www.youtube.com/flutekrishnan
Radhakrishnan R., California

Received the flutes this evening. Neo carnatic flute has a really nice tone. The other G bass carnatic flute is also very good. Thanks,
A. Krishnakumar, California

The bansuri is outstanding, has beautiful tone. And now I know "what others are saying...", the feel and smoothness is incredible. The offset is an arrangement I hadn't seen before and it works for me. Thank you for working with me and answering my questions. I'm glad I have taken John W's advice to come to you for a quality instrument.
Bryan Gall, Maryland

I received the flute today and I liked it very much. Ö It is amazing. Thanks and Regards,

Tommy, AZ

Thank you for the beautiful bansuri you built!! Like your promise it is simply beautiful, perfect in tune and beautiful bamboo too. I am almost speechless with it. If I will order a bansuri again I will order it from you. Keep you work good.
Surya H., Holland

Such a beautiful flute!!! Thank you very very much. Toshiya Ishida, Japan

I just got the bansuri today it is a beautiful instrument and has a beautiful sound ... thank you very much and i will be looking forward to ordering another bansuri in the near future. Thank you for a beautiful flute.
George Soutas, Greece

...I really have to compliment you on its workmanship. it is by far the best of all i have seen and played in the couple of years since i have been learning. the details such as the burned and beveled edges at both ends and the glass like finishing around the finger holes are magnificent not to mention the work done inside the bansuri itself!, all lends to a pleasant experience while playing. so smooth and clear, the sound quality is amazing! i will definitely keep this one and later i will order others i am sure. i am very glad to have found you.  thanks for your good work.
Alex, Texas   ... it does sing beautifully.  I am very impressed and pleased in every way with this piece, Anubodh, and I want to thank you for your excellent work.  I am already dreaming up the next flute I will order from you...
Daniel Trail, Alaska

Thank you and I have received the flute last week, sound is beautiful, thank you for your work! Will enjoy my journey very much with it.
Ken Chi, Australia

You are really amazing and have skill that cannot be compared. I got my Flutes yesterday perfectly on time, and almost sleeping with them. Especially the F# flute, for which I am speechless. Each of the flutes is tuned to perfection. J. Majumdar, Seattle

I received the flute today, and could not believe how beautiful it sounds! Thank you so much. I really appreciate you taking the time and making the second flute for me, especially with everything you had going at the time. The first thing I noticed was the deep quality of the flute itself; it just looks so much more majestic than any other flute I have seen! The quality of the material, the touch and feel of it in my hands, the look, everything looks fantastic. The first thing I noticed when playing it was the wholesomeness of the sound. It just seemed to fill up the whole room with its rich sound! The two other flutes I have come up very short when compared to this flute's sound. The second thing I noticed was how much easier it was play the upper registry notes, especially everything above the upper Shadjam. I also find it extremely feasible to play the lower octave notes. Overall, the flute is simply fantastic, and could not have asked for anything better! Raghu Kumar , Illinois

I got the bansuri! Thanks very much. I am very pleased with it. Has deep , clear sound... All the best to you.Jacek , Ireland

Sorry I haven't written back sooner.  I received the D med. bansuri not long ago.  It's absolutely wonderful!  Stunning intonation & what a beautiful, rich timbre!  Now I have to begin learning some Indian bansuri music in addition to all the other types of music I play!  :)   Thank you again & take care.  I wish you the best in all your future flute making & playing!  If I ever find anyone looking for a bansuri, I will definitely recommend they contact you first!Amanda , South Carolina

my flute very beautiful. thank you very much :)) Goktay ATAMAN, Turkey

The bansuri is beautiful, and sounds great!  Thanks very much.  I'll be ordering another (a Bb) through your website soon.Les , Canada

yesterday the package is arrived!!!
Very well packaged, beautiful Flutes, wonderful sound, you are a great professional flute maker!!! .Always wonderful Bansuri!!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!Pasquale de martino, Italy

I just wanted to tell you that my Guru absolutely loved the bansuri. Thank you so much for facilitating this for me on such short notice.
Thank you again.
Talesh , Canada

Ja me llegó la Bansuri, es estupenda!... uf, voy a tener mucho trabajo para hacerla sonar.
Jordi , Spain

 I really enjoy playing the flute you sent me.  GREAT tone and intonation!  It's nice the way the lighter bamboo vibrates in my hands.  Plays easily into the 3rd octave ga komal, I can more often then not get the elusive 3rd octave ni komal
R Blyman , NY

The flute arrived today...thank you so much! It is very beautiful, and I am making a few sounds. I really look forward to learning. The bag and colors are beautiful...thank you so much!
Denise, California

I received the bansuri today and am very pleased with it! I am a professional violinist, but I am a total beginner to bansuri. A friend let me borrow a bansuri for my first lesson, but already I can tell that this one is easier to play! I don't have to stretch nearly as much to reach Pa--the sixth hole. Thanks so much!
Sara S., California

the flutes and the bag arrived, here, monday morning. very nice. they have a well-focused & full tone, and are very much in tune from one end to the other. not fuzzy-sounding, like some instruments. the half-holed notes do quite well. & they look & feel fine. i will send you a couple of recorded examples, maybe next week. i will want a few more instruments, eventually. thank you,
Bruce, California

today i received the Bansuri. It's a wonderfull instrument. The first impression is very good. It has much more resonance than the Bass-Bansuri (Sa : Eb) i play now. My head and chest are full of vibration if i play, amazing. Thank you and greetings
Chris Mombauer, Germany

already recived the bansuri. I´m so grateful about your job and your colaboration. I hope the Divine bless your job and all your life. thank you, with gratitude
Alejandro Aguilar, Bogotá, Colombia

It's beautiful - and it fits me much better - so I'm happy:-) All the best!

Michael Michael Shields, NY

Julien Moretto, France

The flute you made for me is excellent. Its a pleasure handling the instrument and it seems to get better and better. Like my spiritual Guru said, its not made of bamboo, but of sugarcane.. :D :D :D Please find some recordings in the following links from a concert I played with the flute. I have also attached an image of me in the concert.

I received the bansuri yesterday. It is one of the most mellifluous, soulful musical object I have ever played! Thank you very much. Best Regards,

the flute is excellent. I thankyou so much for your help, integrity and skills. It has been a worthwhile experience for me of worthwhile internet trading, especially when there has been unintentional problems. So Anubodh, a final (well until a probable next order) thanks and best wishes
Nitya Bernard, Australia

I just received my flute yesterday and it's amazing. I am already in love with it. I spent all night yesterday playing and I even woke up early today to play. The flute is even better than I had expected it to be. THANK YOU SOO Much! I wouldn't have found a better bansuri elsewhere. Thanks for your time and if I ever need another, I will definetly order from you again. Take care.
Kritika M., Washington

Megan Loves her Bansuri. Thanks. She's looking at the C flute version ( Maybe a Christmas present). Cheers
