The best flutes I have ever played! Thank you, Anubodh, for making them for me and my family.
I love the flute you made. You are a great flute maker!
Dynamic curve, shading range, chromatic accuracy, a robust lower octave and a softer higher range are fundamental to what i need in a bansuri. Anubodh’s Bansuri’s delivers this and much more. His research in bansuri acoustics is extensive and ongoing, which augurs well for even more amazing instruments in the future.....
Anubodh's bansuris are simply the best. I also like that I can speak to him and get custom features on a particular instrument. He has also helped many of my students. It helps that he himself plays bansuri and that he has such a deep attunement to this music.
in my 40 years of flute playing, the precision, the extra care, the right tuning and the artistic attitude that Anubodh brings to flute making is unmatched. I have known him for over a decade and have bought scores of flutes from him for myself and my students. And I can say that he really pours his heart, mind and soul in each flute. This, his flutes speak, or rather sing, for themselves.
Brilliant flute maker! Absolutely wonderful flutes! Over the years Anubodh ji has helped translate my ideas and expectations of sound quality by building flutes with wide tonal range, acoustic coloring and easier mechanics. I highly recommend his flutes to my students and flute players around the world.
I have been buying Anubodh’s flutes for many years both for myself and for my students. The flutes are high quality, with perfect pitch, and easy to play. My students especially love these flutes because of the ease of playing and the perfection of the swara sthana and the alignment of the higher and lower octaves. I enthusiastically recommend Anubodh’s flutes.
A well tuned flute is a basic requirement of every Flutist.A good tone is an added gift. Often this is considered to be a standard parameter to access a Flute. On a personal front, I practicing and performing indian classical music over three decades find it very hard to have a Flute with much more subtle peripherals along with the Sruti Shuddhi/pitch alignment, Sthaayi Shuddhi/octvaves alignment and Nada Shuddhi/embouchure placement being the basic requirements. It is a rarity to get the Anu Swaras or the micro tones and the Ghana-naya aspect or the dynamics along with the above mentioned basic features. Unlike 12 chromatic notes in western classical music,South Indian classical music involves 22 shrutis or the 22 micro tones which is the hallmark of our ancient art system! To have all these settled- sublime facilities in an indian classical musical instrument is the hardest thing and a mandatory aspect for a sensitive professional performer.
Years of understanding and intense research would be the fruit of such creation - Sri Anubodh has acquired that excellence and artistry to carve such Flutes with all these magnificent features. His understanding of the instrument-'Flute' is deep. Playing his Flutes gives me a wholesome experience of a full circle. Every Flute is elegantly hand crafted; The finishing of each hole and binding of threads is a piece of art Par-excellence.
I highly recommend Sri Anubodh Flutes to everyone. I extend my heart felt gratitude for making incredible Flutes for me and I wish to have many more in the days to come. May the Divine shower him all the laurels.
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.
Over last many years Anubodh has made a lot of flutes for me. Anubodh's flutes are like a piece of art, very good in tune and easy to play. The big thing is that when you have special questions, he is listens, thinks deeply about it and makes a flute adapted to your style; your body; whatever you want…amazing. Recently, I received a flute of Anubodh; a D bass flute totally adapted to my hands. I flute my way on this flute and directly tears come…I discovered how to whistle with my fingers on this new flute …I felt really proud about my flute maker ! And also because of him I live the flute way.
Anubodh is a remarkable flute maker. In my several decades of acquiring and playing flutes, he stands alone as someone who brought a modern approach to making flutes. Anubodh has reinvented the humble bansuri, and his craftsmanship shines through in the resonant timbre, the precise tuning, and the incorporation of innovations like the neo-bansuri. I derive great pleasure from playing his flutes, and commend him highly.
Anubodh’s flutes are fantastic. They sound full and rich with the same tone quality over the whole range! And have a an incredible ergonomic design - no problem for the fingers - even with very large flutes. Among other flutes, I have also a C#-Bass Neo-Bansuri from him - which is really very easy to play. The intonation is absolutely perfect - fits for indian classical (more just intonation) and at the same time perfect to improvise in Jazz-Style (different tonalities on the same flute) which I do like a lot :-). I love them!
I got my flute and it’s absolutely beautiful! I can’t believe how much body and volume it has!
I first met Anubodh in the mid-2000’s and have been playing his bamboo flutes ever since. Anubodh is my favorite bansuri maker because his flutes are well-tuned, have nice tone, feel good on the fingers, last a long time, and have properly placed 7th and 8th holes (which make the bansuri far more versatile). Anubodh made the bansuri I have played nearly every day for the past eight years. I have taught with it in nearly all of my bansuri tutorial videos and I expect it to play it for many years to come. If you are dedicated to bansuri and plan to play regularly, do yourself and your audience a favor and get yourself a bansuri made by Anubodh.
