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.

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!

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.
R. Blyman

 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 

Frederic M.
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 choosing this thin, light, slightly taper bamboo. And I can only praise the perfection of your craftsmanship. This bansuri has all the specification 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

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!

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.

My flute arrived today. THANK YOU! It is beautiful. The flute sounds beautiful, I cannot wait to play some more. I will definitely be purchasing a couple more flutes from you peace,

Thanks for the great carnatic flute. 

Nitya Bernard

 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

Bruce

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, 

Ganesh Athreyaa

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.

 The instrument arrived today. Very nicely done.Thank you.

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!

Hari G.
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.
Paul R

I have recieved the bansuri flute and it sounds awesome......can't wait to record it! I love the tonal qualitites and the way you can bend the notes ...I'm going to get somuch enjoyment out of it. 

Ken Chi

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. 

Sandip Chaudhari

 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, 

Talesh S.

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. 

Prasad Bhandarkar

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

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

Kritika M.

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.

Sara S

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! 

Luis Domingos

 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.                        

George Soutas

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.

Raghu Kumar

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! 

Bhavesh Patel

Hey, I have recieved the Bansuri today Thanks. Its very nice, it looks cool and sounds amazing. I love it. I will definetly buy another1. Thanks.

Mandana Carmen Juon

The flute has safely arrived and it is a fine and beautiful instrument! I'm sure it will bring me many hours of joy and delight. Thank you for making it for me. Best wishes,

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, 

Bryan G

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.                         

Surya H.

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.

Les

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

A. Krishnakumar

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

Morten Steenbach

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

Sandy Diaz

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

Sarah

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,

Jacek

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

Michael Shields,

Yes, I did receive the Bansuri and it is very nice. I would not hesitate to order from you again… Thank you! Namaste.

Chris Mombauer

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 

Tommy

It’s so beautiful and a real work of art It sounds so nice! Many Thanks.

Ermis Savvantoglou

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.

Radhakrishanan R.

 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 

Goktay ATAMAN

my flute very beautiful. thank you very much :)) 

Alex

..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.

Josh M.

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.

Jordi

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

Antti L.

The flute arrived yesterday. I am quite pleased with it. Thank you Jani, Finland Dear Anubodh, Works fine! Thank you 

Kalandar

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

Mir

Your crafted bansuri is absolutely world class, I can proudly claim that I own one. It is amazing the way it sounds and looks; it is so much fun to play such meticulously crafted bansuri.

Liz M.

Thank you so much, it’s really beautifully made and sounds, feels and smells amazing!

Alejandro Aguilar

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    

Daniel Trail

  ... 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... 

Mike

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