This particular Bansuri flute has been made by hand out of carefully selected bamboo. The flute was made in India by master flutemaker Anant Dhotre. It is played in a similar way to the western concert flute. It's held horizontally and blown from the side. If you've never played such a flute before, it will take some practice to get it right.

It has six finger holes on top. It's tuned to C and plays in the major and minor scale. The flute is around 51 cm long and is suited for people with small, medium, or large hands. You play the C note by covering the three top holes. When you close all holes you play a G note. Therefore, in the western world we could say the flute is actually tuned to G. In effect, you can play in C major as well as in G major.

To play in the major scale, start with either all holes closed, or with only the top 3 holes closed (this would be the Indian way of playing a major scale). To play in the minor scale, start with 5 closed, or with only 1 closed.

The flute comes with a shoulder bag.
