When you know with 100% certainty you want a fabulous bansuri and you are willing to pay a premium for quality, get yourself an Anubodh bansuri. I have been playing his bamboo flutes for years.
"Hi Doctor Kerry: My new Anubodh bansuri arrived and it's all I hoped for - nice clear sound and beautifully made. I appreciate your guiding me to the right man for the best flute! Thanks!"
