Salvaged Old Growth Redwood Bansuri, Key of B (tonic E)

$350.00

Salvaged Old Growth Redwood, featuring an African blackwood lip plate. Key of B, tonic E. Redwood is a very soft and lightweight wood! It is wonderfully resonant to play, but it is not as robust as a hardwood, so handle appropriately.

NOTE: This is the largest bansuri that I make, and for those who are familiar with this tuning you will know that these require quite a reach. Not recommended for beginners or players with smaller hands. If you have any doubts about the reach, contact me to discuss before purchase.

Green Ebonite Quena, Key of G

$400.00

Green Ebonite, Key of G, Tapered bore for enhanced projection and superior tuning.

Making ebonite is as much art as science, and colored ebonite is very expensive (but worth it!), and the finishing process is much more labor intensive than wood. The extra cost for materials and labor is reflected in the price of these flutes.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING. This flute is not covered by my normal return policy. This is a very large flute and at least half of the players who try it cannot reach the finger holes comfortably. I will provide you detailed information to help you determine if you can play it, but once it is determined that you can reach the flute I will only consider a return on a case-by-case basis. I’m sorry to be so strict about this, but this has been a problem in the past and has obliged me to alter my policy. I get a lot of requests for this flute, but be forewarned that it is a stretch, even for tall players.
