From the listed flutes in this topic, this one is still available:
I can sell it for 20 mil to anyone visiting Vina-Valpo area.
With respect to the other types, please note that the Indian Bansuri "G-natural", as posted with specs in the second post, is almost identical to the Irish (wooden or maybe bamboo) flute in D. Anyone familiar with Western Classic flute, or any sort of traverse one, can play it with almost no problems. One has to train the proper fingering, and the specific way the playing holes are closed by Indian musicians.
In the past I made flutes from local cane, about 50 of them sold, but it has nodes, and so to tune the flute in both octaves was a nightmare. I have one remaining bass flute made from cane (harvested between Con Con and Vina del Mar).
