Bamboo Flutes

Post by RuneTheChookcha » Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:45 pm

Selling 5 bamboo flutes, professional grade, imported material, electronic tuning. All good for playing as an Indian Bansuri. Either of the two smaller ones can also be used as an Irish flute in the key of "D". A detailed description for the first one will follow in the next post. If there is any interest, will post specs for the remaining ones.

Personal delivery: Valparaiso and Vina del Mar
Would prefer not to use postal mail (due to the risk of possible damage, or unsuitability for the prospect player).

Bansuri "G-natural"

A right-handed, 7-hole, side-blown bamboo flute. Straight hole alignment. The flute has an elliptical bore (with the narrow side of the ellipse facing up), and a considerable upward bend. This results in a very good and easy performance in the higher octave.
