This bamboo flute is made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo with six finger holes. A professional bansuri player, if given a bad or incorrectly pitched flute will still be able to know the differences and is capable of making adjustments in flute playing angles thus compensating for the pitch error of that bansuri. However, a beginner needs a perfectly crafted and well tuned bansuri to do proper hand placement, tone reflection and blowing adjustments. Many beginners face a lot of trouble handling an inferior quality bansuri during their initial months of bansuri learning. A good bansuri will change this and will increase the speed of initial learning.
