4) The Indian Bansuri: Played in India, this is a medium voiced 16 inch major scale that will play in G Major, A minor, E minor and C pentatonic. In India this would be called a C Bansuri. In the New World it would be called a G major flute. I also call it the Brazilian Major because it was in Brazil where I began to make them in 1972. The major scale is covered in the DVD as well as the free tutorial on the Brazilian major webpage. Usually sold for $90.

9) Flute Back Pack: Made by our friends in Nicaragua as a fund raiser. The back pack has 5 flute pockets and a main area to put more in the main pouch. It also has an adjustable strap. Sometimes the colors of the back pack will vary according to the material they are able to secure. Usually sold for $35.
Please keep in mind, as this is a fund raiser, the Flute Set will not be able to be returned.
And if you are ordering outside the USA shipping will cost $65 and there will be some customs fees to pay. Shipping in the USA is only $10.
