Re: Playing Indian music on western concert flute?

Bansari flutes are very difficult to play and they all have different tunings . You need to get a teacher for them . I think western flute open hole would work but this isn't easy either both have their challenges

Good Luck

Re: Playing Indian music on western concert flute?

I actually do this on a open flute i have been practicing Ragas for 4 years now and its not easy since most of the music is in C# too . I also play the Bansari Flutes I have one in D and in C# . The slurring and bending of notes is easier on the Bansari flutes .

Re: Should I wait to sell my flute?

The pearl flutes do not have a great resale value so you would not get the full value of it as its a used flute .So now it being over 10,000 for a new one maybe you could sell it for 6500 - 8000 at the most .
