Shuddh Madhyam Bansuris, have a Total of 9 Holes. [ 1 Blow Hole plus 8 Tone Holes ].
Shuddh Madhyam Bansuris, allows you to go down by a Half Note lower than the 7- Hole Bansuri.: Meaning you can go down to Shuddh Madhyam [ Ma ] in the lowest octave in the same position, you can also play Shuddh Madhyam by turning the bansuri inwards [ towards you ].
In the lower octave of seventh hole flute, it goes only till pancham. But, many flutists also play Tivra Madhyam by lowering down neck. But in eight hole flute, the seventh hole is used for tivra ma by knee and for Shuddh Madhyam, we use the lowering down of neck.
Difficult meend [ glide ] between 'Ma' and 'Pa' is achievable.
This Bansuri has 6 tone holes to be played with fingers, 7th hole with little finger [ in flutes up to A Bass ] or knee [ in case of larger flutes ] and the 8th hole is played with knee.
This Flute is a little longer and does demand any additional stretch on the fingers as the extra length adds up below the 6th finger hole.
