From 1988 to 2001, in a span of 13 Years- Subhash realized that there was not a single Bansuri in the market that can totally satisfy him according to his playing technique, blowing, Octave balance and tonal Quality. So Subhash was compelled to think about Flute making first time for his own. His first production was highly appreaciated by his Guru Pt. Amarnath Ji. Pandit Ji encouraged Subhash to make a set of Flutes for his Son and other Students, and this embarked this illustrious journey of this great mind & Sour towards a noble profession of making music instruments like Bamboo Flutes.
