About Armenian Duduk
The Duduk is a cylindrical instrument made of apricot wood and in typically 28, 33, or 40 cm in length. It has eight or nine holes and one thumb hole, which provide a range of slightly more than one octave. The double reed, also known as ramish or yegheg in Armenian is typically 9-14 cm in length. A thin flexible wood binding that slides along the length of the reed surrounds it. This binding used for tuning the duduk as it controls the opening/ closing of the reed. The reed itself grows plentifully along the Arax River in Armenia.
The sound of the duduk is warm, soft and has a slightly velvety nasal timbre, characterized lyricism, emotion and expressiveness.
While other countries may use the wood from other fruit and/or nut trees when making their instruments (often plum and walnut in Georgia, for example…), in Armenia, the best wood for making duduks found to be from the apricot tree. It has come to be preferred over the years for its unique ability to resonate a sound that is unique to the Armenian duduk.
All of the other variations of the instrument found in other countries have a very reed-like, strongly nasal sound, whereas the Armenian duduk specifically developed to produce a warm, soft tone, which is closer to a voice than to a reed.
