passed to us from the masters of Armenian duduk we are adding our own research
and techniques to produce our own brand of instruments while maintaining its
traditional integrity of Armenian duduk.
By using a new technology and a five step aging process we
guarantee that the instrument will not require perpetual tuning and it will last
much longer than the others in most any environment.
