Hi! Yep. I got screwed. Wanted a duduk since a whole year so bad but couldn't really afford it because i'm an irresponsible bastard with money.
But i didn't have to worry, hell on ebay you got plenty for almost nothing!
But it looks like i've buy somehitng almost inutilisable. I have experience in music but not in Duduk. So I know that what i,ve buy is cheap.
It seems to me that it's good for beginning! Altough i should have wait for more money to come. (not to worry i'll buy a real one in 6 month or so)
BUt the main problem are the reed. HOrrible. They are horrible. Absolutely untunable, almost unplayable. Out of five i've got one that work and that's all.
The duduk himself seems at least in tune with himself. Wich is good if i want to make some recording and play in band.
So my question. If i buy good quality reed, what are my chance of improving my mistake?
Any other commentary will be accepted with pleasure.
Where can i get one of those? On duduk.com?
My reed has arrived! I just need to pick it up @ my post office,
since my wife did not hear the call bell and I just got "the slip"
with a return address: "DUDUK.com".
Thank you Moses! (Now that was fast delivery!)

Thank you, thank you Moses! Yes, my pro reed is on top of my desk,
after I carefully removed it from the neatly wrapped (double bubble wrap) package. I have never seeing or smell or touch such a work of craftmanship! It is far superior to the ones I have now from "master" Simonian, he-he-they are souvenirs indeed! On the other hand, this reed is so beauttiful! I admired the smoothness and even texture of the reed itself, and the briddle slides in and out very easy, and it is very easy to place and remove the cap, it does not feel "forced" onto it.
I am coming off my skin, since I "can't wait" to get off work and start playing this pro reed- following the helpful tips of Moses- and I appreciate that very much!
(I should have call in sick...just joking!)
Regards, El Catalan
