Hi there,

I am really curious about the sound that the crystal duduk makes.
http://www.duduk.com/Arm-music-ins/Duduk/R...istalDuduk.html

I was wondering if you can post an example of what it sounds like?

Kind regards,

Thanks Moses, I really appreciate it.

I must add that it looks very beautiful, and obviously was created with much care and love.

Hi Moses,

I am curious, does the Crystal duduk require a special reed to play it?

If so, how is it different from a normal duduk reed?

Crystal duduk require a special reed - yes the hole on the end of the Redd most be much larger - since the inside diameter of the duduk is much larger then our traditional duduk's dimensions

A truely Armenian professional reed can even make a crystal duduk
sing with a mournful passion that is ethereal and timeless.
Viva Armenia. Bravo!

to bad the camera did not record the fine sound of the crystal - i could not find any options to set / the sound is bit muffled / specially after i had to convert from windows media file to AVI to edit the video - then back to Windows media file again

Thanks for your time Moses, and please also extend my thanks to Albert Vardanyan.

It is certainly a beautiful instrument, that deserves to be played and enjoyed.

I am sure that you do not plan to part with it anytime soon? And the four new reeds should give you a good excuse to play it more often.

Kind regards,

For me this is a crystal duduk...

Armenian Soul

I like this music because it combines the ancient sound of the duduk with modern music.

BTW, it is a duduk is A, isnīt it? I have doubts if it is a bass one.

Hi Adianez,

That piece is very nice, where is it from?

I think you misunderstood what we meant by a crystal duduk though.
If you look at the youtube link posted above you will not that the duduk that is being played is actually made from glass. (Instead of being made from the traditional apricot wood).

Best,

Ohhhh I sorry Ben! laugh.gif
I thought it was a metafore...silly me. I did no saw the video but I should.

That is a music that I have found in the net. I think the author used a known music and add the sound of the duduk.
The result is great...in my opinion.
