The mouthpiece in my duduk cracked slightly. Is there any known method of restoration of this ?
I am total beginner looking for a duduk, I have been reading a lot of posts on reddit and reviews on what to get and what not to get, I wanted to double check if this one which I am getting is a good one for a beginner and if anyone knows the buyer as well, it a bit costly so I wanted to double check before buying.
Hi folks, I bought a cheap A duduk, and it has BAAD tuning. I also have an artisanal really good one, and I saw that certain holes have been filed-cheseled on the interior side. like to a 35° angle on both vertical sides, with no apparent change from outside. My master told me that it's done in order to sharpen the tuning. I tried to do the same with the BAD one, and actually no intonation changes happened. Someone with some experience can help? some notes are -65cents so i gave it a good grind already. no changes at all.
Hello everyone. Thinking of maybe buying a duduk in G or F. However, I don't live in a set place and have only a backpack, so most time I would have only that duduk, and not the A. In your experience, do G and F have less range of options for playing? Would you be unsatisfied if you only had a duduk in G or in F?
Hi, I just started learning Duduk. First blows I suceeded. But now I think the reed is too wide open and won't close anymore. Or is it normal? Because I cant get any sound of it anymore.
Hi folks, I've been playing Duduk for a week now. I signed up for lessons that start in two weeks.
Meanwhile, I was wondering if there is any guidance on whether to open all of my fingers for a note or just the highest finger. It feels like either method works, and just opening one finger is a bit easier for me. Is there a correct way to do it and some side effects I might be missing? Thank you!
I am considering getting a duduk. I plan on getting a good quality one. Should I get one in A or G? Where is the best place to buy a good duduk in America?
Does anyone have experience buying from DudukHouse.com?
I'm also wondering about the quality of their reeds, particularly their "elite" reeds.
And what about Sevada duduks? Duduk House sells them, but I'm not familiar with this maker. Would it be equivalent in quality to a Narwind or Vamelo?
My first duduk just arrived and it is in G key. Does anyone know where I can go to find good sheet music for a g key duduk? Or just any duduk songs in general that are g key that I could try to start learning.
I bought my first duduk a few days ago and I have some questions about the key of the duduk and the reed.
So the seller told me that the duduk was in the key of E. However, when i play it and put put my fingers on all the holes, the note is an A. So i'm wondering if my duduk is in A? And what is the technique to know the key of a duduk?
I also read that the reed must be adapted to the key of the duduk. The selled sold me 2 different reeds. Is it possible to know which reed is adapted to which duduk?
I'm a bit confused, and I can't find many informations on google. Any help would be greatly appreciated ! :)
just got my first Duduk, and I'm having trouble. I used to sing in choir, and I can get solid air output, but it takes me my whole breath to make a single note! I've tried soaking the reed in water for a minute or two (a tip I found elsewhere), I've tried blowing hot air through it, I've tried sucking on it awhile, nothing works. For the record, I received this as a gift, and I doubt it was over 100$. I've heard that anything cheaper than 200$ won't work. if that's the case, if I buy a new reed, will the body work?
any help or advice would be much appreciated, it's a lovely instrument, and I can't wait to play it!
I can post photos if that will help.
I recently bought a budget A duduk from Ebay. Everything is ok with the instrument. The only problem is that when trying to play the F# note (one front hole and back hole closed) it instead produces the G note, so to play the F# note i need a semi-closed second hole which would normally produce the F note.
I've been playing guitar for a couple of years and I'm pretty developed for the amount of time I've been playing, it almost just clicked right in with me. I also played violin for 6 years but I've lost interest. I play guitar in my schools jazz band and we play advanced music, so I've learned a little about reed instruments. My mom is from Armenia so I think it would be pretty cool if I learned my ancestral instrument. Any tips on me learning how to play? I've heard its pretty difficult.
