                              Anatomy of the reed

                                   Arthur Grigoryan

Each musician or beginner, who is going to learn to play on armenian duduk, first of all must study the reed, but more exactly, to learn from what parts the reed consists.

This will relieve the most further study of the material, where the names of these details are often mentioned during the process.for example " move the bridle to the cap " or "put the cap on its place" and so on...

From this small article you will learn from what parts the reed consists  , for what they are used and what role they play.

So,  the reed includes the following details: body, cap, bridle, thread and leather bit.

And now let's take all these details under microscope...

1. Body - on which all the details are put.

2. Bridle -it helps to adjust duduk (regulator of the sound)

3. Cap -it tightly closes the mouth of the reed and protects from casual blow.

4. Leather pieces -they close the schisms and allow the reed  to vibrate easily.

5. Thread -it helps the reed to sit on its place on  the duduk tightly and comfortably

Please, study the photo attentively,everything is shown on the photo and try to remember the name of these details Arthur Grigoryan   

                                   

A Note to International Customers:

     First I want to say that when we receive an order, it is shipped promptly within 1-3 days. Once the order is brought to the post office and shipped, it is out of our hands. Delivery outside of the CANADA can take anywhere from 1 week all the way up until 12 weeks (Typical though is one to four weeks).
     There are numerous reasons for the delay. Typically, packages are delayed in customs, first in the CANADA and then in overseas customs. We cannot control the time packages are in customs.
     If you contact us to see where your item is, and we tell you it has been shipped, that is all we can do. On small packages, we do not use delivery confirmation because of the high cost. The cost to use confirmation overseas will far exceed the price of the item purchased. We have chosen to do business with our international friends. However, we ask for your patience. Too often we get emails asking where my item is when it has not even been a week or two.
     Charge for delivery confirmation which will add considerably to the cost.
Please be patient.
     Note, it is the responsibility of the buyer to pay all and any custom fees. We do not know how much these fees are. You will have to inquiry within your own country.

Thank you
