Professional Shvi in the key of (D) Hand crafted from Apricot wood, every Shvi has Master Logo.

In the family of our national instruments the “shvi” occupies a proud place. Its sounds are the closest to our hearts. The shvi is up to 12 inches in length It has 8 holes on the front, 7 of which are used while playing, and 1 thumbhole. One octave is obtained by blowing normally into the shvi and a second octave is attained by blowing with slightly more force. The lower octave has a timbre similar to a recorder whereas the higher octave sounds similar to a piccolo or flute. there is no reed because the whistle-like mouthpiece is part of the shvi itself and is made of apricot wood and has large technical possibilities: from songs and music tunes to concert works. The “shvi” is used not only in Armenian, but also in Moldavian, Romanian, Hungarian, German, and English folk and classical songs. Today a few kinds of the “shvi” are known.
