Duduks By -OMO-
Duduk Wood:
Made of quality apricot wood only found in the highland and mountain regions of Armenia.
The aging circles of the tree must be close together and is determined by the frequency of watering.
For professional duduks the trees mid-trunk region is the only part used out of a 25" x 20" log and only produces 1 or 2 duduks. Whereas, Souvenir type from the same log will be used to make up to 25-30 duduks. Duduks are made from almost every kind of wood, but our 2500+ years of experience in handcrafting these instruments has proven the Armenian Apricot is the best wood.

The Professional Duduk's are handcrafted and aged:
Aged for 3 years before the initial preparation
Aged for another 2 years in a moisture controlled environment *1.
Only then will a master make the instrument, tune it and treat the wood with natural oils and salt. For another year the instrument is checked for deformity and tune consistency. The instrument production process is quite extensive and takes up to 6 years.

Duduks made by master Joseph are aged  for  5  years
