The hard elite reeds are the highest grade that Dudukhouse offers, as they have exhibited exceptional sound qualities during testing.
Each reed possesses qualities so unique that we give them their own individual names.
They are concert-quality reeds that can give you the opportunity to produce amazing sounds as they mature. These reeds are an investment for a professional duduk player and can last years with proper care.
Each reed comes individually packaged with its own authenticity certificate.
Reeds are made from natural material and are extremely sensitive to temperature and humidity changes.
It is normal for reeds to behave inconsistently when you move to another location. For example, the reeds play well in your home but may behave differently when you go to perform at another location.
All reed features have been tested in Toronto, Ontario where the average annual humidity levels are around 81.0%.
The majority of medium and hard reeds tend to improve as you play them, although it is not always guaranteed (some will actually might play worse - so there is no foolproof formula for reeds).
These reeds might not work with non-professional instruments purchased from Amazon or Etsy.
Dudukhouse strives to provide an accurate description of our reeds, based on our professional judgment and experience. However, when arriving at your location the reeds may have different sound qualities due to the humidity and temperature differences. As an organic product reeds can be influenced by these factors. At this time, there is no known method to ensure reed quality consistency around the world to prevent different environments from affecting the reeds.
With this being considered, Dudukhouse guaranteesthat all reeds have been thoroughly tested by an experienced duduk musician in our Toronto location. All reeds are tested, packed, and sent with care, love, and respect for our customers and fellow musicians.
