Testimonials from celebrated performers:
"Thank you Vik and Ararat Music for finally giving us a source for consistently high-quality Armenian wind instruments. The sound of each of the instruments I recently got from you ( the Duduk and Ghamish, Shvi, and Blouls) is top notch. I am especially enjoying the chromatic Blouls!"
- Chris Bleth
"These are THE most reliable, professionally supervised, consistent, & beautifully crafted duduks, & ghamishes I've ever tried...
I just played them in several heart-wrenching scenes of Steven Spielberg's film ‘Munich', written by the greatest film music composer alive, Sir John Williams... they both LOVED the duduk sound! I also used it in the film 'Syriana'--among many, many others-- & in concert w/the greatest duduk master alive, and my teacher, maestro Djivan Gasparian. I played them in tour w/Yanni, recordings w/Sir Paul McCartney, & Anoushka Shankar, in live performances like the "Concert For George", and "The Symphony of The Passion of The Christ"... Actually, I'm using them in every project I participate... They are simply THE BEST! "
