Le duduk, hautbois arménien, est un instrument à vent à anche double, au timbre chaud et doux, légèrement nasal. Il appartient à la famille des aérophones qui comprend également le balaban, joué en Azerbaïdjan et en Iran, le duduki, très répandu en Géorgie et le nay turc. Le bois tendre de l'abricotier offre le matériau idéal pour creuser le corps de l'instrument. L'anche, appelée ghamish ou yegheg, est faite d'une plante locale qui pousse sur les rives de l'Arax.
