Professional quality shvi in key of D by Ararat Music. The Shvi is known as the Armenian Whistle. A flute-type instrument, the Shvi can produce one and a half to two octaves of the chromatic scale. The lower octave is attained by blowing normally into the mouthpiece; the upper octave is attained by blowing harder. The lower octave has a soft, recorder-like tone; the upper octave has a powerful birdlike shrillness, similar to a piccolo or flute. The Shvi is famous for its ability to mimic bird calls. Made of apricot trees from the mountains and highlands of Armenia. Has a libium mouthpiece, similar to the western recorder. Unlike the Duduk and Zurna, there is no reed because the whistle-like mouthpiece is part of the Shvi itself. The shvi is about 12 inches long, and is of made of two pieces; this permits fine tuning. The Shvi is a chromatic wind instrument which requires half holing. Guaranteed for 1 year against defects in materials and workmanship.
