The mouthpiece (Ghamish) is created from a reed which in a very long process of flattening on the sides into a double reed (ideal distance approx. 1.5 mm) and can be tightened or loosened by means of a wooden clamp. This allows a minimal correction of the pitch range of 1/4 of a note. The duduk reeds are between 7.5 and 11 cm. long and up to about 3 cm wide. The reeds are available in different strengths (light, medium and heavy). A wooden cap is part of the mouthpiece, which can be placed on the upper end of the Ghamish, in order to protect the reeds from damage.

Tsiranapogh is a national pride, value, which has become a card of the country and the people.
