Opinion of Dupatan Dupatanche about:
Dear Vladiswar Nadishana,

Thank you for the good vibrations from Russia: the Rav Vast 2 has arrived in good order and quite ahead of schedule so it was a nice surprise when coming home yesterday as I had not expected it yet. I am currently experimenting with it and it sounds awesome! I would also like to express my gratitude to Andrey Remyannikov.
In the mean time, I have been enjoying numerous clips and performances on YouTube on Handpans, Rav drums and other exotic instruments. Especially, I enjoyed listening to your performances (solo and ensembles): I especially like Khubananukh, Particles and Shukhur. It has really changed my perception of what is possible with acoustic instruments and it opened a new world of sound.

большое спасибо; or Hartelijk bedankt as we say in The Netherlands.

The quray is an open end blown flute and most popular traditional musical instrument of the Bashkir people. This particular qurai is made by master Shugayupov, who considered as the best maker for this instrument. He made many improvements of this traditional instrument and he's first who started to tune qurai with tuner. Before that the holes on qurai were made by measuring with fingers (The length is found by measuring 8-10 times the width of a palm encompassing the stem of a plant.. The first hole must be done at four fingers distance from the top of the plant, the next three holes at two fingers distance from each other, the fifth at the back at three fingers distance from the fourth hole. from wikipedia). The diapason of a quray consists of three octaves. The quray is used as a solo as well as an ensemble instrument. Traditionally qurai flute is named after the qurai plant (Pleurospermum uralense), from which it was made traditionally. Now, a quray can be made from veneer. It is more stable and its sound is similar to the natural quray's sound.
