A selection of accessories that will make your Oud playing experience more enjoyable while keeping your instrument in perfect condition. Protecting and maintaining your Oud is imperative for preserving its optimum level of performance.
Oud is a musical instrument of Lute family and is considered as the King Of Instruments. The Turkish Ouds are well known for their master craftsmanship as well as healing sounds. The Turkish Oud is the largest size oud with decorated, covered holes. The covered holes and large body allow more sound to produce within the oud and this is what creates the soft, deep, healing sounds of the Turkish Oud. A fretless instrument that allows the creation of any intervals or microtones particularly to Middle Eastern, Turkish, Greek and North African music. The shape is a striped bowl pattern, a result of bending the thin staves of wood over a mold. Similar to other string instruments, the oud’s strings are spirally reinforced in the way that they are wound extremely tightly and then attached so as to give it its unique sound.
When you buy an oud, it will be molded in your hands and you will be able to create an authentic sound of your own.
