 Product Description

Egyptian oud with classic tear drop shape and bowl bottom. The oud is one of the most popular instruments in Arabic music and known for producing a powerful, resonating sound. This model features a dazzling design with an Arabic motif on pick guard and a colorful mother of pearl pattern around edge of 3 sound holes. It has a maple body and neck with a beautiful shiny finish.

Please note: The decorations can vary from those photographed.

Soundboard: The sound board is spruce and has 3 round sound holes with a colorful mother of pearl pattern around edge. Includes a pick guard at bottom that has a dazzling design with an Arabic motif and is used to prevent players from scratching the sound board. There are 12 ebony pegs and 6 courses of strings, however, the maker of this oud only installs 11 strings. It is very popular in Cairo to play with only 11 strings; only one on the bass or 6th course. Pegs have a small decorative inlay in middle.

Note: Whether you purchase an instrument on-line or from a physical store locally, it is recommended that you change the strings on your new instrument as soon as you receive it. The strings of an instrument both in a store or shipped to you are exposed to air and different environments prior to you receiving it. During this time the strings WILL oxidize, decreasing it's life expectancy and reducing the quality of it's sound. On occasion instruments may even arrive with a broken string, therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings as soon as it arrives. Learning to change strings should be the first lesson learned when embarking on the journey of playing a new instrument.
