Its soundboard is made out of spruce wood and has three round shaped sound holes, one larger one in the center and two smaller ones below on the sides. There is also a sheesham pick guard at bottom to help prevent scratching sound board when playing. The decorations can vary from those photographed. This oud contains a great selection of woods and wonderful craftsmanship. There are multiple tuning options for instrument, but we recommend using the Arabic method: DGADGC.

String Notice

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:



There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
