Looking for Oud in Leeds


Hi all,

I live in Leeds, UK and want to buy an Oud. I am beginner and have no idea how to choose or from where to buy. Anyway, while surfing the net I found this one:

Dr. M Mussa Ouds


Salam Ahmed,

You can check Dr. M Mussa, he is a well known oud lutheir and based in Barnsley which is not far from where you're.
Dr Mussa was part of EMS (Early Music Shop) and some of the ouds sold there are his, check the link below for his contact details
good luck, you can search these forums for Dr Mussa ouds sold to forum members and see feedback posted in regards to the quality of his ouds.

Dr. M Mussa Ouds




Best Regards

Awad

Ahmed, there might be an oud in London available: I have already talked about it with another guy here on the forum who was looking for an oud in Europe, so I will copy what I wrote him verbatim. Actually it's the secound oud I bought from the guy who's selling, several months ago I bought another Fathy from him which really is a work of art. But please read what I wrote elsewhere on this forum:
"I have a tip for you: about three weeks ago I bought an oud from a guy in London: a Fathy Amin floating bridge which is a beauty. Really wonderful, and I paid 350 for it (less than 500 Euros). He had an almost identical one, and this one too was a wonder to behold: I couldn't make my mind up as to which one to buy, and I spent about four hours playing from one oud to the other. Eventually I picked the one which has a slightly lower action and it's more suitable to my small fingers. The other one has an infinitesimally higher action, but it's still very comfortable to play and it's really loud. You might want to check it out, if he still has it I think it would be a brilliant deal. Fathy Amin is one of the two reputable luthiers left in Egypt (the other is Maurice Shehata), loads of established oudists play it (from Farid Al-Atrache to Ahmed Fathy to Abbadi Al-Johar, etc. etc.) and the feedback from people is generally very positive. The guy who has the oud is not really into sending it around, but maybe you can work something out with him, if you contact him. Here's the thread:

Good luck!
