Abdo Nahat's Replica by Ahmad Abd-Aljaleel – Kuwait


Our fellow forum member Ahmad Abdel Al Jaleel from Kuwait, has decided 15 months ago to make a replica of a great designed oud of the immortal luthier Abdo Nahat, for his/our friend Ahmad Al Salhi, the founder & moderator of "Zeryab Musical Forum".
He started from selecting suitable walnut species and came across a rare piece of figured walnut which made that original design, as shown in the photos. All the ornaments and the special designs were hand-made by the luthier. No machinery, not even one, was involved !
Date started July 7, 2011. Date finished Oct 12, 2012 !

A medium size booklet could be written about this unique work of art, but better a photo than a thousand words. Therefore, here are the photos telling us the story of two friends who shares the same passion for ouds, though Al Salhi is an accomplished violinist rather than oudist.

To be continued ..

Enjoy

Yours indeed
Alfaraby

I've never heard of this luthier before. Coming out with stuff like this make it more surprising!

Does he have a website?

An amazing work of art, I love the figured walnut choice as it gave it a special character.
I've seen many of Usta Ahmed's work on FB, he is also a kind gentleman

FINAL PHOTOS


Here you go, the finished soundboard & more.
As to the sound file, well Alsalhy is in UK, while the oud is still @ the luthier's workshop waiting for a professional player to drop in and play it.

Yours indeed
