I'd like to warn people about Nasef & Ragy kanun maker in Egypt.

I put in an order with Nasef & Ragy for $700 that included 2 kanun cases, skins, strings, and rosettes via Western Union. As soon as he got the money, he blocked me on Instagram and never shipped me the items. Prior to being blocked he was very friendly and cordial. We didn't have any issues at all. He wont respond to any messages via facebook or whatsapp.

I'd be very careful when dealing with this individual.

John, this is an awful thing to hear. It seems that their page on Facebook is down as well.

I hope that there is a genuine cause for not answering you and you get your money/kanuns as soon as possible.

My thoughts with you bro




Onwards and upwards

They seem to have an active Arabic page on facebook at:

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009786379246

and a personal blog at:

https://www.facebook.com/%D8%B5%D9%86%D8%A7%D8%B9%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84...

Try to contact them through those pages. Hopefully you'll be able to get what you've paid for or at least your money back.

Hope this helps and all the best.

There is no genuine cause other than he could get away with it as I sent the money on trust never having done business with him. A friend tried to contact him about my case to no avail.

Welcome Mctxp,

I hope you are doing well.

Actually I highly recommend John Vergara, a part from building very fine ouds, he also builds qanouns of rare quality, I have personally tried one of his, (I just play a little bit) but i really loved it, balanced sound, easy playability, and wonderful craftmanship and carpentry.

You can contact him at http://www.johnvergaramusic.com

Thanks for recommendations. John's Kanun are too expensive. $7000. They are around $1000 to $2000 from other countries.

Make an offer, kanun with 8 mandels, lifetime warranty to original owner against workmanship and defects. The good kanuns are more than $2000 in other countries, right?
