Another Interesting eBay oud


Seems to be of reasonable construction but I don't recognize the maker by any details. Any suggestions? Seller has mis-labeled it so there are fewer viewers than there might otherwise be.

With a scale like that you'll get a powerful Arabic sound

who forebids it? (must be your better half:D)

If the bowl is 50cm deep, who is going to hold it?

Maybe 50cm is width of the bowl, the measurement across the soundboard at its widest. Either way, the question holds: who can hold such an oud? The elbow would be above the earlobe!

Maybe a forum reader got it and we'll be able to hear it someday. In any case I grabbed the Bedrossian (I think it is...) last week so I'm at my oud limit too. I'll post some pictures when it shows up.

Cheers
