Longa Riad on my Alý Nisadir oud!


Hello everybody,
I wanted to introduce you a nice oud I bought several years ago from ALý Nisadir in Istanbul. It's a Mounir banshir floating bridge model.
SO far I have been playing this oud in C arabic tuning, in F iraqi tuning, and now with turkish strings and turkish tuning. It always sounds great!
It's extremely easy to play, and it never gets out of tune. And last but not least, It was incredibly cheap !
So, here it is:

Nice playing and nice oud.
I didn't know that Nisadir produces floating bridge ouds.
Is the soundboard polished??

Nice playing Daniele, molto bravo! but i didn't like the sound of the Oud!
It doesn't sounds Oud.
I started to practice on this tune since 2 weeks but I didn't succeed to go faster than Daniele;)

Thank you guys! Your support is very important to me!
Antoine, oud's sound is a matter of taste, but I admit that this one may sound "strange". It's an iraqi oud, built by a turkish maker, and set with turkish strings in D :)
Dear Alfaraby, the main reason why I am looking for another oud is the size: 58,50 cm is too short for me. I noticed that I feel more comfortable on bigger size ouds. Then, I don't really like the design, and I am quite concerned about design. After all I am italian :)
As far as I can understand, the oud is not polished.
I make clear that this oud is not an Alý Nisadir top quality oud; actually it was very cheap (less than 500 euro as far as I remember, something like 8 years ago). I din't ask Master Nisadir to make it for me. It was ready to sell, and I picked it up from his workshop. The reason why I chose this ones and no others, it's that I am not into turkish ouds, and even thought Nisadir ouds were very good and beatiful, action was extremely low for my taste; all his ouds were "buzzing" (it seem that many turkish players like "buzzing ouds"). This one was also buzzing, but since it's a floating bridge, I had the chanche to ask him to make the brige a little bit higher: he did it in a few minutes.
