I recently bought this full set from this seller.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281612266099

it was hard to trust them but in the end the nays came and are pretty good. They will need oiling though as the ones that came were bone dry.

Hi.

Thank you:)
They look good, are they relatively in tune?
The price must be a mistake LOL.

[US $1.99
Approximately C $2.48]

Yes it is a mistake. Full set was around 400-500. $ I forget exactly.

One nay I think 90-100

Here is a quick video of the dukah.: https://youtu.be/H6TKrSQzNYQ

I am learning still don't be too hard. Also the basement walls are concrete and suck the life out of the sound.

The nay has a really nice tone.
Your playing is very good as well:)

I also found this seller:

Hi.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Egyptian-Professional-Wooden-Woodwind-Set-6-pcs-Ney-Nay-Flute-ALSAID-BAYOMY-/171695305757?

The nay that is broken was by this maker and was really good.

I am asking the seller you showed me for one nay (dukah-C key).

I have good Turkish nay's too, G key, C key and D key's, they are really good but have a different tone.
Is there a difference in the reed/bamboo?
The Turkish ones' are much harder and heavier.

I got one made by Moheb Boules, who is a pro player from California and goes by the name "the-ney" on ebay.

He doesn't have any instruments up right now, but if you message him he may have one to list. I got one in ""C", but he makes them in other keys too.
I'm really happy with mine,

The one Samir has sounds pretty good too, basement notwithstanding.

Hi.

Thanks, I will have a look

I am awaiting a really good dukah nay from this seller that Samir posted.
It was one of his personal nays and was a bit expensive, around 200 US.
Looking forward to it, I will post a pic and soundclip when it arrives.

Hi,
You can buy Professional Arabic Nays (made by Saber Kawala in Egypt) on website https://www.sonsdelorient.com/index.php/wind/nay.html

They are of course professional quality and in tune. (Here is a video of a Bousalek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEFbwQx-Rb0)

Hi.
Thanks:)
I have a good dokah nay now.
It will be good to get other nays in different keys.

The link does not work, sorry.
I am definitely interested in the future.

Hi,

I bought a dukah nay from "Sons de l'Orient" website, the delivery was very quick (the next day !) and packaging was good.

Regarding the ney itself I am a beginner so it's hard to give an accurate report... My impression is overall very positive, the sound is strong and the pitches seem accurate.

However the tuning is rather low (dukah is almost C#) but this may be due to my (self-taught) blowing technique...
