HI All,
I am new to Oud world. Is it possible you can recommend good tone quality Arabic Oud. I am interested to learn OUD.
Thanks

Dear Raj,

Welcome to the forums. You will need to be more specific about your requirements and your budget.
As a person "interested to learn oud" it is unlikely you will be prepared to pay several thousands of dollars for a top of the range instrument. And tone quality is a subjective thing. Every oud player has his or her own idea of what represents good tone quality.

So how about you say how much money you are prepared to pay and then some of the other forum members can tell you what is available at your budget level and how good they think the tone quality will be for the ouds they recommend for you.

I think you can easily find a good oud within your budget .. Look at the previous adverts here, I'm sure there would be plenty of nice ones .. Ask to see videos and more pictures if needed ..

I think you are in the right place!

Good luck!




Onwards and upwards

There is a nice Michael Moussa Arabic oud for sale in Mill Valley. I'm not sure of the price but I'm pretty sure it's less than $700.

Not promoting Mike's Maurice oud shop, but I think you should check it out. You are in California as well so get in touch with Mike. The apprentice ouds are about $500. I haven't bought anything from him but the store has a significant number of ouds and I'm pretty sure you'd find something good that you like.
