New oud - feedback requested!!


Hello Oud Friends,

My friend here in Seattle, WA is a luthier specializing in the Persian Kemenche , heís built a few ouds over the past couple of years, i want to share his latest creation with the forum and get some feedback on the sound. We strung it up this morning and i really love the sound, still making some adjustments but i would appreciate some feedback from my fellow oud players

This a 61 cm scale and has a red cedar top

Hamed,

The Oud looks beautiful! I also love the sound. It seems to have a very nice deep Arabic sound. I am in Portland, l would like to know more about this local luthier. Does he custom build Ouds only or does he have some already built Ouds for sale?

Congratulations on your new instrument!

Edward

Hello, thanks for checking it out and giving feedback.
This was built by Mehrdad Azadi, we actually met thanks to this forum ( thanks Mike, Samir, and Greg!)

This oud does not belong to me but iím testing it out for a few days and haven't been able to put it down. You may contact Mehrdad directly through his website below if you like, he has a few ouds that heís built and has experimented with different sizes / styles but his true passion lies with these larger arabic ouds.

This oud is actually not finished yet, but iíll post some photos when itís complete as the workmanship is very good

Here is the website:

Persianlutherie.com

Thanks again!

Sounds like a great Oud. It's tuned quite low though. I'd like to hear what it sounds like higher too. I also prefer larger Ouds.
