I'm with you, an oud like this is art, but it is always sad to me to see a great oud hanging on a wall, unplayed. It may be art, but most of the beauty of an oud is in its sound. For an oud to remain unplayed is a close to a crime, in my humble opinion.

Sevgili Wefra,

Hank

The address in on the Veysel Müzik Evi web site at
http://www.veyselmuzik.com/tr/index.php
The shop is in the Aksaray area in a side street (no. 21 Sefai Efendi Sok. although I think you may also see this as Safi Efendi Sok. ) off the main arterial road Millet Caddesi (this is also known as Turgut Özal Cad. - don't you love Istanbul!). You'll find it on Google Maps if you locate Ataturk Bulvarı and scroll a little to west).
I want to pop into the shop myself in a few weeks time when I will be in Istanbul as I have a nice ud made by Cenziz Sarıkuş (1988) that I would like to find out a bit more about.
cheers
Paul

Hank
I will not get to Istanbul until around the middle of June unfortunately (15th or 16th). Will probably try to get to Veysel Muzik around that time (more likely the 16th or 17th after I have recovered from flight from Australia and fortified myself on boza!). But will have to head out east to Sivas pretty soon after I arrive so I can make my arrangements to get to the Pir Sultan Abdal festival. Will return to Istanbul early July.
I'm curious to see the old instruments Cengiz usta has too. Many years ago Mustafa Yaşar at Istanbul Muzik Evi used to have some old uds as well, but I haven't been there for some time, so not sure if this is still the case.
cheers
Paul

The oud looks amazing and in perfect condition- I'm sure the sound is outstanding- Manol is the most OUD i have ever played.

Dear Omazuz,

Unfortunately, this instrument was sold several years ago. It is a very old string.:(

Best,
Hank

THIS INSTRUMENT IS NOW BEING OFFERED FOR SALE




I purchased this amazing instrument from Hank Levin back in 2005.

It remains the most beautiful-sounding oud that I have ever heard.

It has been carefully stored the entire time that I have owned it, and I know that it has been played less than 12 hours in that entire time--I have over 40 ouds, and despite being blown away by the sound of this instrument, I never allowed it to be played much. I always have considered it a very special, soulful instrument that should be cherished.

IT IS WITH SOME REGRET THAT I NOW OFFER THIS INSTRUMENT FOR SALE, back at the original asking price from 2005--$9995.

I will ship it is a hard case. Shipping and insurance anywhere in the United States will be free.

If you are interested in the oud and are from outside of the US, please contact me first so we can figure out a shipping and insurance price (I am afraid it will be rather high, unfortunately).

This is an elegant instrument.

Absolutely no work has been done on it since I acquired it from Hank.

I really would like for this oud to go to a good home. That's why I am first offering it here, rather than on ebay or somewhere else. It is a special instrument.

I've been a member of this forum since 2003.

If interested, please contact me at this email address:

The photos that Hank posted back in 2005 of this oud still reflect the condition of this oud today. It has been played very very minimally, and no further work has been done.
But, here are a couple of newer photos of it.

I've been out of town (and country) for months, but will be returning in a few days. The oud is still for sale.

Does the bridge original?

Yes, I think the bridge is original. These ouds at that time used single treble strings (because it was so hard to match two treble gut strings), and double bass strings. When nylon strings became available and thin treble strings could be easily matched, the bridges were drilled to accept two trebles, only one bass string (usually) was now used (leaving an empty hole in the bass side of the bridge, and the nut was re-made to accept two trebles and one bass. This bridge may reflect that conversion. But yes, it's original.

I would like to make a comment about this instrument. It was left with me to sell by Ustad Necati Çelik, my friend and teacher who had brought it from Istanbul. During the short time that I had it and played it, I had the most interesting experience---melodies would come to me that I had never heard. It was as though a being was associated with this oud that was trying to "say" something, and was "showing" things to me much like a music teacher would. It's a very magic instrument. I wish I could afford to have it again.

I just realised that it is an old thread... but anyway, that is/was beautiful instrument, thanks for the photos.
if you want to listen to the sound of a Manol oud, I recommend to listen to the new cd of Ara Dinkjian "Conversations with Manol", played on a (I think) 1900 Manol.
