Turkish Oud Strings
Turkish ouds have a bright, nice sound due to their tense Turkish oud strings and thin soundboards. This timbre differs the Turkish oud from the Arabic oud. Turkish ouds are kinds of ouds employed in Turkey and Greece. Turkish oud, like other types of oud, is fretless, and it is played with a single pick. The contemporary Turkish oud is a six-course oud: it has five pairs and an additional sixth, bass string. This extra Turkish oud string enables the instrument to generate a wider range of pitches. It also increases the ease of playing by enabling the performer to wander through three octaves. Turkish ouds have large soundboxes made of a series of ribs. The soundbox of the oud is also the body which is called a bowl. The materials used in the bowls of the ouds in our store vary. Certainly, they are all made of high-quality woods such as mahogany, maple, and walnut. Their flat front surfaces or the faces are from spruce, which is a lightweight wood that reverberates when struck. As you know, when you grab the oud and pluck the Turkish oud strings, if you hear the vibrations and the sound of the oud inside your chest, it means that you have found a good instrument. Our Turkish ouds’ tuning pegs and fingerboards are constructed from ebony. A good-quality oud is surely handmade and our professional ouds are produced from materials of the best quality.
