Arabic Tuning on Turkish oud.
« on: October 30, 2015, 07:24:35 PM »
Hello all,

I have bought a Turkish oud. Very well made instruments. However I'm finding that the strings have very low tension as a result of the tuned down to Arabic scale. How do I solve this problem? is there a specific type of strings that I should be looking for? this is causing all the strings to buzz and this is natural if the tension is low.

I appreciate you answers. thanks all.  8)
