This is seriously great list dude! I was looking for a Turkish Oud and you have just provided the list so thanks so much… I also want to know who do you think is the best Oud marker?  I usually hear a lot of good stuff about Turkish so is that true?

Hi Sam,

You say, "I found this great list of oud makers around the world."

This list of oud makers was copied and pasted verbatim from the Mike's Oud Forums' FAQ's page.

If you are going to post information prepared by others, you could at least give credit to the source.
In this case, to the hard work and careful research of "MatthewW" from Mike's Oud Forums.

Hello Everyone,
I am looking to purchase an Iraqi style Oud and wanted to know what is the best Oud per dollar, meaning best value currently on the market?
