The New Oud I just Bought. Good Oud ?
« on: October 14, 2015, 05:32:48 AM »
This is the oud i bought, it was $400 new from Amazon, with soft cover. I'm a beginner, so don't need something too expensive yet. Do you think the sound quality will be good on something like this? This is the description the gave me for it:

*The OUD4 is approximately 32 inches long, 14.5 wide, and 9 deep.
*The soundboard is a light colored wood that is left un-finished for better sound quality.
*The Sound-holes are lace-like. Around each sound hole on the soundboard are faux nacre mosaics. There is a dark decorated plate     
  under the strings that protects the soundboard while the instrument is being played.
*The body and neck are stave construction with straight line inlays between the staves.
*There are eleven strings. The first course, of two strings, is nylon. The next three courses of two strings each are nylon wound. The
  last course of two strings and the final low string are nylon wound with copper.

I appreciate your help.
