Title: What to look for when buying an Oud?
Post by: Rize on May 03, 2015, 11:30:39 PM
I'm a newbie so I still don't know much about the instrument. My music teacher warned me about buying by myself. He said I need to have a specialist with me in order to determine the quality of the Oud in general, but he didn't dive into specifics.

So, I'm hoping there are experts here who can help me. What exactly do I need to test/look for when buying an Oud.

Just like you even I am a beginner only, so I donít know what is the best Oud to purchase, but I feel that here you will find the best advice and the best Oud, but one thing I must say that always purchase it from an experience guy, so you can get valuable tips.

I donít have any experience in purchasing these so thatís why I mostly take my friend who is very experience with me if I ever need to purchase anything. At the moment I donít have Oud but I do have Darbuka which I purchased with my friends guide.
