Title: Would you buy a Turkish oud or an Arabic one?
Post by: Ron99 on April 03, 2015, 05:45:37 AM
I'm looking for pros and cons (if there are any...!) regarding which oud should I choose to buy.
What do you think? Which do you personally prefer and why? Turkish oud or Arabic oud?

I really don't have a preference right now, but if I chose a Turkish oud, would I be able to tune it like an Arabic one? Or vice versa?

Oh, well... the thing with these two different types of oud is, you can tune a Turkish oud down, but you can't tune the Arabic oud up. So, I guess the Turkish oud would be a good choice, if you plan on tuning it in different ways.
