Where is the nest place to buy a ney?
« on: May 11, 2015, 04:13:43 AM »
Hello
I am looking to buy an Arabic ney.
Do you know any online shop who sell them?
I live in Bosnia and i didn't find any of them in my area.

I do hope you can recommend :-\

Thank you very much

Noyer.

Arab Instruments sells them on their website http://www.arabinstruments.com/ney

The trouble is that they only carry 2 different tunings. I've been looking for an Arabic style nay for years, and I wanted to start with a nay in D/dokah/re, but Arab Instruments doesn't seem to carry them yet, unfortunately. (Pssst! If any Arab Instruments staff are reading this, if you get any Arabic style dokah nays in stock soon, I'll order one from you! ;) )

There's a professional nay player in Egypt named Saber Ali (he also goes by the name Saber Kawla) who makes and sells nays. His email address and phone number are listed in the description of his YouTube videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVBFCwzrBDb35jaDXRX_A8A . I've tried emailing him twice, but he hasn't emailed back yet for some reason :/

You can also buy Saber Ali nays from this French website http://www.sonsdelorient.com/index.php/wind/nay.html , and I've been considering it, but the shipping to Canada is a little expensive so I'm waiting for a bit to see if he'll answer my emails in case his shipping and sale prices are lower than that website.

I think you should rather look for online purchase, itís less expensive I have seen many shops and they charge 50% extra to what we could get on Amazon or eBay, but of course you need to look at quality first before deciding which to buy.
