Tortoise shell ouds?
« on: April 14, 2015, 04:31:22 AM »
Are tortoise shell ouds illegal to commercialize in Europe? I don't want one for myself, I'm just curious because it seems like tortoise shams or pickguards are greatly appreciated by some players.


:) :P :D

Yes, it's illegal to sell them in some countries, of course! I think Turkey allows it though, I'm almost sure of it, but you won't be able to find any tortoise ouds in most European countries.

I am 100% positive they are illegal in the US. Maybe even Europe, I know that tortoiseshell is forbidden on eBay (you can check, it really is!). However, there are quite a few items you can buy that resemble real tortoiseshell, those are OK (I think).
Doumbeks rock!
