^ They're not hard to find, you can easily buy them on  eBay or other websites. They're good though, so if you must choose, choose the he-head, they are much more high quality than other similar products.

Case, yes, I agree. But also, we should take the instruments out 'for a walk' from time to time. I don't play my oud everyday, but I live in a very humid country - Italy... so you know.. keeping it inside the case all the time is not a good idea!

Darbuka Teachers & Lessons / Re: Need lessons for a darbuka!

Oh, what a beauty! You got yourself quite a good instrument, fitz!

If you're a beginner, you could easily find lessons on yourtube. However, if you're looking for something more advanced (which you might anyway, sooner or later), have a look here:, they offer a pretty good deal.

I know there are quite a few finger techniques used to pay the darbuka, can someone explain some of them or at least share a good video with how it's done? I don't even know how many finger techniques are there.. but I know playing the darbuka is all about finger technique.

If you had to choose between buying a copper drum and an aluminium one, which would you choose? Some say that copper darbukas sound better, is that the case?

Doumbek, Darbuka Lovers / Darbuka camps?

Has anyone ever been on one of those drumming camps, where you simply lay the darbuka from morning 'till evening? Are there any available in Europe? I have read about a drumming camp in California but I am in Europe (Italy) so I was wondering if anyone knows any such destinations.

I didn't even think to look for oud teachers!
I live in Italy so, with so many foreigners moving here in the past few years, I'm almost sure finding an oud teacher is not impossible!

I think keeping the oud out of the sun and heat in general is a good idea! It's even recommended, so it won't ruin the paint as it is handmade.

Oud Lovers / Re: Are there any famous oud singers?

Yes there are! You're right, they're not internationally famous, but they are each one of a kind!
I would say my personal favorite is Mohamed el Qasabgi (don't ask me how to pronounce his last name! :D ). Just google him, you will be able to listen to some of his music :)
