Buy & Sell Oud / Re: Buying a second hand oud.
« on: January 05, 2015, 02:36:59 PM »
I'm a total beginner in oud... I'm playing viola and nyckelharpa  and some guitar. I like Arabic music and the oud. Last Sunday I was on a flee market (second hand things) and there was an oud for sale. Because I was in a hurry, I didn't had much time so I'll go back this sunday.

The guy asks 160 Euro for it. probably I can get that down a bit.

The instrument looked nice, but the strings were not in good shapen (broken, ...) But since I'm a total beginner, can anyone tell me what I can check/look for to see if this instrument can be a good one? Or at least can be playable for a beginner.I don't think the strings are playable.

Do you have a picture of it that you can share?  If not, maybe the seller can take one for you.  Then you can share it with everyone here.  That would help people tell you the value of it.

In this video you will learn how to install the string on the oud and how to set the oud action.  ::) :P ;)


This video is great.  I had been wondering how to set the action on my oud.  I always like doing things myself.  Thanks guys for sharing this with us.  Iím sure a lot of people will find it to be very useful.

We want to share with you this lesson. What do you think? Should we make some more?

Should you make more?  Absolutely!  Keep them coming!  You donít see quality lessons like these on the internet very often.  How long has he been playing?
