Deep Strings with a flavour of the Orient

The Oud is a traditional Persian instrument which gained recognition during the 7th and 9th centuries. The word “Oud“ comes from the Arabic “ud”, which literally means “Wood“. However, nowadays, its translation is simply known as “String instrument“. The Oud is considered the most dynamic and most flexible instrument in the Middle East. It is also prevalent in folk music. The Oud is also known as “The Prince of Instruments”.

Cinematique Instruments succeeded in giving it a modern expression in addition to the organic sound and feel. The Oud has a brilliant oriental sound which they have enriched with many small features.

A decent Oud VI. Not great or bad, just somewhere in the middle. I will probably use it when I need an Oud sound that drops into the background. It does not seem detailed enough for solo or primary melody use.

Best Service: Check out the Arabic Oud by Bassam Ayoub.
