Professional oud strings

The Arabic oud is the most preferred oud instrument among the types of ouds used in the world. It owes its popularity to its romantic, rich sound and deep timbre. Arabic oud is heavier compared to Turkish ouds given that its soundbox whose bowl is thicker. The bowl of the Arabic oud is thick enough to resist the hard weather conditions such as very high temperatures, heath differences between day and night, etc. When the Professional oud strings are struck, the sustain is shorter in this kind of oud. Arabic ouds are also slightly bigger than the Turkish ouds, and they are mainly used in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, Syria, and the region known as the Levant comprising Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan. However, its reputation has expanded worldwide. After all, Arabic ouds are the ancestors of the European lute. Arabic ouds are fretless instruments, they are played with a single pick. There are several types of Arabic ouds in terms of their number of strings, not all of these types are frequently used by players. There are Arabic ouds with four courses, each course with a pair of string, which are still used in Morocco. Arabic ouds with five courses are the most common ones.  The Arabic oud with eleven Professional oud strings organized in five-courses with an additional course of a single string is also commonly used. 

It has been told that Syrian ouds have exceptional sonority and they have been famous as of the 19th century thanks to their maker, the Nahhat Brothers. The members of this family were as craftsmen, on a small scale. The members of the Nahhat family are the masters who gave the oud its pear shape, and they have produced extraordinary instruments following their research about the sonority of wood. Now, Syrian ouds pursue this tradition and are renowned for their exquisite timbre. Like Turkish ouds, Syrian ouds have six courses, five courses each with a pair of string, and one course with a single string. The extra string in the bass enables the instrument to generate more pitches and more colour with microtones
