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 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 oud is 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 strings, which are still used in Morocco. Arabic ouds with five courses are the most common ones.
