Turkish Oud, a fretless instrument, is in the category of stringed and plectrum instruments. Turkish oud has a 3 octave sound range and is used as 11 or 12 strings. The boat is in the same dimensions. The body structures are called the drum with a small body and a long handle, and the one with a large body and a short handle is called the Oud. Although it seems to be of Arab origin, it is a fact that Turks developed the oud instrument and that the best masters are Turkish now.
Turkish oud has a unique lane among the lute varieties. Wide sound characteristics arise from these strings. It is played in a way that allows a more special timbre to be heard. Many trees can be used in binary or single forms. These strings, which can make 3-octave sounds, bring Turkish flour to richer points. Thanks to its unique structure, it easily takes its place in Turkish music.
There are 2 main tunings that are suiting the vibrating length of the Turkish oud. The most popular is this one, which is comfortable for most of the Maqam.
Care and storage conditions are very important for your oud musical instrument to remain of the same quality for many years. First of all, you need to keep your oud musical instrument at room temperature. Polishing should be done once a year in order not to deteriorate the quality of the wood used in making oud. It is not correct to keep the oud in humid, humid environments, excessive sunlight, or indoor and hot environments. If you're in a damp environment, it's a good practice to keep it in a light-filled cabinet with as little dampness as possible.
Changing the strings every six months will contribute to keeping the sound quality at a high level. If you are not going to play for a long time, it is better to leave the strings loose.
