Information about Electric ouds:
Electric oud has a pear-shaped body which is a deep, striped bowl made from lightweight wood. It has a large soundbox and light wood body with 2 or 3 sound holes. These holes are generally oval-shaped. The bowl is made from thin and lightweight wood or ribs. The tuning pegs and fingerboard are constructed from ebony. Maple, walnut, rosewood.
Electric oud can be used as electric or acoustic oud with the pickup and equalizer built into the instrument. Turkish electric oud has maple bowls, spruce faces, ebony fingerboards, and bridges. And also, there is an oud that is half oud, and it is weight and easy to carry. However, Arabic electric ouds have a walnut bowl, spruce face, ebony fingerboard, ebony bridge, and bone rosettes. The bowls of professional Arabic electric ouds are made of mahogany, like Syrian electric ouds.
Electric ouds are easy to carry, and their lightness facilitates performers’ trips and long journeys spent on the road. The timbre of electric ouds brings a different approach to performance. Many musicians performing art and folk music prefer electric oud when they adopt a contemporary approach while they are performing and want to obtain different sounds than the sound of acoustic ouds. Musicians prefer electric oud also for its conveniences, such as adjusting the volume, playing the oud in silent mode, etc. With their pickup system, you can connect them to the sound system easily.
