Deep Strings
with a flavour of the Orient

The Oud is an old Persian string instrument with many nylon strings. We have succeeded in giving it a modern expression in addition to the organic sound and feel. The Oud has a brilliant oriental sound which we have enriched with many small features. We are happy to put out a versatile instrument with lots of possibilities.

What is an Oud?

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”.
