This oud was directly made and imported from Egypt and it comes from the new collection of Egyptian manufacturer Gawharet El Fan. This oud is a very good quality/price instrument. It composed of Walnut, Padauk, Sycamore and Mahogony woods, fingerboard and pegs are made of walnut.
This instrument is handmade and it comes directly from the factory of the manufacturer. A padded case and 3 reeshe ( plectrum) will be delivered with the oud. The top is lightly spotted (cf pic) but the sound isn't impacted.
Important: The oud is originally delivered with 9 strings but is suitable for play up to 12 strings. Thus, we recommend that you change the strings fairly quickly after any online purchase. In fact, your instrument will have undergone a long journey until your home, and the strings will be oxidized during this trip, which will shorten their life expectancy and their sound quality.
Thus, for optimal sound quality, we recommend that you add to your purchase a set of professional strings.
