The Egyptian oud is usually characterized with a very warm romantic sound. It is the oud that played on Oum Kulthum and Fairuz recordings. ‘Gawharet El Fan’ in Cairo, is the company that produces the world’s best selling oud. For a rather cheap price, you are getting a well crafted oud with a warm timbre, ease of play and traditional egyptian design. Each Oud goes through full setup: Pegs sharpening, new German Pyramid© strings and nat respacing. That is, so you can take the oud and play it straight away.
