Cumbus is pure fun! Basically taking the Oud with all its history and style, and turning it into a modern exciting variation. People love Cumbus mainly because of its addictive sound, which has become famous for the Gypsy style and with Night Ark’s music.

About the cumbus
The highlight of the Cumbus is the alum bowl that resonates the sound. The membrane in the Cumbus is usually plastic and sometimes real natural skin. The Cumbus is tuned in variety of options, from normal Oud: C F A D G C (low to high), Though high tuning sound better to us. Another favorable tuning is F A D G C F (low to high). We also suggest you to try tightening the butterfly screw that connects the bowl and the neck. This will change the string action and the sound. Read more about the Cumbus family
