Duduk Case
Excellent craftsmanship. We are very pleased with the case. It was a Christmas present and, because it came from a long distance, it took over a month to arrive. I am pleased with the service and product and would order from Ethic Music again, but sooner next time!

A well-made professional instrument suitable for beginners as well
I was quite surprised that I was able to immediately get useful tone and timbre out of this instrument after searching out some YouTube videos on proper reed preparation. I am mostly a clarinetist but have some experience with oboe and flute, and have watched videos of professional players, so did have some sense of how to play it. Duduk is my favourite world woodwind instrument, so I am overjoyed that I immediately gained confidence that I can learn to play it and that I can quickly get better. I may order a medium reed in case I advance, and am now also curious about the bass model. I feel I got great value, careful shipping, and a pro-level instrument that will grow with my playing.

The sound my new Oud makes is one of a kind. It’s crafted with gorgeous cedar wood and has a unique tone. I’ve been playing stringed instruments for over 25 years. This is probably the first one I’ve ever received that was delivered ready to play. I usually spend days trying to adjust instruments to my liking when I receive them. I did not have to do that with this Oud.

Pros:

*Bout this Oud for a great price, and it was well worth the money for this instrument.
*Fast shipping and delivery, and the package came without a scratch on it.
*A beautiful and unique sound.  The Oud was Perfectly crafted and designed.

Cons

I’ve had my new Oud for about a month now, and I am still looking for a con, but I have not come across one yet.

My brother and I went in on this oud together as a gift for our dad. It looks nice and arrived quickly. Slighly second guessing the style we chose but we’ll see how he likes it.

I got my Oud today and it’s definitely my new favorite thing. I started out with a Turkish oud and a friend let me hear his Arabic Oud and I had to get one for myself.  First, I really like the look of this. I got mine today and it was lighter than I expected and as nice and shiny at it looks coming out of the box, with the rich contrasts of the wood with the lighter rosettes - The bass is uncanny too, this thing rumbles like some kind of powerful, giant bee! Starting from scratch with new tunes is a bummer but I’m downloading some sheet music pdfs now and I LOVE MY NEW OUD! 😀

Affordable yet Quality Fram Drum
This frame is affordable if you are looking for a good quality for reasonable price. Don’t expect very high quality though. But this product has a good quality for its price.

packed very well and safely, delivered in just 8 days !!! When I opened the box and took out the oud, I noticed a few small nuances, somewhere there was glue, somewhere there was a dot on the tree, but when I set it up and started playing. .... I couldn’t believe my ears and my feelings !!! The sound is very warm and deep, very balanced and such an echo !!!! He is just top class!

This Turkish Oud is definitely great. It is more well-suited for learned players, but even beginners can play it with help. I wanted a high-quality professional oud and this was a solid and worthy purchase for sure. Plus, I am in love with its mahogany color and classic Turkish looks. Personally, I found it a little expensive but considering the experience, I don't regret making the purchase at all.

Sweet Oud
I found ethnic musical through the Oud Forum on Facebook. I have experience with oud approx. 8 years. Listened to the sound clips for all models on ethnic website and liked the sound of cedar and walnut best. Oud arrived in US in less than a week.

One month later I am very pleased with the quality and tone of the instrument! Great job ethnic music!

I bought this cool Oud recently, and so far, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase! I love that I get to enjoy both worlds with the option of switching from semi-acoustic to electric without changing instruments. It has a beautiful and authentic sound that will mesmerize your audience; either way, you play it. This beauty is perfect for rocking out the folk-rock music I play, but you can also play any kind of rock, jazz, funk, the blues, and many other types of music as well. 
I like the artistic yet simple, hand-crafted design; it’s a lovely instrument. It’s not too big or bulky, so it’s perfect for traveling or touring.
The only down-side I’ve come across is that it doesn’t have the right sound that it needs to play the traditional Arabic music I enjoy playing.

I purchased this oud specifically because I went on a trip to the middle east and I heard the most beautiful music played from an oud made of mahogany wood. This oud creates tones that are identical to those authentic sounds I heard on my travels overseas. Definitely a great buy.
