Faruk Türünz Ouds
Faruk Türünz' shop makes the most beautiful ouds in my opinion. Here are a couple of their recent designs that I particularly like:
Zeynel Demirtaş with his double soundboard cedar top oud:
Double soundboard cedar top with an ebony bowl:
This is my newest oud, a Türünz custom single Turkish oud that I had designed to my specifications, with a palisander and platanus orientalis bowl and a spruce soundboard:
Here is my Türünz custom single Arabic oud. The bowl is made of alternating santos and curly maple, and the soundboard is spruce. I bought this one in 2014.
Tasos Theodorakis Ouds
Tasos Theodorakis is a Greek luthier located in Thessaloniki. His ouds look and sound fantastic. Here are a few pictures of an oud he made for Mavrothi Kontanis, currently owned by Matt Schreiber, (photos by Jean Biz Hertzberg):
Nazih Ghadban Ouds
Nazih Ghadban of Beirut also makes beautiful Arabic style ouds. Here are a couple of ouds from his website:
More to come!
