In the market in general, there are some of these instruments that are good enough for decoration, they seem perfect on the screen, but they live for a very short time with absolutely terrible sounds. Because we know how expensive shipping is, we have to take care of every aspect of inspection in all areas of the instrument before we ship the oud to the customer.

Handmade Arabic oud
For your information, the type of Ouds in general; Arabic, Turkish, and Iraqi
The Identity of the Arabic Oud
The Arabic oud is considered to be the middle sized oud, for the measurement of the neck. The tuning of the Arabic oud also uses the world standard of 440 hz and is tuned to the vocal range of a male and female singer. The Arabic Oud has a rich sound and it is considered to be the Sultan of Sounds when it is used in harmony with Arabic singers to perform Saltana singing or Tarab music. Like the bass in Jazz music, the oud is the main instrument of the Tarab music genre and culture.
The Identity of the Turkish Oud
The Turkish oud is larger than other ouds and it produces a deeper sound with more mid-low bass. Turkish oud is easily identifiable from the Rossetta design that covers the holes of the oud. The Rosetta keeps more of the sound in the body of the instrument and this is what creates the deeper sound. The tuning of Turkish oud is unique because each note is tuned to be one and a half notes lower than the common oud notes. For example, playing an open string of C on an Iraqi or Egyptian oud would be a Bb on the Turkish oud.
The Identity of the Iraqi Oud
The Iraqi oud has three open holes that are never covered and the smaller size of the Iraqi oud results in a sharper sound. A unique feature of the Iraqi oud is that there is a floating bridge for the strings and then the strings connect to the base of the oud. The Iraqi oud is tuned to the world standard of 440 hz in the range from F to F.
