5 of 5 Great strings, great price July 20, 2018
Reviewer: Bodhi from N/A  
I tried these for the first time recently after hearing about them in various places and by a number of people. I was very surprised by the quality at this very low price. I would place them better than many other well known companies that sell at twice the price and to get better personally I think you have to start hitting the $30 mark. Great strings, great price. Highly recommended.

3 of 5 Ok but nylon is not right July 20, 2018
Reviewer: DAMHA from N/A  
I have tried the Arabic set. The wound strings seems fine, but I don't like the first and second nylon courses, C (DO) and G (So)l. They are very floppy, the sound is not right and low on my 60cm Oud. Mari' should have indicated the strings gauge and lengths on the SET itself as a guide. The majority of the ouds in the markets are 60cm, so why they have only taken into account the 61-62cm scales?! I have also read on the Internet that the higher strings are meant to be for the Turkish tuning but they are included in the Arabic set, very bad if it is true! To sum up, the wound strings are ok, but the nylon strings are not on my 60cm Arabic oud!

Response from OudStrings:
Hi Damha, thanks for your comments.  I agree with you on the old set's trebles were too light for many ouds (though they were still heavier than Mari's regular Turkish set), so on the more recent sets I had him make the trebles a bit heavier still.  I believe it's a noticeable improvement on many ouds.

5 of 5 Perfect July 20, 2018
Reviewer: Martin from N/A  
This string set is the best I ever tried for my Nazih Ghadban 60 cm oud. Tension is perfect, sound is perfect and the balance from a string to another is perfect as well. Nice job M. Mari. I think that the specifications from oudstrings also helped a lot.
