Who We Are

The story of oud manufacturing started in 1976. At that time, the journey began with curiosity. The excitement of discovering the instrument he loved and he played pushed Nazih to dissect the OUD, investigate its sounds, read about its history, pursue a lot of research and experiments to find out all gaps that could be improved.

During the past fifty years, Nazih passed through a long learning curve, which made from the instrument he makes a unique piece of art; Nazih followers noticed the continuous improvement of the instrument he made on all levels.
