No the website is still running, as long as you do not approach the instruction page directly from the main page. Apparently, they base their instruments on Oud Construction and Repair by Richard Hankey.Phil Hibari wrote:Thanks alot guys !!
Amr Maamoun !
If you plan to build an oud probably the best source for information is "Mike's oud forum".
But it seems to be down for a while now, if it does not open again write me PN I can support you with plans and stuff.
A nice impression will give the site of "Khalaf Oud".
I can give you one important tip: use a mold for constructing the body !
It means more work in first place but you have not so much trouble like building it free handed.
Haha! I just noticed that. I was busy admiring the wood, and I did not notice those machine tuners! I think pegs are much better for the oud, since they would keep the headstock nice and lightweight.Amr Maamoun wrote: I like the simplicity and beauty of the form...however I noticed that you used guitar tuning machines on it, why not traditional tuning pegs? Wouldn't that be cheaper?
