I bought a new oud that been sitting for whom know how long.
Nylon strings only last an average of two months. My coffers were low.
What's a girl to do: buy these strings for ten dollars whereas
Some other strings cost thirty.
They shipped fast and in no time I was able to string
And hear my oud played at it's finest.
I can immediately hear a HUGE DIFFERENCE in sound.
Thank you J addario for your amazing quality and pricing in
Fretted stringed instruments!
Thank you.

Bought these strings cause I bought my oud with a missing set of high F strings. First off, these strings are set for an F# - B - E - A - D - G tuning, which I've never even heard of. I tuned the high string up to F, a whole step lower than what it says it tunes to, and the damn string broke. What a bummer. I should have just hucked out the extra bucks for a set of Pyramid strings. I put some Pyramids on my Sitar... AMAZING. Pyramid makes incredible, professional quality strings. You WILL notice the difference, guaranteed. I'll be buying some to replace this crap. Don't get me wrong, D'Adarrio makes great guitar strings... I've got some fretless bass strings made by them and I love em. They should just stick to what they're good at, because they obviously don't even realize that MOST oud players want a classic Arabic or Turkish tuning, not this "what the hell is this?" tuning. On top of all of that, what SHOULD be my low F string was stripped on the end... luckily not in the middle of the string or it would have been unplayable. On the plus side, the strings that didn't snap sound great, but there were just too many flaws with this set for me to give them a good review. Don't waste your time. Spend the extra cash on a nice set of Pyramids. They will at least tell you if you're getting an Arabic or Turkish tuning. Hope this helps.

These strings were beautiful to hear. My old strings were really bad (My oud is largely decorative but, since it's what I have, I'm doing my best to play it as nicely as it can be played) and these gave the instrument so much more musical value. They were an excellent quality and easy to install (although if you don't know how you'll want to find an on-line guide or book to guide you). They don't stay in tune on mine very long but I suspect it's a peg issue on mine not so much the fault of the strings. I will definitely buy these again in the future when I need new strings.

I had just put on a set of a different brand when I ordered three sets of these as spares. That is why I am only going to rate at three stars. It will be some time before I am ready to restring my oud again but can later down the road update anyone who wishes to know.

The package lists the courses as G, D,A,E,B,F#. I was hoping to get a set of C,G,D,A,F,C and the product description omitted this valuable information.
I have not put these on my oud yet so I cannot rate the sound.

Great quality, very good sound. I have tried it on my Mid-east electric oud and also on an acoustic Egyptian oud and both sounded great. i highly recommend them for beginners and decent players.

These strings have amazingly clear tone, and my Oud sounds twice as loud now. I wasn't looking forward to changing my strings, but now I'm looking forward to the next time - these are 10/10
