JustStrings.com offers GHS Strings’ single strings for the oud, a plucked, short-necked lute regarded in the Arab world as the “king” or “emir” of musical instruments. GHS packages its oud strings in an 11-string set. The strings for the 1st and 2nd “D’s,” and the 3rd and 4th “A’s,” are manufactured from clear nylon; the strings for the 5th and 6th “E’s,” the 7th and 8th “B’s,” the 9th and 10th “A’s,” and the 11th “G” are silver-plated copper wound around nylon. The pear-shaped oud is the principal musical instrument in the Arab world and some African countries, as well. It’s also well-established in Turkey, Iran, Armenia and Azerbaijan. Oud strings from GHS Strings serve this ancient instrument exceptionally well.
