SPECIAL NOTE: No Warranty on Strings: On occasion instruments may arrive with a broken string, therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings as soon as it arrives. We recommend the LaBella OU80 String Set (Item Code: LBSOUDT). If you want to tune this shorter scale Turkish Oud in the Arabic style (D, G, A, D, G, C), we recommend the D'Addario J95 Oud string set. NOTE: We do not recommend tuning the J95 oud string set in the Turkish style.
