Veysel Sarikus Joseph Tawadros Signature Series Oud

Elegance, Quality – A Celebration Of Sound

Finishing the JT Signature Oud

Master Oud Luthier Veysel Sarikus is proud to present the Joseph Tawadros Signature Series Oud.

This is an exciting new instrument by one of the world’s great young Oud makers.

Through traditions passed down from luthiers in his family, Veysel has learnt to adapt the acoustics and aesthetics of traditional oud making to the needs of the modern oud player.

Working closely with Egyptian-Australian Oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros, Sarikus designed the Oud to JT’s specifications. The JT Signature Oud offers a wide range of dynamics and a sweet Arabic sound which will appeal to oud enthusiasts, from beginners right through to professional and virtuoso performers and at an affordable price.

JT is an adventurous and highly skilled musician who has collaborated on stage and in the studio with artists from diverse genres, including traditional Arabic musicians, New York jazz legends, rock bands, orchestras and folk musicians from all over the world.

I think this oud will suit players who love the deep, solid, well rounded and charming Arabic sound, but also want to explore it on a modern platform, not just in the traditional sense… I’ve played on a lot of ouds and I can honestly say, it is by far the best new Arabic oud I’ve ever played. I have great respect for Veysel Sarikus and his fine new instrument line.

Veysel and I wanted to collaborate on a great sounding and well balanced oud which met the standards of any Arabic style player without breaking the budget and I think we’ve achieved this. – JT
