OVERVIEW

Beautiful to play with a selection of modeled acoustic-electric sounds.

The Godin MultiOud is based upon the ancient middle-eastern 11-string fretless instrument called the Oud. Inspired by the countless musicians struggling with the issues of tuning and amplifying such an instrument comes the Godin MultiOud.

This Godin Multiac series addition will allow Oud players to be amplified in loud & live band settings for the first time and without feedback. It features custom voiced electronics with bridge & microphone options via an onboard preamp with built-in tuner. Godin took the MultiOud to a recording studio and used a variety of mics on it. When they found a sound they liked, they modeled that sound into the preamp's circuitry. The result is selection of Oud miked sounds that won't feedback and can be blended with the bridge pickup.

Also, as opposed to previous Oud instruments, the MultiOud is a breeze to tune and keep in tune, thanks to specially engineered machine heads by Godin. Truly a fantastic instrument.

The MultiOud is built and assembled in Richmond QC, Canada and includes a gig bag.

    Comments about Godin MultiOud Nylon Acoustic-Electric Oud:

    The instrument tunes easily and stays in tune, even in varying humidity and temperature conditions, needs only minor adjustments from day to day. It may not sound exactly like oud purists would like it to but I believe that a real acoustic oud that plays well and tunes well would cost a lot more than Godin Multioud does. I certainly would recommend going for the Multioud version with internal mikes as it has virtually infinite number of sounds you can dial in, it is well worth the additional cost.

      Comments about Godin MultiOud Nylon Acoustic-Electric Oud:

      I have had the opportunity to play one of these instruments a couple of times. It sounds more like a guitar than any OUD I have ever played in my 25 years of experience. It's bulky and heavy, but pretty to look at. If you like instrument art, it would make an excellent "Wall Hanger" because the overall sound is flat!

      The two music stores I have seen these instruments in always have them tuned like a guitar instead of a traditional Arabic (DGADGC) or Turkish (EABEAD) tuning. If it's tuned like a guitar, it must be a guitar. Just my $0.02 cents!
