Ud  -  Arabian Lute, Egypt

arabian lute.
six courses of nylon strings.
A comparison of the modern photograph with the historic illustration from Sebastian Virdungs Musica getutscht shows clearly, how similar the Arabian lute and its Renaissancelaute counterpart are. In the middle ages and still in the renaissance musicians and luthiers had not yet introduced fundamental changes to the construction of the instrument apart from the frets.
Many musicians use in fact arabian instruments for their historicly informed performances.
