Subject: RE: oud simulator?
I've heard a fretless nylon string Renaissance (the brand not the
era) by Rick Turner do a very convincing oud like sound, The model is the
RN6, and I know of at least one jazz guitarist in the Pittsburgh area who
has one but I don't remember his name. They are not cheap, The budget
alternative would be to yank the frets from an Epiphone Chet Atkins copy an
fill in the holes with wood filler. I do know that Rick has made a few
instruments with lament woods that are less expensive, but still have the
great pickups and construction.
Hey - does anyone happen to know if there's an effects pedal or box
that simulates an egyptian oud? I am soooo tired of dealing with
maintainence problems with a real one - it would be awesome if there
a simulation for guitar. Any info?
