” If you’re an oud player and have the opportunity to travel, you’ll quickly realize how difficult it is to move a large, sensitive acoustic instrument. After a trip in Turkey, I designed this musical instrument on a computer. Very compact, ergonomic and electrified, it meets the exact needs of a musician who wants to travel and explore the oud universe. ” – Sylvain BD

The first portable electric oud
The sylent-oud is above all a musical instrument designed to travel. That’s why it includes a clever travel kit with reverb and other effects to play alone or with other musicians in acoustic. The sound level is more powerful than a traditional oud.
