Electric Oud

Electric Oud :

The oud, with its deep, resonant tones, has captivated audiences for centuries across the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond. But for modern musicians seeking to push boundaries and ignite stages, the traditional acoustic oud might not be enough. Enter this musical story , a revolutionary instrument that blends the rich heritage of the oud with the versatility of electric amplification.

Unleash the Power of Amplification: A Guide to Electric Ouds

A World of Sonic Possibilities

At Tapadum, we understand the desire to explore new sonic landscapes. That’s why we offer a diverse range of electric ouds, each unlocking a unique world of musical expression. Here’s a breakdown of the three main types to help you find the perfect fit:

1. The Familiar Embrace: Classical Oud

The classical electric oud bridges the gap between tradition and innovation. This instrument retains the familiar shape and playing experience of the acoustic oud, but with the added power of magnetic pickups. These pickups convert the vibrations of the strings into electrical signals, allowing you to amplify the sound and add effects pedals for a wider tonal palette.


  • Faithfully reproduces the traditional oud sound
  • Ideal for musicians who want to seamlessly integrate electric capabilities into their traditional playing style
  • Perfect for stage performances where clear and consistent amplification is crucial

2. The Best of Both Worlds: Semi-Acoustic Electric Oud

For those who crave both the warmth of an acoustic oud and the flexibility of an electric instrument, the semi-acoustic electric oud is the answer. These ouds often feature a hybrid design, combining a hollow body with a built-in pickup system.

Key Features:

  • Smaller body size compared to classical ouds, reducing feedback on stage
  • Maintains a natural acoustic resonance for a more traditional sound
  • Equipped with pickups for amplification and effects processing


  • Provides a balanced blend of acoustic and electric tones
  • Perfect for live performances where maintaining acoustic character is desired alongside electric manipulation
  • Offers greater versatility for musicians who want to explore both traditional and modern styles

3. Unbound Exploration: The Silent Oud

For the truly adventurous musician, the silent oud breaks free from the constraints of acoustic resonance. This electric oud features a solid body, similar to an electric guitar, resulting in minimal acoustic sound. Its power lies entirely in the pickup system, allowing for a blank canvas of sound to be sculpted with effects pedals and synthesizers.

Why Choose Silent?

  • Ideal for experimental music creation and studio recordings
  • Offers complete control over sound design with limitless effects possibilities
  • Perfect for late-night practice sessions without disturbing others
