MusiCaravan.com specializes in musical instruments from the Mid-east, especially Turkey, such as oud, ney and bendir. We also supply strings for the oud and electric glue pots for working with hot hide glue, as well as the hide glue itself.
We carry ouds, particularly Turkish ouds. However, we repair both the Turkish oud and the Arabic oud. We have an exceptional selection of fine concert quality ouds, and some student quality ouds.
We also carry a selection of frame drums, particularly the Turkish bendir (popular for Sufi music), and others as well.
Finally, we have a selection of Turkish style neys (end blown cane flutes used in Turkish classical and Sufi music). Hank Levin also makes neys to order.
Our oud strings are hand-made of the highest quality materials and made to the most exacting standards. We make oud strings for the standard Turkish-Armenian tuning, the classical Turkish tuning for Turkish classical music.
Our oud strings for standard Arabic tuning are the finest quality, used by top professional musicians.
We also sell sets of PVF (poly-vinyl fluorocarbon) oud string trebles, for increased brilliance and volume.
Hank Levin does professional repairs on both ouds and neys. Call for consultation and appointment.
Our hand-made Brass Glue Pot, in combination with our Electric Warmer, is an heirloom tool especially designed for instrument makers and fine woodworkers who want to work with hot hide glue. We also sell the finest quality Hide Glue, especially formulated for instrument making and fine cabinet construction, restoration, veneer work and marquetry.
