"I have an Oud by Yildirim Palabiyik... It is a superb instrument with a rich and resonant tone and timbre.  It is immaculately crafted and also it holds tune very well.  My Oud was made for mid to advanced student and I am sure it will take me a long way along the road to perfecting technique and art of the Oud.  I want to buy another of his Ouds which is Professional model.  I already play Cello and have a beautiful Cello so am keen to have an Oud of similar quality to develop and grow with."

This is what Mike's Oud Forum Members are saying about Yildirim Palabiyik's Ouds...
-Spyblaster (Iran)
"I would like to share my latest experience with Yildirim here in this forum.
I recevied the oud I ordered from Yildirim. The best word I can find to describe this oud is "P E R F E C T"
1- Appearance 2- Tonality 3- Dimensions 4- finishing 5- action and playability........ everything full marks.
Add to that how easy to deal with this guy. Communication with him is so smooth and easy. The purchasing and shipment process was flawless. His committment to timliness is perfect..... and finally the price is reasonable. The oud you get for the money you pay to Yildirim is not to be compared honestly.
This guy deserves every single cent I paid for this oud.....and honestly he deserves more. I have many ouds here, made by famous luthiers. I beleive Yildirim's oud will be the crown jewel in my collection. I fell in love with this oud from the very first minutes.
I would highly recommend Yildirim ouds. I have had a lot of experiences with almost all famous luthiers...... the Yildirim oud experience will surely be one of the most distinguished."
