I honestly hope to understand oud to a greater degree , participation in my passion with direct knowledge based on experience not the words of a salesman. This project and many others are more about understanding then money and I don’t expect much will be sold and most will be given. So many projects lined up and at some point I will get to the high grade Chips
EJayB did not want to tell me what he spent on the wood he used because he was afraid it would offend others in such a niche market. People seem to charge what ever they want. I am arguing that you can say what price you spent on wood as it will not destabilize the market as people realize they can make oud themselves and save money. Seems unlikely. Although some dealers might be really sensitive IDK.
