Yahya Wengé/Maple stripes/SOLD!
Yahya has proven his mastery in oud making in last years and still surprise me with his gorgeous combination of woods. He's a decent young man with high ambitions but humble attitude of making-oud-for-passion not merely for making money. Each of his ouds has enjoyed his attention for detail and mastery in art of luthierie for a humble price.
His ouds so far have found great places in their new homes and made their owners feel musically richer and more inspired.
