Hello everybody!

I'm coming to Istanbul to learn more about oud and also to buy a new turkish oud.
(I'm playing now 2 years and play mostly old rebetika songs)

But I have a little problem : I'm coming and flying back with easy jet and they seem to be a bit nervous with music instruments on board.

So I realized that I couldn't take my old oud with me, and fly back with a second one...

The fact is that I will start quickly ,at my arrival in istanbul, oud lessons and I don't want to be in hurry to buy an oud. (I want to take the time to try and visit different luthiers before buying)

I already asked my local oud teacher but he's not able to lend me a oud, because he has only one.

That's why I'm asking if someone had maybe an turkish oud (turkish tuning, E A b e a d for exemple) to lend me for the first week of my arrival (I'm flying on the 29 of may from France) until I find an oud and buy it for myself

Thanks a lot a lot for any helpfull information!!

Christos
