Double Top Turkish & Arabic Ouds
Acoustic efficiency of all instruments is less than 1% and very low. Double top technique is one of the various techniques developed to increase this efficiency and has been successfully applied for the first time on the guitar.
In this technique, a soundboard is prepared between two pieces of very fine wood material using a honeycomb-shaped Nomex layer. Thus, the structure is very light and durable but contributes to the instrument both in terms of volume increase and tonal aspect.
