The Godin MultiOud Encore Nylon is an electro-acoustic, fretless instrument featuring 11 nylon strings. Based on the ancient Middle-Eastern Oud, the Godin MultiOud innovates by eliminating tuning and amplification issues that countless musicians face with the more traditional version of the instrument.
It features custom voiced electronics with undersaddle transducer in the bridge controlled via an onboard preamp for optimal amplified sound. The preamp also features a built-in tuner, which helps to make this 11-string simple to tune and keep as such via the custom tuning machine heads.
The Godin MultiOud is tuned (low to high) as follows: F,A,D,G,C,F.
