Not everyone is always interested in the latest and cutting edge technological breakthroughs when it comes to instrument making.  We discussed in previous blogs about the accuracy, professionalism and sound that comes out of synthetically built instruments such as the oud and darbuka, but some players no matter what you tell them, show them even compare with, they always look into techniques and methods that are old school and naturally hand crafted.  Why? Because some critics say that even though you can synthesize the sound of an instrument, you will never be able to clone its soul.
