I posted this earlier today on my Ukulele Review site:
Some people may march to the beat of a different drummer, but as a fan of 4 stringed instruments you might strum to the rhythm of a different ukulele. We’ve reviewed ukuleles made of plastic like the Flea and the BugsGear, and we’ve even shown you a ukulele made of LEGO. But how about a ukulele made of flax fiber? The Blackbird Clara ukulele is made of eco-friendly Ekoa composites. It’s the first flax-fiber string instrument on the market. Prices for the Clara concert ukulele start at $1150. Visit the Clara page to learn more.
Using alternative materials to make popular products has always interested me. Blackbird claims that this musical instrument made from plant fiber has a vintage ukulele sound. I agree that it does sound good in their video and I would very much like to try one sometime. However I do wish they offered one with a more traditional shape.
