In our workshop we frequently develop experimental instruments. Our current project can be seen at the music convention in Frankfurt this year.
Our latest idea was to use bamboo as our starting material. The thought of not having to use any varnish was facinating to us as this material naturally grows with a slight shiny surface and is very dense.
Because of its features we tried to also use this material for the soundboard construction. In this process we decided to build a sandwich soundboard based on our doubletop construction. The tonal result was astounding as we had developed a quite loud and fast responding guitar with a very pleasant sound.
You can take a look at this instrument at the music convention in Frankfurt from April 7th – 10th, hall 8.0 / stand D95, at our premium dealer „Siccas-Guitars“.
