CERAMIC
YUKALELE

Material experiment

The main question of this project was - can ceramic material be used as a membrane?

 

For a professional string builder, building a main body could take - 95~100 working hours because of the precise carpentry work on the membrane to make it thin enough for the sound waves but strong enough for the string tension.

The idea of a ceramic strings instrument is to apply one casting that is designed  to combine the acoustics cell and the membrane together. Doing so helps them withstand tension and vibrations while being thin enough for producing sound waves.
