eKoa construction

Recommended Posts

A while ago I got to try out a Blackbird Clara ukulele, which is made from eKoa, a flax-based composite material that looks and sounds a lot like wood, but can be molded like carbon fiber. To cut to the chase, it sounded absolutely gorgeous. The eKoa allows a lot of design features on the ukulele that just wouldn't be possible with traditional wood construction.


I was recalling the experience this morning, and the idea occurred to me that perhaps some aspiring concertina maker could find interesting applications for this material.
