Giant bamboo is one of the strongest woods known to man and has been used for thousands of years in the construction of wooden flutes. Now, even guitars and ukuleles are being made of this versatile and sustainable wood. Bamboo has a higher compressive strength than brick or concrete and hardness that rivals steel. The durability of our bamboo wood products is outstanding and color doesn’t stray. The best part? Proceeds from your purchase help someone hear for the first time through Starkey Hearing Foundation.
