Carbon Fiber is a relatively new material in the industry. Given its affordability, more and more we are seeing ukuleles popping up with carbon fiber components.
Carbon Fiber produces a well balanced sound, strong in the treble. It tends to be super clear and surprisingly resonant, seeing that the entire body is one solid piece. The advantage of carbon fiber is the versatility in design. Not only is every colour imaginable a possibility, but these instruments can have unique sound hole arrangements, cutaways, headstocks, and pick ups -- options that are not available, or much more expensive to accomplish, with traditional timber ukuleles. If you are after innovation, carbon fiber is the place to look.
