I think may well be cooler than the carbon fiber fork on my road bike (and Yo Yo rocks one!).
Luis and Clark of Milton, MA has taken the carbon fiber movement to some of the world’s most classical instruments. In a profession where old woods make the best sounds, a carbon fiber instrument may come off as too progressive, but once you listen and watch the testimonials on their website, you’ll soon appreciate the skill it took in re-introducing such instruments to new molds and materials.
The carbon fiber cello seen above is an incredible example of what can be made. Super light weight and strong, Luis and Clark’s Carbon Fiber Instruments may well be the future the classics have been waiting for.
