Green ukeleles…

21.02.2011 (4:06 pm) – Filed under: Ukulele ::

Un article non pas sur les fameux ukulélés peints en vert à 20 euros, mais sur les produits sur le marché qui font quelques efforts pour l’environnement…

Tout nouveaux il y a les cordes Aquila en Bionylon® Les toutes premières cordes synthétiques musicales respectueuses de l’environnement . Le Bionylon® contient 67-70% d’un dérivé végétal (huile de ricin),ceci réduit de 50% les émissions de dioxide de carbone durant la synthèse du polymère par rapport à la production des Nylons standard utilisés dans ce domaine.. (en stock dans notre boutique, taille soprano /concert/ténor) .

Niveau touché on se rapproche des cordes en nylon traditionnel, niveau son ca rend très bien à mon goût. Elles sont plus tendues que sur les Aquila Nylgut, cela les rendra plus accessibles aux débutants.

Pour les instruments les essences comme le koa peuvent être remplacées le bambou ou autres alternatives provenant de sources tracables (Noyer européen certifié  par example)…voir ici et ici

Pour les plus sérieux le mieux est encore de réduire sa consommation «Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle » une belle excuse pour se lancer dans le vintage !

[traduction]Not a post about those green painted 20 euro ukes, but a review of the products on the market making an effort for the environment..

Just out on the market we have Aquila’s Bionylon® strings. The very first eco-friendly synthetic string in the world. These Ukulele strings are made of rounded, smooth Bionylon® monofilaments that also boasts excellent acoustic and mechanical properties. Bionylon® is, for its 67-70%, a plant’s derivate (castor oil); this allows a reduction of the 50% of carbon dioxide’s emissions in the atmosphere during the polymer- synthesis than the other common Nylons employed for musical strings. (in stock in our shop, soprano /concert/tenor size) .

They feel close to traditional nylon, and the sound works well to my taste. As they feel more tense than nylgut strings they can be better for beginners in particular.

As for instruments species such as koa can be replaced by bamboo or other alternatives coming for a traceable sustainable source (certified European walnut for example) …see here et here

For the serious green players the best is certainly to stop consuming and «Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle » a great excuse to get started with a vintage ukelele !
