Astro Folding Ukulele

I love travel style ukuleles of all sorts.  Finding ways to make instruments ultra portable is fascinating to me.

I’ve built a many different kinds of travel ukuleles.  I even made a ukulele with a retractable neck.

If a neck folds for storage, the strings need to be managed.  The new folding ukulele made by Astro Ukulele has a moving bridge that prevents the string from getting too floppy when it is folded for travel.  When unfolded, it is a soprano ukulele.  It even has two “wings” that pop out to make it easier to hold.

The Astro Ukulele comes in two different models, A and E.  The A is acoustic, and the E is electric.

The Kickstarter campaign  for the Astro Ukulele just launched.  Check out the ukulele models and other perks of the project.

ASTRO UKULELE KICKSTARTER

JUNE 2018 UPDATE:

Unfortunately this project failed to reach its goal on Kickstarter. Hopefully they will find another way to produce this design.
