3D-printed reinterpretation of the Ukulele
Hybrid project for 3D Music Instruments and Simply D3sign. The Dr.Ukulele is both a beautiful musical instrument and a design object which makes use of 3D-print technologies in order to free a traditional design from the conventional limitations which derive from the traditional production methods.
The name Dr.Ukulele makes reference both to „Dr“ and to „Druck“ („print“, as in 3D-print, in German). The body the instrument is made of one large SLS 3D-printed piece in white plus two additional 3D-printed pieces in colour. The standard ukulele strings (GCEA) are tuned through traditionally-made metal pegs.
The Dr.Ukulele is a concert-sized ukulele calibrated for standard 440-442 Hz. pitch but it can be tuned a half tone higher without any issue.

Payment through bank transfer (to Germany or Switzerland) or Paypal.
For Paypal payments a transfer fee must be added. Since this commission depends on too many factors for us to calculate it (wether you have a Paypal account, the currency of such account, your country, wether you’ll pay using a credit card…) and therefore we ask you to look for the „received amount after fees“ and/or check which fees will apply in your case here.
