The centuries-old tradition of coiling and carving bamboo is unique to Vietnam. Craftsmen shape the material by hand to form shells. Multiple layers of varnish are then applied to create a natural finish. The resulting design merges traditional manufacturing techniqueswith modern technology-the spherical shell lets sound resonate acoustically, a Bluetooth connection offers flexibility, while the integrated potentiometer allows precise volume control.
