Topic: Bamboo guitar stand

I am writing an Engineering project on a guitar stand. (at the OU Engineering Degree)
I propose that the steel stand can be changed for a material that has less of an impact on the environment.

The questions are.
Would you buy a stand made of bamboo?
Would cost of stand be a factor in buying one? (cheaper one wins out)
What do you think of the guitar stand that you own?
Would the environmental angle be a contributing factor in your purchase of a stand?

Thanks for any feedback.

Re: Bamboo guitar stand

cutting down bamboo can have a negative impact on the environment

guitar stand are important for most git players
steel (iron) is a benign substance and readily available ( 35% of the planet earth )
why start depriving nature ..esp. certain species of a square meal

Re: Bamboo guitar stand

There is already bamboo farmers in the Far East. In Japan especially it is not being harvested so having a detrimental effect on the environment.  Bamboo is a grass and only takes a short time, less than one season to grow to maturity required for the industrial process. Steel production is one of the worst environmental industries but as it's made on a massive scale it is a cheap product. This is for my engineering degree project and we have to ask questions like this as this is what product and manufacturing in engineering are today all about, sustainability.

making guitar stands with bamboo will not solve economic problems

it should be processed into some bi product of unusual properties that will reap rewards

ps...bamboo could be made to replace plastic as naturally degradable packaging
NOW THERES A WINNER ♪♪
and dont forget where you heard it first

Re: Bamboo guitar stand

No it is just a project for university. We are given topic heading and have to work with them.
This is called research for the project, to see what impact on the public is with new products.
It's all hypothetical.
