From acoustic amplifiers to bookshelf speakers, here’s a roundup of the best bamboo audio equipment out there.
It’s not hard to find quality speakers and acoustic amplifiers, but finding the right ones to match your home’s decor is another matter. Depending on your personal taste, you might like having a few black boxes hanging around the corners of your apartment and on tabletops. These can be great additions to your room. If you’re looking for electronics with a more a natural look though, bamboo is an ideal choice. It looks fresh, ages well, and can provide top-notch sound in a variety of ways. Here are five bamboo speakers and amplifiers to consider:
Acoustic Acorn Bluetooth speaker
The Acoustic Acorn made by John Webber of CarvedProducts is available on Etsy. It’s a top-seller that’s been favorited by over 1,000 buyers. The speaker’s beautiful rounded shape allows this device to organically integrate with your home’s decor. It’s wireless, operating on Bluetooth and boasts up to seven continuous hours of playtime. With a 30-foot wireless range and outdoor-readiness, you’ve got a wide range of options for placement. It’s made from real bamboo and can be operated with the flick of a button.

Acoustic iPhone speaker stand
Looking for a multi-purpose device? This handmade acoustic speaker (another amplifier with no cables), also serves as a charging and docking station for your iPhone. It’s designed to accommodate any regular sized 5 series or later iPhone. If you have a plus-sized phone the maker states that they can custom design the device to fit. As a plus, the front of each speaker has an original art design on it that was hand cut on a scroll saw by Jay Roberts. For guaranteed authenticity, each piece comes signed.
