I dislike wood as material from a practical point of view, and from an aesthetic POV I think the Bernolin looks better than 99% of wooden instruments. Reviews suggest the Resin sounds just as good – the reason Plastic usually doesn’t sound as good, based on everything I’ve read, isn’t about its properties as a material, but rather a result of the usual way of working with it – injection molding – not allowing the same details or adjustments as wood. The Bernolin uses Resin, but it’s created not via injection molding but via a process similar to that used with wood. Just like with wood, you can send it back for re-tuning if it’s ever needed.
