ULIM / Haegeum (Instrument)


Ulim is an electric version of korean traditional instrument 'Haegeum'. People who love music are getting easier to play music because many instruments around the world are digitalizationed. But the digitalization of korean instruments are tardier than others. It's because the shape and sound of korean instruments are very unique to foreigners. I designed Ulim to promote the good sound and shape of korean instruments. It has not only the feeling of simple and modern product, but also the spirit of original haegeum.
